Exploring The Strange Side Of A Dresser – Unusual Designs

We’re all familiar with the classical image of a bedroom dresser. There’s nothing unusual about it. Most dressers look like simple consoles with wide drawers from side to side. But that’s not a characteristic shared by all the designs. Some stand out by breaking the mold, by being different, special and strange in a lot of ways.
