Mid-Century Modern Shelves and Wall Cabinets

MID-CENTURY MODERN STYLE

Organically shaped, clean-lined and elegantly simple are three terms that well describe vintage mid-century modern furniture. The style, which emerged primarily in the years following World War II, is characterized by pieces that were conceived and made in an energetic, optimistic spirit by creators who believed that good design was an essential part of good living.

VINTAGE MID-CENTURY MODERN FURNITURE ON 1STDIBS

The mid-century modern era saw leagues of postwar American architects and designers animated by new ideas and new technology. The lean, functionalist International-style architecture of Le Corbusier and Bauhaus eminences Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius had been promoted in the United States during the 1930s by Philip Johnson and others. New building techniques, such as “post-and-beam” construction, allowed the International-style schemes to be realized on a small scale in open-plan houses with long walls of glass.

Materials developed for wartime use became available for domestic goods and were incorporated into mid-century modern furniture designs. Charles and Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen, who had experimented extensively with molded plywood, eagerly embraced fiberglass for pieces such as the La Chaise and the Womb chair, respectively. 

Architect, writer and designer George Nelson created with his team shades for the Bubble lamp using a new translucent polymer skin and, as design director at Herman Miller, recruited the Eameses, Alexander Girard and others for projects at the legendary Michigan furniture manufacturer

Harry Bertoia and Isamu Noguchi devised chairs and tables built of wire mesh and wire struts. Materials were repurposed too: The Danish-born designer Jens Risom created a line of chairs using surplus parachute straps for webbed seats and backrests.

The Risom lounge chair was among the first pieces of furniture commissioned and produced by legendary manufacturer Knoll, a chief influencer in the rise of modern design in the United States, thanks to the work of Florence Knoll, the pioneering architect and designer who made the firm a leader in its field. The seating that Knoll created for office spaces — as well as pieces designed by Florence initially for commercial clients — soon became desirable for the home.

As the demand for casual, uncluttered furnishings grew, more mid-century furniture designers caught the spirit.

Classically oriented creators such as Edward Wormley, house designer for Dunbar Inc., offered such pieces as the sinuous Listen to Me chaise; the British expatriate T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings switched gears, creating items such as the tiered, biomorphic Mesa table. There were Young Turks such as Paul McCobb, who designed holistic groups of sleek, blond wood furniture, and Milo Baughman, who espoused a West Coast aesthetic in minimalist teak dining tables and lushly upholstered chairs and sofas with angular steel frames.

As the collection of vintage mid-century modern chairs, dressers, coffee tables and other furniture for the living room, dining room, bedroom and elsewhere on 1stDibs demonstrates, this period saw one of the most delightful and dramatic flowerings of creativity in design history.

George Nelson OMNI Walnut Wall Unit, ca. 1960
Located in Costa Mesa, CA
George Nelson OMNI Walnut Wall Unit, ca. 1960. Beautiful original early OMNI walnut and aluminum wall unit by George Nelson for Herman Miller. Original shelving with 3 shelves, one magazine rack and one larger desk. Includes wall mounting hardware and all shelving brackets as shown, even the original tool for adjusting shelving heights. Walnut shelves are in very good original condition would rate as a 8.5/10 and the poles are excellent and include original pole end cushions/stoppers. Inquire for shipping quote, due to the dimensions the quote listed is higher than actual cost. As shown measures 64" W x 88" H x 19.5" D (Wall mounting hardware not included, you will need secure drywall anchors or bolts, consult your contractor) The OMNI shelving system emerged in conjunction with a complete corporate design program for Structural Products Inc. of Charlotte, Michigan, a subsidiary of Aluminum Extrusions. The goal was to find new ways of using the extruded aluminum products made by the company. The shelving system is supported by aluminum rods. These rods are either rectangular (with slits on each side) or round (with six slits). They are inserted using springs on both ends between floor and ceiling, and are cut to suit this purpose. In the slits, horizontal aluminum supports can be inserted for the shelves and shelving modules. The various components—storage elements, table panels, and lamps—make the shelf into a kind of all-purpose item for varied situations: living room, study, kitchen, or office. The OMNI shelving system can be seen as a further development of the StrucTube system that Nelson had developed for use in exhibitions and was used at Colonial Williamsburg. At the same time, the OMNI shelving system is the predecessor of the Comprehensive Storage...
