Russel Wright, 515 Stardust solid maple dresser
Russel Wright, 515 Stardust solid maple dresser.
“An independent thinker, not a follower of the newest trends, RW helped create the concept of the industrial designer, an American phenomenon that emerged during the 1920s.” “Russel Wright first began at the age of 30 to design 60 pieces of furniture for Heywood-Wakefield Furniture Company. These items were sold at Bloomingdale`s and were marketed with rugs, curtains, lamps and accessories all designed by Russel Wright. This was 1934 and marked the first offering of coordinated mass produced home furnishings ever created by 1 designer.”
This solid maple vintage piece has been updated from its original “Star Dust” finish with a subtle stain progression to the drawers and a deep “Krimson Lake Blue” accent.
