|Some things never go
out of style. Take cottage furniture for example. Itís as popular
today as it was in the early 1900s when it was first introduced in
New England homes. The painted dresser you see here is a good example
of what makes this style of furniture so well-liked.
To create a casual look, itís designed with beadboard panels on the
sides and doors, as well as more elegant details like applied moldings
wrapped around the top and bottom ó two hallmarks of the cottage style.
Thatís why youíre just as likely to find a dresser like this in a
formal mansion as you are in an offbeat, ocean-front getaway.
