This week's feature from The A.T. Stewart Exchange is a Lane Hope Chest. This item is solid cherry, measures 48"W x 21"H x 18 1/2"D and is priced at $250.
It's both attractive and practical. The top lifts up to allow easy storage of bedding, clothing or games plus there is a narrow drawer at the base of the piece. This chest is perfect for the bedroom at the foot of the bed or as a coffee table. There's a nice selection of occasional pillows in silk, velvet and brocade on the piece. The pillows are priced between $12 and $15. All items are available at the time of posting.
