History of the Waterfall Chest Style
The waterfall style chest gets its name from the smooth rounded “waterfall” style lid. With smooth curves and a simplistic look, these waterfall chests will add a great dimension to any spot in your house.
The waterfall style furniture was first created by a company in Grand Rapids Michigan around 1930. In the 1930’s it was the most popular style furniture around, and it became the most chic design of its time. Due to its basic, simple design and affordability, waterfall furniture became the most popular furniture option for the common people to use. Although waterfall style furniture was not the most popular style for very long, today it has become one of the most common simplistic vintage styles of furniture you will see.
