How To Pick Out A Dresser To Match Your Style

It’s no secret that we’re BIG fans of dressers and buffets of all shapes and sizes (it’s kinda our job!), and we love helping our customers find the perfect piece to fit their personal style. As we search around the midwest for pieces to refurbish, there are always so many possibilities with each piece depending on how our clients want to customize it, and we often find ourselves getting just as excited as our clients as we watch the piece completely transform.

But with so many options for refurnishing your own pieces with us, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to choose what style you want – especially if you’re just starting to decorate your home. And since we’re visual people ourselves (that’s why Pinterest is the best, right?!), we wanted to share a few different decorating styles to help spark your own creativity when it comes to designing a home you love. If you’re in the market for a new bureau or buffet, we want to help you discover the best one for your space (or better yet, we’ll make it perfect for you!)

Bohemian:

We love being inspired by shabby chic bohemian spaces, and we can definitely help you find the perfect dresser for a bohemian space of your own. We’ve worked with Chicago blogger The Fox and She on a few custom projects, including the beautiful dresser above that we painted a deep navy hue with gorgeous geometric pulls. The piece fits her bohemian vibe perfectly paired with her gorgeous oriental rug and light, airy colors to make the room still feel light and bright.

Mid-Century:

Another interior design trend we’ve been loving is the resurgence of mid-century style! The beautiful, natural exposed wood is characteristic of the mid-century dresser style, and we have a variety of refinished pieces that would look beautiful in a mid-century modern home. We love it paired with a bold carpet, Eames style chairs and a pop of green from a fiddle leaf fig tree – it’s basically a Pinterest dream!

Preppy: 

For those who like a more preppy look, we’ve been known for creating gorgeous, lacquered dressers and bureaus that are a preppy home decorators dream! From classic navy to bright reds, we have a variety of gorgeous pieces that will fit perfectly in your space. Chicago blogger Kelly in the City is known for her perfectly preppy style, and we love how she styled our navy dresser with pops of white, green and pretty framed pieces.

Classic:

For those who like a more classic look, we’ve got you covered in that department too. The gorgeous dresser above that we created for Allie’s Lincoln Park home fit in perfectly with her classic aesthetic while refinishing a beautiful, vintage dresser. If bright colors or exposed wood isn’t your cup of tea, we always have some pretty classic pieces in our showroom to work perfectly in your space!

If you can’t make it into our showroom to find the perfect piece of your own, make sure to browse on our website for the latest available dressers and buffets. We promise that if we don’t have the perfect dresser for you, we’ll do our best to create it custom for you (now that’s service, right?)

  • Love the preppy and classic styles. They go hand-in-hand. Very easy to style and they never look dated!
