As you saw in my last post, I’m slowly sprucing up my master bedroom. When my Hubby and I first moved into our lake house, almost two years ago, our master bedroom had one maple dresser, on loan from my Mom (plus our vintage Mingo chair and mint side table):
After my Mom and I sewed a set of back tab curtains in a bold, teal print (which I’ve recently swapped out for a different set), I shuffled some furniture and replaced the mint chair with a simpler black organic chair.
I am so grateful to my Mom for loaning us a dresser because when we downsized from our three bedroom townhouse to our two bedroom lake house, we lost a lot of closet space and found ourselves needing a dresser for the first time! I immediately started the quest for a replacement and I was hoping to find a vintage pair of dressers. Unfortunately, everything I found was too small, too large, too old, too rickety, or too expensive. I decided to check out Leon’s Furniture and was surprised by how many really stylish dressers I found – some of which are even made in Canada! I ended up finding two styles that appealed to my mid-century modern aesthetic: the (now discontinued) cherry veneered Noma and the walnut veneered Roxy.
Choosing between the two was agony, but in the end I loved the mid-century feel of the Noma (although the beautiful walnut grain of the Roxy was calling my name). Look at the gorgeous, curvy drawers:
The quality of these dressers is fabulous: the drawers slide smoothly and both pieces feel really substantial and sturdy. I love the thoughtful details like the metal caps on the feet.
My bedroom is looking so much more pulled together now! I like the look of the taller chest with the long dresser because it maximizes the storage in my small bedroom, but still provides a place to display my Soviet-eta Hungarian posters. The dark stain on the dressers pairs beautifully with our black DIY welded headboard.You’ve already caught a sneak peek at the next big change: new DIY back tab curtains in a beautiful green tweed.Thanks for reading!
