Chiffoniers in solid wood

How many drawers for a Chiffonier ? 

Chiffonier in solid wood

Chiffoniers and semainiers (chiffoniers with 6-7 drawers) are pieces of furniture with drawers used mainly for storage in the bedroom, but also practical in an office or living room. This type of furniture appeared during the Regency then Louis XV period and remains current, praised and used for its practicality. It does not take up space, its footprint is very small.

Chiffoniers include all furniture with drawers that are taller than they are wide, regardless of the number of drawers and the shapes they take. The semainiers originally had 7 identical drawers and each drawer was theoretically used for a specific day of the week. Narrow furniture with many (5, 6 or 7..) rectangular drawers, regardless of the use of each drawer, is commonly referred to today as a semainier.
