This is a unique vintage Mid Century Modern G-Plan walnut chest of drawers, refashioned using timeless botanical wild flower illustrations on a black background to decorate the casing and turn it into a truly original one of a kind, stunning statement piece.
The original chest was designed when the company was led by Donald Gomme, Grandson of E Gomme. It was designed by the talented V B Wilkins for their breakthrough Mid Century Range of Modernist furniture launched in the late 1950s. E Gomme released this piece as one of several pieces of matching, high quality, domestic furniture intended to be paid for piece by piece over several years. They named this concept the “G Plan”, short for Gomme Plan. The concept caught on and the G Plan was quickly copied by other British furniture makers but E Gomme’s early design remains highly distinctive and is now rightly becoming collectible amongst investors.
Drawer handles are solid wood, the chest is designed with a simple but stylish geometric look, taking inspiration from the clean lines and timeless good proportions of Scandinavian furniture. All drawers are precision engineered with high quality dovetailed joints. This chest has one large bottom drawer, two good sized middle drawers and two slightly recessed top drawers. The six generous drawers will provide ample storage for any well thought out space. The top drawer is usefully separated into three compartments and still features the original E Gomme makers stamp in gold.
