Blanket Chests

The old blanket chest still holds its own as a useful piece of furniture.

Even though bed blankets have been ousted by the duvet, the old blanket chest still holds its own as a useful piece of furniture. My own is in waxed pine. It was bought for a fiver many years ago and sits nicely outside the bathroom packed with fresh towels. Depending on the size of the room, blankets chests are often more useful outside the bedroom, agrees Interior designer Ruth Kennelly. “They can come in to their own as coffee tables, toy boxes, in a hallway with a lamp on top of on a landing return as a window seat”.
