This dramatic Dorothy Draper Black lacquer 3 drawer ESPANA chest is EVERYTHING!
O M G! Do you recognize the power of this Dorothy Draper ESPANA chest!? The folks that know me know I NEVER, for the most part, take anything home, but COME ON! This is HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY! Dorothy Draper, was the style icon who reigned as the grand dame of design from 1925-1960. You can’t watch a Jean Harlow or Mae West movie without seeing this chest.

Trivia: All you ‘Sex in The City’ fans. Remember when Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) got a job at Vogue where she worked with editor in chief Enid Frick (Candice Bergen)? Enid was chastising her for comparing men to handbags. All the while, Carrie sat uncomfortable and squirming in her tufted chair. Look stage right and under that 5th avenue Manhattan office window sits TWO Dorothy Draper Black Lacquer 3 Drawer ESPANA Chests. Look around people! MID CENTURY MODERN DESIGN is EVERYWHERE!
Maybe Jay-Z will shout her out in a rap verse.
