*Jon Van Koert was a designer of silverware and furniture. During the course of his life Jon Van Koert was a driving force in bringing Danish modern and Scandinavian modern designs to America. His designs were presented in the show rooms of department stores such as Macy's and Bloomingdale’s, but eventually started designing for larger companies, such as Drexel Furniture.
Drexel Furniture Company was established in 1903 in Drexel, North Carolina. Production began with about 50 workers making oak dressers, washstands, and chiffonniers. By 1957 Drexel's product line included 1,200 different pieces. In 1968 U.S. Plywood Champion Papers purchased Drexel Enterprises, and the company became Drexel Heritage Furnishings, Inc, which is still in business today.
