In the late 1950’s, Stewart MacDougall and Kipp Stewart partnered with Drexel Heritage to design Declaration, a modern collection in natural walnut. These pieces are considered classics today and usually can be found on the typical sites online such as eBay and Craigslist. Of course those of us who love the thrill of the hunt have much more fun scouring thrift shops, antique stores and auctions.
I thought it would be fun to show share some photos of the collection in an “original” setting, as well as some of the vintage catalog pages. If you have any Declaration pieces in your home or remember them in your parents’ or grand-parent’s homes, we would love to hear from you.
