Not to start off on a dramatic note, but no one in the history of humankind has ever complained about a surplus of bedroom storage. "Unfortunate-looking" bedroom storage is a much more valid complaint, which is why we've turned to the Marketplace for some beautiful vintage highboys to get your bedroom in order (while staying stylish).

LOW

Let these options be proof that you don't need to spend more than $200 to snag a great vintage highboy! While all three choices still have a lot of natural character, they're at a price point where DIY enthusiasts can also feel comfortable testing out some new techniques. And space wise, even the teeniest studio apartment could make the room for one of these beauties. Now all you have to do is pick your style path: traditional detailing or sleek and modern?

MEDIUM

Now these were made to keep all of your clothing in perfect order. While you can't go wrong with just sleek drawers, the second two options have the addition of doors to add some visual interest. Gentle curves, subtle colors and carved detailing all make it immediately evident that you've snagged something that's truly high-quality and hard to replicate. Top these babies with a mirror and catch-all tray, and you have your new favorite place to start your day!

HIGH

When you want something standout that can do the most for your bedroom storage, sometimes you need to pay a little more. The first blonde Art Deco highboy is unlike anything you'll see around today, and design addicts will spot that Broyhill Brasilia model in amazing vintage condition. But as is the case with any "investment" piece, try and let it shine as one of the focal points of your decor, and work the room around it. Trust us, they'll make an impact regardless of what you do.
