Originally, Hope Chests were used to collect items of clothing or household linen by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life. The presentation of a Hope Chest was seen as a tradition coming-of-age rite in the 1950's, and typically viewed as the first step on the road to marriage.
Today Hope chests are commonly used at bed ends, more often than not to store sheets, linens and blankets. They are a fine compliment to almost any bedroom furniture set. Believe it or not, they are also commonly used as alternatives to
cheap plastic toy chests by parents seeking to maintain charm and grace in their living room or playrooms.
