With a start in 1845, the John Widdicomb Company, has a long history of producing high quality furniture. Especially, the company’s mid century modern furniture took off with incredible success, and cemented its popularity as a recognized producer of fine modern furniture. The classical designs gave way to distinguished modern pieces, which beautify bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms, including Louis XV Provincial designs, the first of its kind to be made in the country. The company set the trend for the ongoing popularity of French Provincial style that continues to this day.
For example, take the serpentine credenza, crafted by the company’s craftsmen to take the form of the dressing room table used by Catherine the Great of Russia. The piece has a classic appeal, and exudes a sense of luxury that has the beauty of a piece of art and the function of a practical storage piece. This particular piece fuses its regal influence with English forms, and features walnut veneers and inlays in uique patterns. This piece also features inlays of maple and tulip wood, embellished doors with ebony inlays, and a cove-shaped top edge with Greco-Roman lion mask ring pulls.
Another stunning, high quality creation is that of the Russian neo-classical china cabinet, featuring gilted dentil and egg and dart moulding, as well as the frieze which contains inlays of Karelian birch outlined with ebony between a pair of brass medallions. This gorgeous cabinet features a plinty base, touch-controlled lighting, adjustable 3/8 plate grooved glass shelves and is available with an antique mirror, fabric, or wood in its interior. The solid cherry and Karelian birch veneer add to the timeless elegance of this piece.
John Widdicomb Company produces a variety of beautiful pieces that will fit from room to room. The Queen Anne Baroque Side Chair and Arm Chair, are examples of exquisite pieces that can be moved from room to room to add an element of refined décor. The Queen Anne design features an English interpretation of Baroque outlines, and a refinement of scale and detail in the pieces’ legs and frame. Foliated designs and carved shell embellish the legs and feet of these elegant chairs, though scaled smaller for a dainty appeal. The company crafts many other pieces for the home, that will infuse your place with elegance and timeless charm. From fine dining tables, chairs, bookshelves, credenzas, cabinets, side tables and end tables, sofas, chairs, benches and much more, make John Widdicomb Company your step for the finest quality furniture.
