Double Dressers

Double Dressers

Double dressers are the gold standard for bedroom storage. They provide an optimal balance of storage space and drawer count, with an aesthetically pleasing symmetrical design. Double dressers are the most prevalent because of the effective design, so there are many styles and colors available to fit your bedroom. Traditional-style double dressers are very easy to come by as this tried-and-true design has been around for generations, but the prevalence of double dressers assures you can find them in styles from Classic Traditional to Modern Contemporary and everywhere in-between.

Six drawer double dressers are the most common type, with a 3×2 design. A row of smaller drawers sometimes accompanies the primary drawers (usually as the top row), intended to organize smaller and more delicate items. Sometimes these rows include three or four smaller drawers, rather than a double row, but the primary design of the piece is still a double dresser. A well-designed double dresser provides ample storage space for the average person’s wardrobe (excluding closet items that need to be hung, of course), and larger models with a 4×2 design may even be enough to accommodate couples in a single unit. Double dressers often include optional mirrors to enhance their style and functionality in the bedroom, great for getting dressed in the morning.

Double dressers are generally intended for bedroom use, though the effective storage capabilities and aesthetics of many models make them viable in other living spaces, as well. But if you are looking for the ideal bedroom storage solution that provides ample space and a good drawer count in a compact unit, you can’t beat the design of a double dresser. And as one of the most popular furniture pieces manufactured, there are models out there that will perfectly fit the style and personality of your bedroom.

When something works, it just works. And double dressers are something that just works.

March Madness is here! As you watch your favorite team, are you happy with the area around your TV? Is it time to upgrade to a beautiful Entertainment Center?

Watching TV is typically the main function of a living room, and so your TV is the focal point. Everything, including furniture, is centered on the TV, which can be an eye sore or even throw off the whole style of a room. Enter — Entertainment Centers! If you have the space, framing the TV can help blend the room together or even hide your TV when it’s not being used. Plus, you can never get enough storage space!

High Point Furniture Market 2014

High Point Furniture Market 2014

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Furniture Market in High Point, NC. Everything from the weather to new product selection was fantastic! What stood out to me were the fabric selections from various vendors, here a few of my favorites!

Room Inspirations!

Every Morning when I get into the office, I check out my design-related blogs, articles, emails and whatever else that gets my creative juices going. That is, after I pour myself a gigantic cup of coffee!

I came across a room that sparked my interest and it inspired me to recreate it with our products on FurnitureCrate!

Amy Tyndall foyer

This photo has a lot of different components but somehow work very well together. First, you have the contemporary fabric on a traditional chair. The console table has a coastal, beach feel to it with very traditional lamps and mirror above it. To tie in the coastal theme, they’ve added a sisal rug.

Here’s what I came up with!

Why we love Las Vegas Market – July 2014

Why we love Las Vegas Market – July 2014

It’s always a good time had by all at the Last Vegas Market, but this time I wanted to let you know a little more about it. Sure, the best part is seeing all the new items, design ideas and trends, and don’t worry, we’ll get to that… But networking and communicating with our industry partners is a big part of it. Not only does it allow us as buyers to network with hundreds of potential new manufacturers, but we get to meet and discuss our current state of business with existing suppliers. We are fortunate enough to have a strong sales representation in our home state of Michigan and having the opportunity to meet with many of them in such a short span of time, is rewarding and beneficial in itself!

Ok, now onto some of our favorite new items we saw at market!

A new collection by Aspen Home, which is sure to be a big hit when it becomes available. Industrial has grown significantly this past years, and it is becoming much more elegant in it’s design.

Grandfather clocks have come a long way.. check out these new contemporary versions from Howard Miller!

Gray is still the new beige, Lots of gorgeous grey toned sofa collections


Accessories are really getting fun!

with a fun take on mid-century modern too..

Last, but not least… You could definitely still see the ‘Restoration Hardware’ trend still strong,



and the cleverly named ‘Bad Boy’ chair..

Hope you enjoyed the trip!

More from High Point Market April 2014

One thing I love about going to market is seeing the hot designer trends. There was definitely a resurgence of antiques and classics all around us.

Here is a list of what we saw that was on it’s way back and becoming popular.

Golds and brasses are making a major comeback, as seen in the previous market.
My favorite.. this bed by Bernhardt! The gold mixed with gray creates a very sophisticated master suite.

Antique mirrors, mostly seen in chests, sideboards and tables.

Walnut veneers, more emphasis on the natural grain and walnut was used a lot in mid-century design.

Benches featured with dining seating. More stone inlays in occasional and case pieces. Also, some more modern pieces now incorporating concrete.

Rustic diagonal or chevron inlayed wood top tables.

Gray painted furniture, especially in kids collections. Looks especially sweet mixed with pinks.

Gathering heights are becoming more formal in design.

More to come later, stay tuned!
