Drexel Declaration furniture is so beautiful. It definitely is one of my favorites, and I think it is still “around” at decent prices. This Kipp Stewart Drexel Declaration bench or settee, on craigslist in Washington, D.C. / Northern Virginia has such lovely lines.
To me, what this furniture line does so well is to bridge the colonial – modern divide. The modernism is not harsh, the early American is not precious. For example, this lister calls this “Danish Modern.” But, I think there is just as much Shaker in this bench. Benches like this (and there are many other lovely designs from other manufacturers, too) are perfect for a foyer, if you have the room.
