Info

United States, 1940

Gilbert Rohde designed this buffet, model 4190, for Herman Miller using highly grained paldao wood from the Philippines. Behind four scalloped doors are numerous drawers, four of which are cork-lined for glassware and one velvet-lined for silverware, as well as additional storage. On either end, two pull-out boards of unfinished oak serve as cutting boards; one large grooved pull-out board in the center serves for meat and cheese. The entire case sits on a plinth base and the doors feature striking brass pulls.
