In this post: Looking for a French dresser with great style at a reasonable price? This shopping guide offers where to buy an affordable French chest of drawers.⇒
Are you romanced by furniture?
Sometimes I wonder if I’m strange.
But I do look at pieces of furniture and want to buy them “just because”. I love French decorative details and gorgeous wood patina. Distressed paint, sinewy curves, gilt trim and wonderful hardware – sign me up!
Today’s shopping guide was inspired by a few design projects I’ve been working on for clients. I already own a few of these chests, but I’d love to get a couple more. What room couldn’t benefit from a charming French dresser?
While I absolutely love authentic vintage pieces, the great news is there are many affordable reproduction options available, as well. Below you will find a variety of styles, from smaller 2 drawer pieces that could fit into a tight corner to taller chests that provide ample storage.
There are bombe chests, painted accent dressers, glazed pieces, aged finishes, 3 drawer options, as well as 5 drawer ones too. There are Swedish Gustavian looks, in addition to Louis Phillipe style, plus rustic commodes, and distressed or reclaimed woods.
When I first put this post together, the market was quite different, so prices have increased some. What one person perceives as affordable, others do not, so I did my best to include as many low priced options as I could find.
I kept as many pieces as possible in the 3 digit range, but particularly for the larger pieces there are a few over $1000. Please remember, for some people, a $1500 dresser is still more affordable than a $5000 antique. At the same time, at this writing, there are lots of pieces included that are as low as a few hundred dollars!
Note: I update the post from time to time, trying to keep the links fresh, but stores run out of stock faster than I can update my posts. So if you find some dead links, please know they will be updated soon, and you’re welcome to alert me as I might be able to help find something you are looking for.
Take your time and scroll through them all – there are plenty of options here to consider. Then let’s see if you can guess which one I’ve got my eye on next! Happy shopping!!
