Before the twentieth century, furniture was by and large manufactured as free-standing items as opposed to matching sets. Storage is the other major necessity in a bedroom design. No matter of the bedroom style, storage always plays an important role in our bedroom. Dressers, armoires, chest of drawers, and nightstands are frequently included in matching bedroom sets to meet this need. A basic package usually groups the bed with a dresser and nightstand while the other pieces are available as optional add-ons. Extra nightstands and mirrors are usually offered in the same finish or design to match the set bed and dresser. Occasionally, a company will offer a bedroom set with optional pieces like vanity tables, floor mirrors, blanket chests, benches, or writing tables.
