This Drexel "Profile" "pier chest" has been professionally restored. It features three drawers with silver-plated handles, gentle curves, and the elegant design of all Profile pieces. Designed by John van Koert. It is the height of the low dressers or could alternatively be used as a nightstand.

16” L x 21” D x 32” H

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."

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

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.”
