1950s Mid-Century Modern Herman Miller Sideboard
Rare and early Executive Office Group credenza/sideboard designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller circa 1951. This particular piece was purchased around 1958 according to the original owner and it is signed with the early foil label.
This "Storage Unit" as it is referred to on page 42 of the book, Herman Miller Offie by Leslie Pina, is a stunning and very functional design in person. Originally designed for commercial use, this line of furniture has found a place in residential spaces due to its timeless design and versatility.
The credenza is comprised of solid secondary woods with walnut veneers. This is all real wood free of formica type plastic laminate, including the top. The fire and grain to the walnut is impressive. This piece was designed to stand alone and was never used as a return for a desk.
In fact, it could be used as a room divider due to its wonderfully finished back. Two large black masonite sliding doors open to reveal plenty of storage space in the form of several pull-out drawers. and two cubby-holes with adjustable shelves. These drawers can be removed/adjusted to suit your needs. Supporting it all are 4 brushed tubular steel legs.
This particular design is quite rare.
