Brown furniture is back. People want warmth and individuality back in their houses. As such, the kitchen dresser is having a renaissance. These beautiful pieces are overtaking clean-lined kitchens to create more original spaces, alive with personality and rich in history. Made from Welsh oak or elm, Tasmanian Huon pine or reclaimed timber, the humble dresser - originally built for food preparation and storage - has become the treasured centrepiece of many a home. The art of the dresser is often in the collection it holds: vintage china, Staffordshire figures, majolica, pewter, blue-and-white transfer ware, breadboards, family treasures, the old and the everyday.
