Mid 20th Century Edward Wormley for Dunbar #4809 Trapezoid Tables, a Pair


Design Plus Gallery presents a RARE Pair of Side Tables by Dunbar. An uncommon early trapezoidal shape, Model #4809 was designed by Edward Wormley for Dunbar, circa 1948. The unique pair of side tables are framed smoothly in mahogany with tapered legs, topped with glass insets. Light evidence of surface wear; consistent with age and use.

“As the longtime director of design for the Dunbar furniture company, Edward Wormley was, along with such peers as George Nelson at Herman Miller Inc., and Florence Knoll of Knoll Inc., one of the leading forces in bringing modern design into American homes in the mid-20th century. Not an axiomatic modernist, Wormley deeply appreciated traditional design, and consequently his work has an understated warmth and a timeless quality that sets it apart from other furnishings of the era.”
