1960s-drexel-mod-bedroom-setThanks to Puddletown aka Cheryl for spotting this 60s flower-power Peter Max-style Drexel bedroom set on Craigslist.

A flickr friend has identifed this AWESOME bedroom furniture as Drexel Heritage ‘Plus One’ circa 1970. She has a catalog, which said that Drexel interviewed girls via SEVENTEEN magazine to design the line.

    Several pieces from a set exactly like this were still available at a store on Southland Drive in Lexington KY as of 4/28/2012.

    Hi,
    I have a Drexel yellow bedroom set that I’m going to put up for sale in Phoenix, AZ. It has 6 drawer dresser, two night stands with flower base, round mirror shaped like the night stand base, double headboard that says Bed and a Telephone booth.

    I am currently in search of this bedroom set! If anyone has any items for sale or has seen anything at a store I would so much appreciate a reply! I have recently purchased the green telephone booth, and the green/yellow hutch shelf with drawers as well as the 6 drawer lowboy dresser from somebody off Craigslist in Minneapolis. I would really love to have as many pieces as I can find! So again if anyone sees anything for sale I would so much appreciate a reply, thanks!

      Lydia.. I have a dresser, mirror, desk, nightstand, chair for sale… all mostly yellow. I might still have a copy of the booklet that came with it as well. Hopefully this gets to you as I already posted this a few weeks ago.
      thanks.

        Kevin, if it’s still for sale what website is it on? I search on Craigslist usually a few times a week but I haven’t seen anything.
