Drexel Profile

The Drexel Profile furniture collection was designed by John Van Koert, and it was in production from 1955 to 1961. Van Koert started out as a jewelry designer for Harry Winston after WWII and later branched into industrial design. He also is well known for designing silver for Towle, particularly the Contour design; his particular attention to the drawer pulls and other hardware on Profile pieces is noted in the catalog. Thanks to Femme1 for obtaining this information – including this complete 1960 catalog, courtesy of the excellent customer service at Drexel.  Femme1 owns the walnut dining table and chairs #K40, and the round extension table, with #K62, the side chairs.

    The Drexel folks are so nice! My parents bought several pieces from their “Casa del Sol” collection in the late 1950s, and we’re still using them today. I contacted the company to ask what other pieces were in that particular line, and they scanned an original 26 page catalog and sent it to me in a .pdf file. Now, comes the fun part of tracking down other pieces for my collection!

    I have the “step” tables and a “corner” table. I’m wanting a cocktail/coffee table, but the search has been fruitless thus far. I recently have seen other items that are NOT in the PDF above, one particular one I saw on Etsy recently is a surfboard coffee table that is two pieces and can become end tables. really cool.
