Waterfall Chests and Trunks

Monday, June 20th, 2011

A waterfront chest describes the rounded lid of the chest which looks as though it is cascading over the top so that when the chest is viewed from side on it resembles a D-shape. These chests are often a nice solid looking storage unit with the rounded top softening the appearance with the rounded edges.

These chests make wonderful storage boxes for the bedroom or as decorative centrepieces in the lounge or living room as attractive looking coffee tables. It is possible to pick up an antique waterfall chest for very reasonable prices, particularly if you find one that has sustained a little bit of wear and tear damage.

Waterfall chests were manufactured by all of the major furniture companies that specialised in producing quality wooden chests and boxes. The style was a very popular one with travellers and many of these chests were once used as the primary travelling trunks of the wealthy.

It is quite common to find these chests or trunks made with reinforcing metal bands to help them withstand the bumps and knocks that are likely to occur on long voyages and overland trips.

You will also be able to find a range of beautiful and decorative chests on the Roos cedar chests, Lane cedar chests and even the wooden treasure chests pages.
