Dressers were first created in England in the 16th century; they are quite similar to sideboards which were a common feature in dining rooms of the time. Dressers were actually very famous during the Edwardian Era, often seen in dining rooms and kitchens, also known as a “lowboy”, or simply a “dressing table”.
In contemporary homes, a good-looking antique dresser can be extremely versatile piece of furniture which can be put to a number of different uses in the home. Whilst they can provide a great addition to the kitchen or dining room – their traditional place - dressers can also play their part elsewhere. For example, in a bedroom, they can be used as your ‘vanity’ with the neat addition of mirrors fitted to the backs of the dresser.
