Kent Coffey The Signet Triple Low Dresser 9 Drawers
Creator: Kent Coffey
Period: Mid Century Modern
Place of Origin: USA
Materials: Solid Mahogany, Mahogany Veneer, Solid Wood Core, Brass Pulls and Handles
Wear: Excellent, a slight sliver of solid wood missing from the left hand edge of a left-center drawer. Two areas pointed out for some light scuffs from gentle, age-appropriate use. See photos for details.
Reason why we love it, design details:
Our number one favorite detail of this piece is the tapered, nearly flat lip (or skirt?) that runs along the bottom of the piece, like a definitive, bold line underlining all the other design aspects of the piece.
Center drawers are highlighted with woodgrain inlaid in a chevron pattern.
And it wouldn’t be Kent Coffey with some vertical lines, which along with the chevron is seen in the left and right edges that are beveled.
The edges of the center drawers are also beveled inward to creating a dramatic shadow onto the neighboring left and right drawer fronts.
And of course, the cherries on top are the brass pulls, in particular the trumpet pulls topping the center of each center drawer.
The top, not to be left out, has two vertical registers running perpendicular to the dominating left-right wood grain, creating a pleasant triptych effect.
Drawers: Wooden runners. Dovetail drawers. Clean interiors as detailed in photos.
Overall Measurements: 63W x 20D x 30.75H
