Modern Sideboards

MODERN STYLE

The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw sweeping social change and major scientific advances — both of which contributed to a new aesthetic: modernism. Rejecting the rigidity of Victorian artistic conventions, modernists sought a new means of expression. References to the natural world and ornate classical embellishments gave way to the sleek simplicity of the Machine Age. Architect Philip Johnson characterized the hallmarks of modernism as “machine-like simplicity, smoothness or surface [and] avoidance of ornament.”

Early practitioners of modernist design include the De Stijl (“The Style”) group, founded in the Netherlands in 1917, and the Bauhaus School, founded two years later in Germany.

Followers of both groups produced sleek, spare designs — many of which became icons of daily life in the 20th century. The modernists rejected both natural and historical references and relied primarily on industrial materials such as metal, glass, plywood, and, later, plastics. While Bauhaus principals Marcel Breuer and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created furniture from mass-produced, chrome-plated steel, American visionaries like Charles and Ray Eames worked in materials as novel as molded plywood and fiberglass. Today, Breuer’s Wassily chair, Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chaircrafted with his romantic partner, designer Lilly Reich — and the Eames lounge chair are emblems of progressive design and vintage originals are prized cornerstones of collections.

It’s difficult to overstate the influence that modernism continues to wield over designers and architects — and equally difficult to overstate how revolutionary it was when it first appeared a century ago. But because modernist furniture designs are so simple, they can blend in seamlessly with just about any type of décor. Don’t overlook them.

Modern Walnut and Koa Credenza with Sculptural Legs by Thomas Throop - In Stock
Located in New Canaan, CT
The Laguna credenza is a study in contrast and form. The rectilinear cabinet balances elegantly on six energetic legs full of movement. The six doors feature the prominent rift sawn grain of rare iridescent Hawaiian koa which is framed by the solid walnut case. The base is comprised of six sculptural hand shaped legs which are joined to create two pedestals which supports the cabinet above. The legs have been ebonized to visually ground the piece and heighten the overall sense of contrast and richness of the walnut and koa. Each door handle is a custom shaped piece of three thousand year old bog oak. The credenza is comprised of three compartments with adjustable shelves. Each element is shaped, joined and finished so as to create a united design. The Laguna credenza is designed and made at the Black Creek Designs studio in New Canaan, CT by Thomas Throop...
