Nothing says coastal casual like weathered wood, and Noir’s simple, three-drawer dresser is the epitome of seaside style. Made from natural mahogany, the Lauren dresser is a generous 45 inches wide by 30 inches high and 21.5 inches deep and stands on bun feet. The drawers of this hand-finished piece feature simple round bronze pulls and easily slide open and closed on high-quality gliders. While it’s perfectly suited to a casual style — the drawers practically beg to be filled with swimsuits and seersucker — the Lauren dresser will shine in any room with a casual or soothing scheme.

Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
