About

Milanese architect and designer Paolo Buffa (1903-1970) is a master of sophisticated, inventive classicism.
His thoughtful simplicity of design is embodied in this fine pair of nightstands finished in a smooth rosewood veneer and adorned with brass leaf handles, sitting on tapering legs with an understated circular routed design.

Handmade at the Angelo Merelli workshop and heat stamped to the top right door "Merelli Cantu".

Merelli's workshop are noted for their exceptional craftsmanship and use of high quality materials. They were regularly used by architects of the 'Milanese School' (Ponti, Lancia, Buzzi, Marellin and Franco Albini) to execute their designs.
