One Night Stand

One Night Stand

Modern bedside table or one night stand in solid White Ash.   Designed for the right-hand side of the bed. Featuring two drawers above a single door. The grain was carefully planned to fall continuously across the drawer and door faces. The table conceived in the French modernist style of the 1940’s.  The top is cantilevered on a hidden steel support.  The title was fondly named for the uniform the John Widdicomb Furniture Company bowling league wore.  The bowling shirts were emblazoned with a single French Provincial bedside table on the back. Somebody had a sense of humor and what a great group of Artisan’s to have worked with. The table dimensions are 24″width x 16″ deep x 29″ height.

Front View

The design for the cabinet was inspired by three important mid-century designers.  The staggered vertical shelf dividers are drawn from unique bookcases created by the French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand.  The colored sliding door panels were inspired by sideboards designed by the Danish furniture designer Finn Juhl. The half round molding profiles with their sculptured mitered joints are reminiscent of  T H Robsjohn Gibbings work for the Widdicomb Furniture  Company in the early 1960’s.
