These Amish made hardwood chests are sure to last the test of time. Everything you see here was handcrafted in Lancaster County, PA just miles from our store. The hope chest is a long standing tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Dating as far back as the 15th century, cedar chests were used to collect items such as clothing, towels, bed linens, household linens, quilts and occasionally dish wares, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life. The hope chest legacy provides a link to the past, present and future, all within its depths. LuxWood Home Accents celebrates the value of the hope chest and is honored to bring you many different styles of chests in a variety of woods and finishes. Take a moment to explore our catalog! We believe you will find one that you will come to treasure for the years to come!
