Wood Storage Chests
Wood storage chests harken back to the blanket chests seen in many New England colonial homes, as well as the rustic cabins favored by the Western pioneers. Early American homes were a bit primitive in their furniture because the inhabitants were forced to live off the land, which explains why wood was a popular furniture choice. Also called hope chests in the past, wood storage chests offer versatile storage options in rooms where space is at a premium. This Alder Blanket Chest would look cozy and inviting in your bedroom, family room, or entryway. You don’t have to store blankets inside a blanket chest – use it to store anything from precious family heirlooms to eyesores you don’t want cluttering the house.
Today’s savvy interior decorators are using wood storage chests as coffee and console tables because they create interesting visual contrasts and make a bold decorative statement. Many also enjoy adding a wood storage chest as their nightstand. Painting a blanket chest white matches other “shabby chic” items you may have in your bedroom or living room, while leaving it unfinished can help you create a rustic cottage look for your Portland-area home. You could even “distress” the look of your wood storage chest to add more appealing textures to your home décor.
Finished vs. Unfinished Furniture: What’s the Big Deal?
You may be asking yourself what’s the difference between finished and unfinished furniture. Does that mean it hasn’t been assembled? Unfinished furniture is a highly-coveted type of wood furniture that’s usually purchased as-is without a factory finish already applied to it. Many people seek unfinished furniture because it’s often available at a cheaper cost than finished furniture pieces. Others prefer its natural beauty and the endless customization possibilities it affords once you bring it home. You get to choose its finish and how it would complement other pieces of furniture you already have in your home or office. Whether you want to paint, stain, wax, or varnish it, the decision is entirely up to you and not the furniture manufacturer. In today’s mix-and-match world, unfinished furniture has been gaining in popularity. Many customers are adding a piece or two at a time as their home décor budget allows. Natural Furniture is proud to be your preferred choice for unfinished wood furniture in Portland, OR and surrounding areas, including Amity, Beaverton, Dundee, Salem, Vancouver, Washington, and Woodburn.
