The best cane dressers of 2023

Last year when I was designing our classic pink baby girl nursery, I was on the hunt for the best cane dresser for the space. I wanted something that had cane drawer fronts with brass accents, and fell in love with a gorgeous cane dresser from Serena & Lily.

Alas, it was out of my price range, and I decided to DIY a cane dresser instead. But, when my daughter showed up a couple of weeks early and I still didn’t have a dresser, I ended up going in a different direction with a wicker version, instead. Still, I love the look of a cane dresser and I hope to upgrade the one in her room at sometime in the future.

If you, too are looking for the perfect cane dresser for a nursery or bedroom, I’ve put together a list of the best cane dressers I’ve found (a few that weren’t available when I looked last year). I’ve also included a link to the DIY idea I was thinking about using to help you find a just-right piece.

The best cane dressers

Want to skip straight to the shopping? Take a quick scroll through my favorites:

A luxe cane and white dresser

This is the dresser I loved from Serena & Lily. It’s made of solid woood, with a veneer finish, with inset raffia panels, and I love how the brass handles make it feel more modern and fun. This dresser is definitely one of the pricier picks I found (and ultimately the reason I didn’t choose it for my nursery), BUT it’s a worthwhile splurge piece if it’s in your budget and you want something that’s both high-quality and statement-making.

An affordable white cane dresser

If you love the look of the One King’s Lane dresser but want something a little less expensive, this West Elm white cane dresser is a lovely alterative. The styling is a little more contemporary, but it’s simple enough to be a modern contrast point in a traditional room, too. If you’re looking for a tall and narrow option, this dresser also comes in a 5-drawer version, too.

A budget-friendly faux rattan dresser

This Wayfair dresser has a simple design and a ivory-oak finish that’s a little more muted than white, so it would work in a room with slightly deeper tones, like navy, olive, emerald, or deeper wood tones. At under $750, this is one of the less-expensive full sized cane dressers that I’ve found. The material is MDF and it features faux cane, but it’s a budget-friendly pick that still achieves the cane dresser look.

An all-natural pick

If you’re looking for a can dresser that isn’t white, this Beachcrest Home option is beautiful. It’s made of a rich mango wood, with natural cane, and love how the handles are built into the drawers, which gives it a very organic feel.

If you aren’t sold on the finish, the dresser is also available in both a black stain, and a brown one ( just the outside of the dresser, the cane is still the natural color, which I love). It also comes with an anti-tip kit, which is important if you’re putting it in a nursery or you’re shopping for kid-friendly furniture.

A more affordable all-natural pick

If you like the natural rattan look, this six-drawer Wayfair cane dresser offers similar styling to the option above, but costs about half the price. The dresser is made from pine wood, so it’s still a solid choice.

A small cane dresser from Wayfair

For a budget-friendly pick with just a touch of rattan, this cute cane dresser from Wayfair is perfect. Its small size would make it a good find for a kid’s room, but you could also use a pair of them as stylish (and functional!) nightstands, or as an end table.

A modern option from Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters surprised me as a really great resource for cane dressers! They’ve had a few options in stock in the last year, but this one has to be my favorite thanks to the arched drawer pulls. It’s fun detail that makes the piece feel more contemporary. This dresser is also a good middle-of-the-road pick. It’s made from rubber wood, sengon wood, sengon veneer, and cane rattan, but rings in at only $1299.

A black cane dresser

Here’s another one from Urban Outfitters. This one is a bit sleeker and more transitional because it doesn’t have the midcentury or boho vibes of the dresser above. Again, this one is a good happy medium between price and quality.

One of the best options I’ve found for a cane dresser that’s inexpensive but looks awesome is a DIY version, made from an IKEA dresser. Blogger Macy Gilson upleveled the IKEA Tarva dresser with some simple can webbing. This cane dresser IKEA hack is actually very beginner-friendly.
