Fabulous Vintage "Brutalist" Credenza, Completely Refinished!
Absolutely show-stopping mid century "brutalist" style credenza, completely refinished! This incredibly unique piece was made in Canada by a furniture company called Tobago, circa 1970s. It features the most fantastic carved wood detailing on the the drawer and door fronts, which is more than an inch thick in places. The exterior walnut grain has been cleverly utilized to enhance the design: grains run horizontally on the top and drawer/door fronts, but vertically on the top and bottom of the frame, creating an interesting contrast. Tobago pieces are well-documented in this style, however; this exact design is nowhere to be found! It is identical to the Tobago pieces found online, but with the addition of two vertical wood detail pieces on each "arch" along the front, as well as being longer overall. Beautifully refinished from top to bottom, the left and right cabinets used to hold a bank of drawers, but have been replaced with custom made adjustable shelves for more versatility. Truly an exceptional example of vintage furniture design! (Also check out our ad for the matching side tables/nightstands - baby versions of this one!) 80"L x 21.25D x 30.5"H, $1995
