Decorate in classic colonial style with this heirloom-quality four-drawer Chippendale chest. Add a handsome storage solution and an elegant note to any room in the house with the addition of this piece. The fine attention to detail and superior craftsmanship of a 6th-generation furniture maker have resulted in a chest that will last for generations to come.
This solid mahogany Chippendale chest features brass hardware with a lacquered finish. Many details contribute to long-term durability. Drawers are dovetailed front and back with a beaded edge hand applied by a skilled craftsman. The drawer sides are made from soft maple wood. The chest’s side panels run to the floor, and the feet are then attached around them. This method equally distributes the weight on the side panels and helps minimize cracks over time. An elegant example of the “plain but neat” furniture style preferred by 18th-century Virginians, the Chippendale chest is as useful and beautiful today as it would have been centuries ago.
