Drexel Heritage Accent Chairs


Crave Mid-Century style with a classical twist?—Drexel Heritage chairs might just be your calling card. Founded in 1903, North Carolina-based Drexel was known for many years as Drexel Enterprises before becoming Drexel Heritage in 1968. Around the same time, the company hit its stylistic stride, becoming known for its modernist pieces that incorporated subtle traditional influences. Among the brand’s most popular offerings today are Drexel wingback chairs. Ideal for anyone who’s looking for a traditional wingback chair that’s not a legtimiate antique, Drexel Heritage wingback chairs can be sourced in an array of styles and fabrics. Look for Drexel wingbacks with ball-and-claw feet as well as ones with more pared-down Queen Anne-style legs. The majority of Drexel Heritage wingbacks assume their modernity from their upholstery fabrics. Drexel favored vibrant prints, sometimes with a hint of irreverence, and furniture restorers have continued the tradition, electing to outfit them in fun, eye-catching fabrics. If you favor something more modern than a wingback, consider Drexel chairs that were designed by eminent designers like Edward Wormley and Kipp Stewart who famously partnered with the brand throughout the 1950s and 60s. Both designed illustrious barrel-back style chairs for the brand among numerous other offerings. Another classic are Drexel Parsons chairs. Milo Baughman teed up a classic upholstered Parsons chair for the brand, and today it’s possible to find authentic Milo Baughman-designed versions as well as the brand’s later solo iterations of the chair.
