When I die and go to heaven, I want this to be my bedroom set: 1970s vintage Drexel “Whimsy”. Two dressers — “campaign” style — are for sale RIGHT NOW on ebay:
Aren’t they something?
Orange has been my favorite color since I began decorating my first bedroom, when I was a pre-teen in 1971. My bedroom pretty much looked like these dressers, but without these dressers.
I don’t know much about this line, but here is what seller Modigliani’s in Miami — who also identifies them as “Drexel Whimsy” says:

CHEST ARE IN ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH MINOR CHIPPING TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF TALL CHEST. THESE ARE GREAT DECORATOR ITEMS AND DATE FROM THE EARLY 70’S POSSIBLY LATE 60’S.MAKE US A FAIR OFFER. CHEST ARE BEING SOLD. AS IS IN FOUND CONDITION WITH MINOR FLAWS.
I have taken to saying that, “All the best stuff’s in St. Louis.” But for furniture, Southern Florida is a very close second. There was a huge migration of retirees to the area in the 1960s … and when they landed, they got their groove right on.
