We’ve just picked up a lovely pair of matching vintage wooden chests of drawers.
They were designed by husband & wife partnership, John & Sylvia Reid, for Stag Furniture in the 1950s.
They have a strong mid century modern look with pared back, simple, clean lines.
They appear to be made from a combination of light oak and teak – with two large drawers and a slightly smaller top drawer standing on short, tapered legs.
We really like the subtle handles with their geometric influence. Having lived with the drawers for a couple of days, we noticed how nicely the light and shadow catches them. They’d look great with a background of a bold, mid century wallpaper picking up their geometric form – Minimodern’s Backgammon springs to mind.
They’re quite a useful, compact size; measuring 75cm wide, 70cm tall and 43cm deep.
We’re going to keep them together as a pair – they’ve made it this long as a couple – we’d hate to split them up now. They’ll go into our antiques centre space – or perhaps our eBay shop, We’ll hang fire for a day or so in case any of our readers want first dibs. Drop us a line if they’re just the thing for you.
