Blanket chests are one of the earliest forms of household storage chests. Families needed some place to store blankets and bedding and a wood box of suitable size worked well. some chests had removable or sliding trays. Very often the chest was made of local woods and the styles varied considerably. They were usually fairly large chests. These chests now find their way into family and living rooms as focal point pieces of furniture. They are still functional with plenty of storage space!
