Readers still looking for major furniture sets like dining rooms and bedrooms should remember to keep your eyes – and heart – open for traditional furniture from the postwar era. This stuff is far less “popular” today than “modern” sets — but how can you linger over the lines of this 1955 Drexel Peasant Provincial and not agree how beautiful it truly is? I love the stain on this wood as well. And – you will be able to buy it for a song! (eBay photos – listing come and gone.)
If you have a Cape or colonial-ranch, all the more reason to consider traditional-style furniture, which is sympathetic to the lines of your home. With this particular set, I see a tone-on-tone small print wallpaper by Thibaut to go-with. But, you can take this set any number of directions – it is very versatile.
