Herman Miller is renowned for its ergonomic office furniture and sleek midcentury designs. But did you know that until 1930, the company produced mainly traditional wood furniture in historic revival styles?
This circa 1920 nightstands is one of the finer examples of early Herman Miller craftsmanship. It features solid wood construction with burled walnut veneer, inlaid wood marquetry, and exquisitely carved moldings and ornamentation.
The top of the night stand displays a field of burled walnut bordered with mitered satinwood and decorated with a half-round federal period fan ending in feathers.
The night stand includes one dovetailed drawer and one door with brass floral knobs. The drawer has intricate floral swag marquetry, and the door has a Greek key border. The night stand is by four legs, the front two carved with acanthus leaves.
The night stand measures 29.25″ tall, 16″ wide, and 16″ deep.
The night stand is in good vintage condition with wear commensurate with age. In particular, please note the water spots and wear on the top’s shellac finish. Please see photos for more details.
Matching chest on chest, vanity with mirror and bench, and dresser with mirror also available. Please see other listings or ask for more photos.
