The Kitchen Dresser: In Praise of a Furniture Icon

Simon Griffiths

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.

In The Kitchen Dresser, photographer Simon Griffiths captures the beauty and the charm of this iconic piece of furniture that is at once functional, ornamental and deeply heartwarming.
