The Dresser I’m Dying Over

This one definitely ranks in my top 10! I’m dying over my newest find, this vintage Baker dresser that’s the perfect combination of Modern & Asian.

I fell in love with this dresser for 2 reasons: (1) those lines & fabulous feet and, (2) the original (heavy) brass hardware.  I don’t think it would even come close to looking the same without this hardware–there’s really not much to it, but in its classically chic shape, it’s just enough. The dresser reminds me a bit of what this Jonathan Adler dresser…
and this 1st Dibs find…
would look like if they had a baby. The dresser looks like it’s wrapped or embossed with some sort of finish, but I’m not quite sure what to call it. If any of you know what it is, please drop me a line because I’ve never before run across anything like it! I did a bit of research and found this coffee table from Pieces that looks like it’s from the same line because of that rare (embossed??) finish.
I’m desperately in need of dresser for my bedroom so the plan, at least for now, is to use this piece for storage and as a console for my tv. My goal is to design it using 90% vintage/secondhand finds and slowly but surely, my plan is coming together.  So excited about this score.

    It’s gorgeous. I love Baker furniture. We had a Baker store here before the economy shifted. I made many wish lists in that place.

    What a great find! I was in Hilton Head recently and I saw a brass dresser(smaller) with the same brass hardware and same feet in black! I wish I could take it home. You should drive there and get it! 🙂

    @lisa: i didn’t get your email, but will drop you a line. if i don’t respond, it’s probably because i inadvertently forgot or just didn’t receive it.

    You all are apart of my group of folks who REALLY appreciate a beautiful piece of furniture–thanks for your comments! 🙂

    Love it, Dayka! I’m on the hunt for something similar to put in my oldest daughter’s bedroom. What a find!

    BTW, where did you find it?
