Linen Presses and Chests On Chests


LINEN PRESSES are beautiful antiques that have stood the test of time. Originally, they were used to store table linens, clothing and other textiles, but their popularity has continued because they offer exceptional additional storage and compliment the decor nearly any room. They can be found in gorgeous woods and may look like an armoire at first glance. What differentiates a linen press is that it has doors on top and drawers on the bottom.

CHESTS ON CHESTS are high chests of drawers made in two sections and placed one on top of the other; chest-on-chest. Often referred to as highboys or tall chests, these spectacular pieces come in a variety of woods and offer exceptional storage.
