Mule Chests Have History!
A Mule Chest offers versatile storage options, and is even designed with spaces to hang clothes. They are most commonly sought out by those with limited closet space.
The first documented mention of the Chifforobe came in the early 1900s in a Sears and Roebuck Catalog; it has been said, however, that Mule Chests and Chifforobes originated in medieval Europe only in the homes of nobility. Today, Mule Chests and Chifforobes are featured in homes across the US and Europe; however, they tend to be most prevalent and popular in the Southern regions of the US.
Similar to an armoire, Mule Chests are simply built bigger to offer more options to its user. Mule Chests originated in the south, and typically still carry some southern elegance in their design. They have the perfect charm for a cottage or cabin, but believe it or not, they are most commonly used to provide organization and storage to those living in apartments and town houses!
At DutchCrafters, we carry a wide array of Mule Chests.
We have bigger Mule Chests or smaller Mule Chests, traditional or modern Mule Chests, oak wood and maple wood Mule chests, and more ... so many different styles and varieties the only way to see them all is jump right in! But all our Mule Chests do have one thing in common, superior hardwood Amish hand-craftsmanship.
Each Mule Chest on DutchCratfers is built to order. This allows our customers to make design changes before the build begins, so that their exact needs are met. Furthermore, it provides our customers with a Chest that is truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
