Sophisticated SAGA

By Julia

In the last installment of the SAGA saga, we found a king-sized headboard long distance. Today, we’re back in the bedroom with some dressers! My husband’s RSS feed was back in action combing Craigslist ads far and wide to find anything that might fit with our SAGA collection. When we tracked down a hard-to-find magna dresser and another dresser set that came with not one but two nightstands, we had to bring them home. Getting them to our house in Michigan from the seller in North Carolina was another story. As far as I know, my spouse waved his hands and the furniture magically appeared in our living room one day.

It was a merry Christmas for us indeed. Getting everything up the stairs and around the tight corner at the top was a challenge, but didn’t require the same tricks as the headboard did.

The magna dresser is my favorite piece. The starburst cabinet at the top has dividers that are perfect for sweaters, and the small drawers on the side are great for little items like socks.

It even had an intact SAGA label!

The tall dresser is just like the one we scored on a different adventure, but it is in better shape.

The triple dresser was also in great shape. The starburst cabinet in the center has pull-out shelves that give easy access to shirts. It also has built-in jewelry holders in the drawers, which have become a safe home for cufflinks. However, the sloped ceilings in this room make it difficult to attach the mirror to this piece, so it is still in storage.

The triple dresser also had an intact SAGA label, but this one has a slightly different design.

We got two nightstands like this one: one for each side of the bed. The deep drawer is a great place to keep odds and ends that would normally accumulate on top of the nightstand.

The unusually large rooms in our house made it possible to get all of these pieces in one room. I love the starbursts and the unique legs of the SAGA line.

Each of these pieces were in such good shape, like they were hardly used!

What about you, dear readers? Have any of you found any unique pieces recently?

    Julia, isn’t it exciting when you find that needle in a haystack matching piece? I love the fact you are putting together a matching bedroom. I went to the last day of an estate sale a couple of weeks ago, and although I wasn’t looking for it, I ended up buying a 1954 Heritage Henredon cabinet for $70 to store my huge stack of LPs It’s walnut and even though it isn’t big, it weighs a ton.

    I have three end tables, a buffet and dining table with chairs from this same or similar walnut furniture line that belonged to my great uncle and aunt. The end tables and buffet have the same starburst pattern and handles as yours. I also live in Michigan.

      Aren’t they dreamy?

    Isn’t it a joy to rescue MCM furniture pieces from around the country, so that they find a new home with someone who appreciates them?!
