Fabulous Kent Coffey Piece

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I had to share with you a fabulous nightstand that I found while on another shopping adventure with my friend Tori. It was at a Thrift Store for $30!!

It is a Kent Coffey piece from the "El Chico" line, made sometime in the 1950's or 60's. You will notice the reference to an antique Spanish style trellis or elegant Spanish tile.

Do you think Mr.Coffey was inspired after a trip to Mexico or Spain?

Can you see this painted with an accent color behind the trellis??

It is really hard finding any information on Kent Coffey furniture and even harder to find images of all the product lines. I have yet to find any information or images on the El Chico line.

This is what I know about Mr.Coffey...he owned the Lenoir, NC based company and his main competitor was James Broyhill and he offered reasonably priced, well made furniture. There doesn't seem to be a ton of this furniture available and the ones that are available seem to be reasonably priced, mid-century modern pieces.

I just fell in love with the lines and the lattice detail on the top drawer front. There was another nightstand in the thrift store and now I am KICKING myself for not purchasing it!!! Stupid me! I separated these two fabulous twins!! I wonder if it would still be there if I went's hoping!!

Here is the slightly less than fabulous drawer lining. Thankfully, it came out easily.

Here is what was left of the hardware:

How is this piece for some inspiration!! Found on Stylehive

A rare Spanish Colonial Mexican Gilded Cabinet.

I have started painting it and can't wait to share with you the finished piece!! It may just be the perfect fit in Miss Emely's room.

I really want to go back and find it's sister!!!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!

  3. i found a el chico by kc at a garage sale in my hood. i live in a hood built in the 50's. looks to me like it had been brush painted in the 70's yellow w/ some gold trim. it has wrought iron legs, nicely curled with the latice on the one drawer in the front. but, the lattice was falling apart. it had a really ugly laminate on both flat surfaces.

    i'm restoring it to my taste-beige w/ brown trim--and i've cleaned the iron legs w/ wd-40. they have a hammered look, as well. i will have to paint the lattice in to keep it looking as close to original as possible. will post pics soon.

  4. also, i paid $25 for it. and, yes, it's very difficult to fine info on kc. yours is the only pic of the el chico line i've found.
