Looking to give burl a whirl? There’s no better place to start than a burl wood dresser. Burl, a decorative wood with a ripple-like appearance, is derived from an abnormal burl growth on a tree. Once put into play with furniture, burl wood has an unmatched appearance, which has made it a go-to for centuries. Burl wood chests are especially sought-after thanks to their expansive fronts that put burl wood’s dramatic wood grain on full display.

From Neoclassical to Postmodern

Burl wood chests and dressers span the stylistic spectrum, making it easy to find one that suits your style to a tee. Look for a Neoclassical or Bierdermeir burl wood chests of drawers if you’re on the hunt for something to sync with antiques (or even Italian Modernist furniture—a common interior designer hybrid). Burl wood bombe chests are also readily available. Use one to make a dramatic statement in a petite entryway. Modernists may want to draft burl chests from makers like Milo Baughman and Pace to make a strikingly modern statement. While those looking to bridge an antique aesthetic with a modern one may want to look to the Mid-Century burl chests from brands like Henredon and Baker Furniture.

Burl wood dressers vary greatly in appearance depending on what kind of wood they’re constructed of. Look for mahogany burl dressers, walnut burl dressers, and more here on Chairish. Don’t forget to check out patchwork burl dressers, as well. Especially if you love the visual complexity of burl wood, patchwork dressers can heighten the effect tenfold.
