Art Deco "Design for Living" Cabinet by Gilbert Rohde, 1933

About

RETIREMENT SALE!!! EVERYTHING MUST GO - CHECK OUT OUR OTHER ITEMS. Freshly employed to design furnishings for the Herman Miller Company, American designer Gilbert Rohde created the "Design for Living" line. The furniture made its' debut at the "Design for Living Home" at the 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair to great acclaim. Rohde was the first to create cabinet designs that could fit side by side as a modular concept. This multi - purpose cabinet is executed in American ash and mahogany, with brushed steel handles. The faces feature an clever placement of veneers in a chevron pattern, creating a visual interest on a simple shape. The cabinet retains its' original foil tag, identifying Rohde as the designer. The finish shows overall age, but will be refinished before shipping.
