This is a super-hard-to-find walnut / mahogany credenza / buffet / sideboard with slick and stream-lined profile from 60s, with the most amazing, highly figured wood grains and diamond pattern marquetry front. This piece is in style of the very best works by famed Italian American designer Renzo Rutili or some other famous Italian modern designers of 60s. However, this piece is a part of very hard-to-find line by American of Martinsville (AM) in 60s and we currently don't have a documentational evidence that Renzo Rutili designed for AM. AM has produced many, high quality and beautiful mid century modern case good in 60s. But this line is unbeknownst to many, we could not find any reference of this piece upon internet search, not to mention anything available for sale! This piece incorporates clean and stream-lined profile, like those found in danish modern pieces, with simple rectangular cabinet floating on organically shaped base and legs. The front of the credenza features 5 door panels, each with diamond patterned marquetry, where the diamond center is walnut and the sides are quarter sewn mahogany, designed to produce contrasting shade of wood, varying depending on the viewing angle! Each panel has a brass mounted walnut handle that accentuates the sense of elegance and enhances symmetry. The left side houses 3 drawers behind a bi-folding door, and right hand side is equipped with a storage space with vertical divider to store thinner items like records and a large storage space to the right. This unique combination of storage options accommodate many different shapes and sizes. The storage space on the right side is big enough for most any electronics or media components. If the buyer need a removable and adjustable shelf for the storage space, we can provide one at our cost. This piece boasts beautiful walnut grains on all 4 sides. Particularly the walnut used for the top is simply amazing. Among the best walnut piece of 60s we have found, with highly figured grains to the level that you never see, except on some Brazillian rosewood. Even better is the hand oil rubbed finish boasting intricate grain pattern details that appear and disappear with varying shade of color upon the viewing angles.
