Having lived with rickety bedroom dressers since grad school, these clients (whose sons are now in college) were ready to enter the world of capacious, well made cabinetry. Ready for smooth-gliding, full-extension drawer hardware. Ready for soft-close wardrobe doors. And definitely ready for an aesthetic upgrade.
Inspired by the work of Chicago artist Edgar Miller, this pair of dressers and the companion wardrobe reflect the clients’ interest in old maps, German literature, and African art.
The dresser at the center of this arrangement features stylized plants and animals roughly in the style of work by 19th-century scientist and artist Ernst Haeckel.
Space below each piece is designed for shoe storage.
