WALNUT BUFFET BY AMERICAN OF MARTINSVILLE
Over one hundred years ago in the small town of Martinsville, Virginia, a household name was born. American of Martinsville started out as a small business owned by two business men in the tobacco industry. Seeing the growing demand of quality furniture during the prosperous industrial era of the early twentieth-century, they knew it would be a quality investment. They were right.
By the 1950s, American of Martinsville was about as American as mid-century modern design gets, and earned its place among the pantheon of American furniture makers. Its midcentury designs are some of the company’s most striking. In addition to their designs, the furniture was typically crafted from the finest cherry, walnut, and oak wood.
This credenza stands true to those values set by American of Matinsville all those years ago. Featuring solid and veneer Walnut and Oak secondaries, dovetail joints and Walnut sculpture drawer pulls. It has ample storage with three full size drawers and open shelving behind two doors. Finished in a custom stain that highlights the grain character, a muted interior and complimented by a mid-century floral drawer liner. Functional and sustainable, this piece will serve you well in any setting.

MENGEL 9 DRAWER DRESSER
“Between two products equal in price, function, and quality, the better looking will outsell the other.” – Loewy
Sometime after World War II Mengel Co. hired a french-american designer by the name of Raymond Loewy to design for a new line of modern furniture called Permanized. Raymond Loewy, who would later be dubbed “the father of industrial design”, has many well-known accomplishments. They include the iconic Shell logo, a Greyhound bus, a S-1 locomotive, the Lucky Strike package, the Coldspot refrigerator and the Studebaker Avanti. From products to corporate identity to public transportation he prided himself on making “the mundane side of the 20th century more beautiful”. While his furniture for Mengel isn’t counted as one of his most notable achievements, its legacy continues as this mid-century modern furniture continues to be collected by aficionados. The items produced possess qualities evident to the philosophies of their maker; concepts he applied to a vast variety of products.
This dresser is an exceptional example of Loewy's design. Circa 1960 from the Permanized collection featuring solid substrates, bleached mahogany veneer, dovetail joinery and nine large drawers. The clean line body balanced on tapered legs embodies the mid century modern movement in design. It is complimented with an antique oak stain, vintage floral drawer liners and antique brass hardware with brass capped legs. It's size and function will allow this piece to be displayed in virtually any setting.

DO YOU ACCEPT RETURNS?
Rest assured we make every effort to insure that your experience and purchase exceeds expectations. All sales are final on furniture purchases. All pieces are insured during shipping. Should the furniture arrive damaged by the shipping company, please contact us to arrange reimbursement through the insurance policy. All other products are available for return or exchange for defective items. Items are not available for return or exchange due to any other reason.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY FURNITURE?
All pieces require 21-30 days to fully cure. Please remember only light use and only dry dust cleaning during this time. All of my pieces have been sealed with safe and quality top coats so that they are cleanable with soap and water after the cure time. Do not use harsh chemicals or industrial strength chemicals as they may cause deterioration of the finish.
WHAT CONDITION IS THE FURNITURE YOU REFINISH?
I source quality vintage, antique, and used furniture pieces that are not bought new from a warehouse. This is because I believe in reducing the waste produced by reusing materials that are high quality. This also means that there will be the general wear on the furniture that does not detract from its functionality. This includes minor cosmetic imperfections. These show the furniture pieces history and unique character. Look at all of my photos for accurate depiction of the furniture piece. If you have any questions please message me. Upon purchasing, you are agreeing to receiving as is and if you would like any improvements made that will be discussed prior to purchase.
