T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings Side Tables

Terence Harold Robsjohn-Gibbings was the most important decorator in America in the 1930's and 40's.  After opening a shop on Madison Avenue in 1936, he became the designer of choice for such prominent Americans as tobacco heiress Doris Duke, Alfred A. Knopf and Thelma Chrysler Foy.  His style would best be described as modern historicism.  He was heavily influenced by Ancient Grecian design and the visual vocabulary of the classical world.  That being said, his designs did, during his time,  and still do feel fresh and completely modern.  Some of his best known and most iconic pieces were produced during the time he worked as a designer for Widdicomb Furniture, from 1943 to 1956.  There is a casual elegance and rich simplicity to his work during that period that few others have been able to achieve, but many have tried to copy.  Designed by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings for Widdicomb, these two tiered tables are cool, clean and very modern.  34" l., 16" w., 22" h.  American, c. 1950's  SOLD
