Blanket Chest Furniture For Extra Storage
Blanket chest furniture is the perfect solution for providing extra storage in your house. By definition, the blanket chest is a piece of furniture that is meant to store blankets. That can be extended to storing other upholstery stuff too, including bedding and pillows. But in today’s times, we see that people have taken to storing almost everything in their blanket chests. Don’t be surprised if you find a home where they store their precious china, or their newspapers, or even their toddler’s toys. Blanket chest furniture pieces are definitely a European import, probably from the times of the renaissance. Some of these chests, seem like they would be most at home in one of those traditional homes of England in a quaint little corner. Their designs are too English, and the high quality woods that are used in building them even today only add to this impression. But that is what adds to the allure of the chests―just put one in your room and your decor seems to have moved several decades into the past, giving it the retro look.
In the age of retro furniture, blanket chests are making a comeback, but still, it is not to the extent that they were used earlier. Most homes are doing without these for want of space, and because there are so many other options to store their blankets. The settees that are in vogue in small houses are taking care of the added storage space, and there are several people who are putting their blankets in large cabinets too. Add to that, blanket chests are expensive, because they are usually made with the best quality wood.
