Parallel by Drexel Dining Table from March, 1960 Designed by Barney Flagg

Update 01/21/14: We've sold the table.

What a momentous occasion. Firstly a new post after 3 months of inactivity. It's a long story, but really, who cares, right?

And secondly, I'm mentioning a designer's name after posts and posts claiming I don't know anything about who designed what during the MidCentury era.

Barney Flagg? Barney Rubble? Again, who cares? It's the Drexel name and the Parallel series (I almost wrote Parallel line. Get it? Parallel lines? Never mind.) that is the draw here.

Parallel by Drexel Dining Table w/ Leaf

Bottom line is: We have one and if you need one come see us. Check this out.

Provenance? Attribution? We got it right here.

Original hardware and latch still in place.

I'm going out on a limb and saying it's walnut.

Look at those lines, will ya? What a beauty.
Top is in good to very good condition.

Some oooo steel wool and restore-a-finish and you have a nearly new table.
Did I mention we have a leaf?

All of this walnutty wonderfullness can be had for the ridiculously low price of $95 U.S. dollars.

You can see this graceful beast at Friends of Abandoned Animals Thrift Store, 13026 Palm Beach Boulevard, Fort Myers Shores, FLA, Monday - Saturday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Feel free to give us a call at 239-267-5309.


  1. That's a great table! We had a Barney Flagg bedroom set at our first store. I have to admit, that's just about as glamorous a name as Barney Rubble. I think I would have made up a new professional name. :)

  2. I could use that table. I doubt it will hang around long enough for me to get down your way though. Good to see you back in the blog saddle. I've been way remiss myself lately.
