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. 

Editor's Picks

Brass handles with faux leather adorn this dresser—the face of which is covered in hand-applied gold leaf. Crimped drawers in walnut wood give this piece an elegant texture.

This stately dresser—originally introduced in 1954 and designed by Paul McCobb—is a twist on classic styles. Brass crossbars add timeless detail.

True Hollywood Regency dressers are hard to come by. This professionally refinished 1960s original is gorgeous. With the original brass pulls, it’s an eye-catching piece in a bold, candy apple red.

Fans of mixed wood tones will fall in love with the birch body and rosewood accents of this dresser: an antique Paul McCobb for Perimeter Group.

This six-drawer dresser may be made in the modern age, but it perfectly integrates the best parts of Hollywood Regency style into its design. Lucite and brass accents make it a mid-century modern dream.

With well placed curves and bleached oak wood, this dresser looks right out of a Space Age home. It’s a piece that blends easily, while still being striking in its own way.

The first thing you’ll notice about this Tommi Parzinger original is its scalloped paneling. The second? The parchment-over-wood effect on the exterior.

Decorative slats give the front of this dresser motion. Meanwhile, an oak foundation and dowel-shaped legs lend a sense of informality to the piece. 

An icy teal pair of Eastern-inspired chests aren’t the easiest item to seamlessly integrate into any given home—but they could be worth building a room around.

A combination of ebony-cerused oak and brass accents makes this refinished John Stuart dresser a must-have for anyone who loves 1950s, “big city” style.

Handwoven caning embellishes the face of this tall dresser, giving off island vibes even when vacation is far away. 

A wash that’s dark (but not too dark) gives this five-drawer dresser a versatile look. Top-grain leather pulls add a rugged sophistication.

This white oak credenza features protruding, semi-circle designs instead of knobs. Because, sometimes the best innovations come from eschewing tradition.

This Gio Ponti for Singer & Sons piece uses its pulls to create a staircase design that is stunning in its simplicity. Built in 1955, this modernist dresser is truly breathtaking.

The Grosfeld House dressers are beautiful on their own. But the most attractive component of this piece lies in its pulls, which were created by the legendary artist and designer Pepe Mendoza.

These Henredon dressers were part of Dorothy Draper’s 1960s Viennese Collection for the brand. They ensure—with colors of bubblegum pink and gold—that they will make a splash in any room.

 

Geometric design makes this walnut dresser come alive. With 12 drawers, it’s perfect for the highly organized.

Featuring drawers of alternating size and X-shaped handles, there’s nothing conventional about this frost white lacquered dresser from the mind of Paul Frankl. 

If the white version of this dresser isn’t bold enough for you, you can always have it in red.

Paul Frankl’s use of lines and dimension on this dresser are masterful. Three differently sized drawers ensure that you can always fit all your belongings.

Ribbing in alternating directions adds texture to this credenza, which has both mid-century modern and modern elements.

Utterly unexpected in color and form, this Russian Birch credenza is sure to be a conversation piece in any setting. 

Campaign-style dressers are everywhere. But we particularly like AVE’s four-drawer version.

Another campaign-style dresser, this navy piece from Williams-Sonoma could easily integrate into many different styles of décor.
