ABOUT

Wow! we were extremely happy when we came across this gorgeous mid-century modern eight-drawer dresser or credenza (along with several other matching pieces from the same collection so check our other listings)! It is by Franklin Shockey Furniture and from their Sculpted Pine Collection. Comprised of SOLID knotty pine! No veneers at all on this piece and it has all the natural character of the natural wood knot holes and all. This line of furniture by Franklin Shockey is a pleasant combination of the sleek undulating lines of mid-century modern mixed with the rustic pine of Dude Ranch or Adirondack furniture. Its arched legs and softly rounded edges have some similarities to Heywood Wakefield’s solid maple mid-century modern pieces as does its smooth beautiful finish. This chest with its smoothly carved bowtie drawer fronts and slender brass hardware offers plenty of convenient storage and will look magnificent wherever you use it!

The Franklin Shockey Furniture Company of Lexington N.C. has a unique story. Franklin Shockey owned a financial investment firm in NYC. Sometime in 1940 he travelled south with his business partner, George Ennis, to purchase plywood for a small wooden item Mr. Shockey had invented. He fell in love with the beautiful solid woods he found there, purchased a factory, and began making his solid wood furniture. The furniture company became very successful operating into the 1960s. Although the furniture business was successful Mr. Shockey never stopped being involved with his investment firm. In 1980 Franklin Shockey passed at the age of 80.

We know you will love this cabinet as we do whether you use it as a dresser or a credenza. Make it yours!

the details

Handsome mid-century modern low double dresser or credenza by Franklin Shockey Furniture from their Sculpted Pine Collection. In wonderful vintage condition with a beautiful age patina. We have not refinished this piece but restored with some touch up to the natural dents and dings due to age and use and applied a new coat of polyurethane for durability. We allowed the beautiful age patina and that of the knotty pine to shine. Please see photos. Circa 1950s.
