Vintage, New and Antique Blanket Chests

Antique and vintage blanket chests go by many names. You may have heard them called hope chests, dowry chests or Lane cedar chests, with the latter referring to the now-famous case pieces manufactured by the Lane Furniture company.

No matter the name, these were initially large crude wooden boxes with hinged lids where you stowed away your blankets, household linens and possibly some valuables. Everyone can always use a bit more storage in our bedrooms or guest bedrooms, and blanket chests can be a stylish solution to help you stay organized, particularly if you’re short on closet space.

Blanket storage trunks are still typically equipped with hinges on their lids for easy access to their large storage capacity. They’re often rectangular pieces, but in the hands of today’s furniture designers, contemporary blanket chests take on many shapes and are made of varying materials. Most antique blanket chests are made out of wood, from rich mahogany to oak.

Find a wide range of antique, new and vintage blanket chests available for sale on 1stDibs.
