The North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh will receive into its permanent collection American Furniture Hall of Fame inductee Bob Timberlake’s original mock-up dresser. 

Introduced in 1989, The World of Bob Timberlake® Collection of furniture has been recognized as the most successful furniture brand ever launched in the home furnishings industry. “The success,” Timberlake says, “can be tied back to the design and creation of this exact dresser.”

When he was just 15 years old, Timberlake won the Industrial Arts Award – a national award sponsored by the Ford Motor Company – for a Pennsylvania Dutch dowry chest he built in high school shop class. He’d spent over 350 hours building and painting this first original piece of furniture.

This dresser is the first prototype piece of furniture assembled for The World of Bob Timberlake® furniture collection by Lexington Furniture Industries. This sample was crafted as a mock-up for design in 1989, using solid cherry wood in a warm, hand-antiqued, timeworn cherry finish. Created using a 12-step process, the finish was inspired by Lexington, NC, Master Craftsman and Bob’s mentor, Fred Craver. The dresser’s custom hardware uses a unique oxidized aging process on antique brass. This piece was produced by longtime Lexington employee and craftsman Charles Conrad.

Timberlake wanted to maintain the natural characteristics and knots within the wood, like the one seen on the middle drawer. This was virtually unheard of in the industry when the line was released in October 1990. Timberlake insisted that the character of the wood be left in his furniture. “Put the finish in the wood, not on the wood,” he stipulated. “This piece will get a patina and look more beautiful with age.” This philosophy, and other unique design concepts Timberlake introduced, was a major reason for the success of The World of Bob Timberlake® Collection.
