Our Favorite Mid-Century Modern Dressers
In 2021, sourcing beautiful, mid-century modern furniture that will stand the test of time is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It may seem like there’s plenty to choose from, but there are a lot of cheap, poorly made attempts at recreating the popular style. You have to go digging in order to find something truly right. Luckily, the renewed interest in the mid-century modern aesthetic means that furniture companies are producing their own takes on traditional designs—and that people are dusting off authentic, vintage furniture to sell. From Scandinavian design to Hollywood Regency, it's possible to find something unique and beautiful if you just look hard enough. Don’t want to put in the effort? Nest Casa has made it easy.
