Tall Five Drawer Midcentury Chest Moderne by Widdicomb Furniture Co.

$1,780

About

A fine midcentury tall five drawer birch chest moderne designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings for Widdicomb Furniture Co, based out of Grand Rapids, MI. Rejecting many of the tenets of Mid-Century Modernism, Robsjohn-Gibbings favored contoured edges and lightness over the bulky, sharp edges of many contemporaneous designs. He worked as a designer for the firm in the 1940s and 1950s. This sleek design chest moderne features light faux double drawer fronts with brass ring pulls in a contrasting dark lacquered case. The chest is in very good condition, with some surface scratches and imperfections, and light expected wear from age and use. A Widdicomb label appears in the top drawer. Dimensions: 50 in H x 36 in W x 20.25 in D.
