The Drexel Plus One bedroom furniture suite is the most fabulous bedroom set ever made – no doubt about it. And you can Buy It Now, for $485. Based on St. Petersburg, Florida — yay to the sellers, Smugglers Cove Vintage. And:

    I spotted this exact set (plus the “Good Nite” nightstand, chest of drawers, and flower mirror) on Saturday in an antique store on Southland Drive in Lexington, Ky. Didn’t note the price.

    1. My parents purchased this set for me back in the 70’s. I had the “goodnight” nightstands, a double “bed” headboard, plus a “Telephone” phone booth with cushy vinyl seat for those long land line teen calls that tied up the parent’s phone for hours. I also had a big desk/vanity/dresser/shelves combo unit that took up 10 feet of wall. The goodnight stands had a flower base. All sitting pretty on green shag. Very groovy baby.

    I’m looking for a bedroom set – circa 50s-60’s to replace my 90’s Broyhill Fontana set (who doesn’t have this set? It’s the set on Everybody Loves Raymond).
    That set is COOL – but too Cool for my taste. Thanks for sharing!

      Anne — do you still have any of the pieces you mentioned? I’d love to hear about them if you do! 🙂

      Take care,

      I will drive there ASAP if they still have them — can you please give me a shop name or phone number? I’m trying to piece this set together for my daughters and this would help tremendously!!

      Thanks & take care,

        Sheila, that was on ebay. The sellers are identified in the story, though, with a hotlink. You can reach out to them that way, directly. Good luck.

          Pam, I think Sheila was referring to the set spotted in Lexington KY by me on 9/6/2011 and by Beth on 8/27/2012. They have sold some of the pieces or moved them out of the showroom — in any case, some of the ones I saw in 2011 were no longer there a month ago or so. The store is The Antique Store of Lexington, 436 Southland Dr Lexington, KY 40503. (859) 373-0802. Good luck!

            1. Sheila Massingill says:

              Yes — thank you, Brian… that was exactly what I was looking for. I gave the owner a call and her pieces are ALL still available… woohoo!! Now to decide if we can swing the dent in the budget and a 9-hour drive to get them since we’re in NC. (And if Anne still has the pieces she mentioned above and I actually piece this whole bedroom suite together like I’ve dreamed of for a couple years now, I’m going to owe this blog BIGTIME!) 🙂

              Thanks again,

    Odd request I know but I am looking for a circa early 70s “teen” bedroom set like the one my friend owned and don’t know the brand. Bed, desk and bed table were a light yellow and carved features were “accented” with touches of very bright, almost psychedelic brushes or green and orange. Who made this/where can I buy. Thanks.

    The Plus One” suite by Drexel was designed by the readers of “Seventeen Magazine”. The publication asked for their input and “Plus One” was created.

    1. pam kueber says:

      Hi Cat, I see you are trying to sell you set. No buying/selling on the main blog, or it becomes chaos. I am sure that if you post for sale on craigslist or ebay you will find appreciative buyers. Good luck!

    I just scored several pieces of this set. Two dressers, headboard, night stand, lighted vanity, telephone booth, ottoman, desk, butterfly table, 4 pedestal stools, and record cabinet. Any new updates on these pieces? Doesn’t seem to be much out there on the web. I can’t even find my version of the dressers. Pumped to start restoring it!
