Draper Moment

We had a major Dorothy Draper moment yesterday.  It seemed like everywhere we looked, there was the influence of the famous American 20th century decorator.

The famous dresser designed by Draper for Heritage, circa 1940

We’re so into this dresser and never get sick of seeing it (a rare quality for us!).  Found via &foundfurnishings, an adorable vintage and antique furniture boutique (and side note, owned by a great friend of ours).

Some more Draper we’re loving…

Scalloped is IN! Pair of amazing pedestal tables with crenelated apron; found at Ellen Ward Scarborough Antiques, Stamford, CT

Ruched back upholstery would be amazing in a print fabric! An occasional chair in the style of Draper, circa 1940s; found via Tom Gibbs Studio, Boston

Armchairs from Draper designed Greenbrier Hotel, circa 1950s; found via Dragonette Ltd., LA

Reproduction Dorothy Draper ceiling light fixture, originally designed for the Metropolitan Museum; found via Urban Electric Co.
