The root of the beautiful sleigh style of the furniture goes back almost as far as the Greco-Roman era. The sleigh style of furniture derives from the stunning Empire style, which was heavily influenced by visual and decorative arts including architecture.
One aspect of this trend, inspired by beds depicted in ancient Roman art can be seen in sleigh style beds where the curved and sweeping lines from Roman art are replicated in sweeping arcs and lines in the head and footboards. From the bed to other furniture, this delightful style can be seen mirrored in our distinctive sleigh dresser.
Starting at the top, perfectly balanced and flat, this sleigh bed dresser then gently slopes with hand-carved half-convex bevel. Below the stately beveled edges, two hidden drawers out of 8 for extra storage. Wide, spacious handmade dovetail joint drawers with smooth round wooden knobs for ease of opening and closing are perfectly centered.
This is an incredibly stately, attractive sleigh chest of drawers that bring the unmistakable charm and regality of the design to any guest or bedroom. Sure to delight both yourself and those who visit day after day with its sturdy construction and elegant, clean lines.
