I often come across basic furniture – a plain dresser or an unadorned headboard – that could easily be dressed up with a coat or two of paint. But I never really considered turning my dresser into a focal point until I saw this chevron-patterned dresser inspired by Design Star contestant Rachel Kate’s white room design. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn used various bold hues of the season, like grape, lavender and hot pink, to add visual balance to the drawer fronts in a daring chevron pattern.
I love the look of the dressers as separate pieces, or pushed together to create one extra-large piece of furniture, like this double dresser/TV-stand setup below.
