Cedar Hope Chests
A Hope Chest in the United States, also referred to as a Blanket Chest, Glory Box, or Trousseau, is a beautiful hardwood storage piece that has a long history in the furniture world. 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, the legacy carries on, offering a gift solution that will leave a lasting impression. Shop our beautifully handmade Amish Hope Chests, Blanket Chests, Cedar Chests, and Trunks and give the perfect wedding gift, grad gift or special place to store your favorite items.
Common Uses of Hope Chests Today
Today, cedar hope chests are commonly used at bed ends, more often than not to store sheets, linens, and blankets. They are a fine complement to almost any bedroom furniture set and 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 - providing a piece that can be used into adulthood and passed down from generation to generation.
Why Cedar Wood?
A cedar hope chest can also be a convenient way to store your winter clothing or shoes while providing a beautiful, lively scent to anything in the chest - with the natural cedar wood offering moisture management and natural insect repellent that will keep everything in tip-top shape. Explore the wonderful possibilities of incorporating a handcrafted Amish cedar chest into your decor. Watch our Cedar wood video for more information on this unique wood.
