For most people, buying a chest of drawers can be a pretty important choice. Plastic furniture is cheap, but generally looks pretty bad. Fortunately, buying a solid pine chest of drawers doesn’t have to cost too much, and it will look very nice for most decors and rooms. Although most people consider pine to be below oak, maple, etc., there are some who prefer pine for its unpretentiousness and simplicity. One of my personal favorites in terms of furniture styles makes extensive use of pine, and that style is Mexican (also known as Southwestern or New Mexican).
This tradition of woodworking accounts for the generally weaker structure of pine by using thicker pieces of it in making furniture, making for a style that is distinctive for especially solid looking furniture. A pine chest of drawers done in this style will have presence without appearing bloated or excessively heavy, rather the overall composition usually looks quite balanced.
Another style commonly done in pine is the rustic style. Many charming pine dressers are done in this style, and this furniture can be a real joy to have in the home. Pretty often people who solid wood flooring select a real wood style for the rest of your piece of furniture.
Whether you are thinking about purchasing a solid pine chest of drawers, walnut sideboard or a wicker chest of drawers always bear in mind the rest of an individual’s homes interior design.
