The Drexel Precedent Vanity Desk and Stool, originating in 1949 by renowned designer Edward Wormley, marks Drexel Furniture's foray into modern design. Celebrated for his contributions to the MoMA’s Good Design exhibits in the 1950s, Wormley's designs are distinguished by their elegant simplicity and functional sophistication. This vanity desk exemplifies his style with its clean lines complemented by soft curves, heavy brass pulls, and distinct geometric drawers. The desk's surface is gracefully finished with a curved lip, adding a refined touch to its sturdy structure.

Accompanied by a stool that can be reupholstered in a fabric of the customer’s choice (fabric to be provided by the customer), this set offers versatility and style. The vanity itself is equipped with two drawers on the right side for storage, while the left side hosts a shelf space enclosed by a door, revealing two nook spaces ideal for additional storage.

This piece, robust in build and rich in history, represents a significant chapter in the evolution of American furniture design, blending timeless style with practical functionality. Perfect for those who cherish both form and function, it will make a distinguished addition to any modern interior.
