Similar Substitution for a Discontinued Dresser?
Q: In an effort to consolidate two or three pieces of furniture in our bedroom and give it a more open feel we have been in search of a larger piece that can store more. We thought we found the right piece of furniture in the Larkspur 11 Drawer dresser form Restoration Hardware when we discovered it had been discontinued, and that the store we were in even had a waiting list of people who wanted the floor model, …

…Our style is warm and natural modern and we are in the grown up phase of our life looking for enduring furniture that we will keep for the long term.

We like the Larkspur because of the clean lines and the fact that the hardware was campaign style so it was flush with the dresser fronts and disappeared in profile (this isn’t required but it worked for this piece). You actually see the profile of the dresser down a long hallway from the dining area in the living room/dining/kitchen combo area so the campaign style hardware was a help.
Here is a link to the discontinued Larkspur.
Ideally we would like to keep the cost under $3,000 unless it is the perfect piece, and we would love to even find the perfect vintage piece. The width of the piece needs to be less than 70 inches.Thank you so much for your ideas – we have shopped and shopped and are burned out in our search. All the best, Jack
Editor: The Larkspur dresser is BIG. While its size alone puts it in another league, I would continue to watch the offerings from Restoration Hardware as they release new designs often and frequently tweak discontinued styles with minor variations and brand new names.
Though it’s not as large, the 64″ Mondo from Room & Board has a similar aesthetic and appears much lighter due to the long legs.
