Dressers are so versatile. They’re undoubtedly good when it comes to storage and using day in, day out. But, I still love to use them in the traditional way – as a display piece.
For me, the best place for this is in a dining room. This is where I’d use a dresser to keep special pieces for supper parties or occasionware like ice buckets, decanters, whisky tumblers and cocktail-making bits and pieces.
I get real joy walking past and seeing everything kept together safe and sound. I know some people say dressers like this can feel a bit precious, but for me, it doesn’t feel untouchable, but more an exciting prospect of special occasions to come.
