When you are decorating a traditional style house that you are going to live in for a long time, you can have a case of sticker shock, when you go shopping for solid wood furniture, particularly for bedroom and dining room sets. Which stores are the right sources for your project has to do with which brand name manufacturers they are contracted with and the style, quality and price points of those sources. In the last few decades the American South Carolina furniture manufacturers priced themselves out of the mainstream market, and in came the Asian importers with dressers that were lesser priced and are made from pine wood body interiors with spray finished particle board fronts and tops. To further cut costs these lesser priced dressers are narrower in depth than in the past, and can be 18″ deep or less, and the night tables are ridiculously skinny at 15″ square.
There are a few manufacturers now who make traditional style solid wood dresser sets that look good, are ample dimensions, and at not outrageous prices. You are looking at Furniture of America dresser sets, which are sold at Dot & Bo, and are primarily solid wood with classical detailing, with dressers and chest averaging $700 to $900 each including shipping. Many have a matching hotel style media chest with drawers below and a niche at the top for a DVD player, and are the right height at 30″ to be able to comfortably see the TV while lying in bed.
The other manufacturer brand name to follow is Coaster, which is sold at Home Square, and who makes lower priced furniture in all categories, and these are nice looking items without a fancy price tag. Some of the dressers are traditional style in solid wood, and some are laminate wood mix.
Other accessories you may need for your traditional style bedroom are comforter sets in traditional damasks in jewel tones, which you will find in the cotton bedding section of BeddingInn, and the Croscill and JQueen lines at Macy’s bed and bath department icon with matching drapes. Drapes can also be found in all colors at Half Price Drapes, and roman shades at Blind Savericon. You can buy Norwall wallpaper at a discount at the Gifted Parrot. Oriental Weavers area rugs at Home Square. And pairs of table lamps from the Regency Hill brand at Lamps Plus icon, and Lamps Plus is also a great source for mirrored dressers. The Skyline brand at Home Square is an outstanding source for all colors of upholstered headboards.
