These days it's hard to ignore the popularity of the first lady of decorating: Ms. Dorothy Draper, but it's even tougher to shell out the big bucks for her original creations that graced some of the finest hotels and private residences of the 40s.
Now you don't have to go to 1st Dibs to find Dorothy Draper knock-offs...you can check out Kindel's Dorothy Draper Collection instead! Formerly dubbed the Varney & Sons Collection, the elegant yet quirky pieces are an homage to all things Dorothy with the requisite touches of Chinoiserie, sinewy curves and all around glamour. The pieces aren't cheap, but they have a classic sense about them that can add that subtle touch of eclecticism every interior needs.
Here are some of my favourite items from the collection:
Pinwheel Night Table
Channel Back Lounge Chair
Dorotheum Sofa with Flounce
Yumi Cocktail Table
España Bunching Chest
Dorothy Draper's Console and Curio
Mark Round Lamp Table
