This pair of nightstands have been professionally restored. Designed by Stewart MacDougall and Kipp Stewart, this line is absolutely gorgeous and was praised in its time for its combination of modern forms with traditional elements. This pair of nightstands features beautiful walnut grain, suspended legs that taper gently as they up, brass hardware, and excellent quality construction. The single drawer at the bottom features the original miniature version of the brass knob with a faux walnut inlay. This design is among the most collected of American MCM designs.

23.5ʺW × 17.5ʺD × 23ʺH

These pieces have been professionally restored, but like all vintage pieces, do show signs of wear due to prior use.

From the original advertisement:
"Already, Declaration by Drexel has become an American classic . . . persuasive proof of the timelessness of good design. For here is a style that doesn’t depend on contrivance and ornament, but on the honesty of satisfying shapes and the inherent beauty of fine woods . . . richly grained genuine walnut, oiled to a lustrous warmth. Though cleanly contemporary in feeling, Declaration was inspired by our historic heritage . . . the furniture of New York state’s 18th century Shakers. And it’s this subtle blending of modern and antique . . . this union of suave sophistication with straightforward simplicity . . . that gives Declaration such easy versatility. Wouldn’t Declaration make a delightful difference in your home?"

"Brass & Walnut Pulls - Center is a walnut-grained polyester laminate, set in gleaming brass. Created to carry out the beauty of Declaration's striking oiled walnut finish, and blend harmoniously into the furniture."
