This three drawer chest and hutch top were designed by John van Koert for Drexel's "Profile" line of furniture. The bottom chest has three drawers with original metal handles; the top features original sliding glass doors with two adjustable and removable wooden shelves inside. The top angles down slightly for an elegant look.

34” L x 21” D x 72” H 

This piece has been professionally restored, but like all vintage pieces, does show signs of wear due to prior use.

One special thing about the Profile case pieces is their ability to "hug the wall." To quote from an original article:
"This unusual feature not only allows the piece to fit around a wall molding, but looks as though the top rests against the wall. Actually it just misses the wall, so as not to leave marks, and the feet of the piece stand flush with the baseboard."

From the original advertisement:

“John Van Koert, designer of Drexel’s Profile group, has brought fresh enthusiasm as well as a keen professional eye to the furniture field. This extensive group has great poise and although contemporary in spirit, is adaptable and answers the demand for furniture that neither fakes the spirit of a past style nor merely expresses a designer’s whim.
Profile is made of walnut and pecan woods. …The finish is a rich-ripe brown that harmonizes with either lighter or darker finishes. Soft in texture, it provides for easy care, yet protects against scuffs and scars.
There are no abrupt angles in Profile. Tapered legs curve gracefully into the tops of tables and backs of chairs.”
