Edward Wormley Case Pieces and Storage Cabinets

American, 1907-1995

As the longtime director of design for the Dunbar furniture company, Edward Wormley was, along with such peers as George Nelson at Herman Miller Inc., and Florence Knoll of Knoll Inc., one of the leading forces in bringing modern design into American homes in the mid-20th century. Not an axiomatic modernist, Wormley deeply appreciated traditional design, and consequently his vintage seating, storage cabinets, bar carts and other work has an understated warmth and a timeless quality that sets it apart from other furnishings of the era.

Wormley was born in rural Illinois and as a teenager took correspondence courses from the New York School of Interior Design. He later attended the Art Institute of Chicago but ran out of money for tuition before he could graduate. Marshall Field hired Wormley in 1930 to design a line of reproduction 18th-century English furniture; the following year he was hired by the Indiana-based Dunbar, where he quickly distinguished himself. It was a good match.

Dunbar was an unusual firm: it did not use automated production systems; its pieces were mostly hand-constructed. For his part, Wormley did not use metal as a major component of furniture; he liked craft elements such as caned seatbacks, tambour drawers, or the woven-wood cabinet fronts seen on his Model 5666 sideboard of 1956. He designed two lines for Dunbar each year — one traditional, one modern — until 1944, by which time the contemporary pieces had become the clear best sellers.

Many of Wormley’s signature pieces — chairs, sofas, tables and more — are modern interpretations of traditional forms. His 1946 Riemerschmid Chair — an example is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art — recapitulates a late 19th-century German design. The long, slender finials of his Model 5580 dining chairs are based on those of Louis XVI chairs; his Listen-to-Me Chaise (1948) has a gentle Rococo curve; the “Precedent” line that Wormley designed for Drexel Furniture in 1947 is a simplified, pared-down take on muscular Georgian furniture. But he could invent new forms, as his Magazine table of 1953, with its bent wood pockets, and his tiered Magazine Tree (1947), both show. And Wormley kept his eye on design currents, creating a series of tables with tops that incorporate tiles and roundels by the great modern ceramicists Otto and Gertrud Natzler.

As the vintage items on 1stDibs demonstrate, Edward Wormley conceived of a subdued sort of modernism, designing furniture that fits into any decorating scheme and does not shout for attention.

By Dunbar Furniture, Edward Wormley
Located in Chino Hills, CA
Seize the opportunity to own a slice of design history with this exquisite vintage mid-century modern credenza, masterfully designed by the legendary Edward Wormley for Dunbar, hailing from the creative zenith of the 1960s. This credenza is a testament to Wormley's philosophy that functional furniture should not forsake beauty. Having received a meticulous restoration, the rich walnut wood displays a lustrous finish, with even the backing revitalized to showcase its full glory from every angle. This svelte case piece stretches 72 inches in width, stands 28 inches high, and reaches 15 inches in depth—a refined and slim profile that distinguishes it from its more robust counterparts. It features a trio of leather off-white doors that slide with satisfying precision to reveal a trio of adjustable shelves, offering versatile storage solutions for the discerning collector or design enthusiast. Edward Wormley's association with Dunbar Furniture brought about an era of accessible, yet sophisticated designs that were inherently modern yet timeless. Wormley's work is characterized by its sublime craftsmanship and elegance, a homage to the harmony between function and form—a narrative that this credenza exemplifies. Envision this piece as the centerpiece in a minimalist setting, its clean lines and warm walnut tones contrasting with the cool austerity of modern design.
