This early example of a tall compact sideboard cabinet is made from afrormosia and designed by E Gomme for G Plan in the late 1950s or early 60s. This vintage, mid-century cabinet features adjustable feet and two drawers below its two cabinet doors.
British furniture manufacturing company G-Plan was launched in 1953, but its roots go back to 1898, when Ebenezer Gomme set up a fine woodworking atelier, E. Gomme Ltd., in High Wycombe. The company was revered for its range of high-quality sideboards, tables, and other cabinet goods.
After WWII, there was a small but growing market for high-quality, modernist furniture, and G-Plan successfully spoke to this younger, more progressive audience. By the 1960s, the Scandinavian look was sweeping international design.
