One of the elements that I liked most in Lulu DK’s bedroom featured in Lonny is the matching pair of three drawer chests that serve as bedside tables.
I too would like to have a matching pair of chests on either side of my bed for added storage. So I started doing a little online searching, knowing that I’m more likely to get the best deal in thrift/consignment store or auction.
Williams Sonoma Home offers the Fontaine Inlay Chest which is a good option. WS Home describes it as a reproduction of an Italian antique. It would transition well in to other rooms. However, the 2K price tag is a bit much for me.
After searching for Italian chests on Ebay like the one below, I noticed that the price hovered around $2K and above. So I decided I’d better get off the Italian kick and move on to something not quite as old or ornate.
best price so far, $795 and these are in NC
these Henredon commodes are just right! $3,500 however is not
These mahogany chests are lovely and simple but again with the high price tag
Another petite Georgian set, price is a little better
After searching its obvious that a pair of chests that don’t need an overhaul is an investment. What piece of furniture are searching for?
