Add Character To Your Home With A Timeless, 50s Style Dorothy Draper Chest
Timeless furniture pieces outlive the style and design of your home. While there are some pieces you may want to keep “trendy”, such as accessories, big furniture items in a classic style will save you the headaches and cost of constantly updating your home.
Dorothy Draper chests are one of those pieces. Designed in the 1950s, this iconic piece of furniture can add true character to your home and it will never go out of style.
What Is A Dorothy Draper Chest?
Known as the Espana Bunching Chest, this piece of furniture was designed in the 50s by Dorothy Draper. The piece is known for a sleek, modern and glamorous finish. The original piece featured a Cherry frame, gold-leafed designs, pull out drawers, and a signature stamp on the inside of each drawer.
It is important to note that there are a lot of Dorothy Draper chests that aren’t authentic Dorothy Draper designs. These knock-offs have been built over the past few decades and are made from plywood to oak to faux wood. While they are still attractive, they will not come with the same high-quality construction.
