Blanket chests are definitely a European import, probably from the times of the renaissance. Some of these chests―well, most of them, actually―seem like they would be most at home in one of those traditional homes of England in a quaint little corner. Their designs are too English, and the high quality woods that are used in building them even today only add to this impression. But that is what adds to the allure of the chests―just put one in your room and your dcor seems to have moved several decades into the past, giving it the retro look.
In the age of retro furniture, blanket chests are making a comeback, but still, it is not to the extent that they were used earlier. Most homes are doing without these for want of space, and because there are so many other options to store their blankets. The settees that are in vogue in small houses are taking care of the added storage space, and there are several people who are putting their blankets in large cabinets too. Add to that, blanket chests are expensive, because they are usually made with the best quality wood.
In your bedroom and living room, you may have side tables. Don't let these go waste. If any of these side tables have a shelf space near the legs, use it to place a basket for storage. You can label the boxes so that you know the contents of the box.
