Fabulous and Founders Furniture… What a uniquely designed octagon Founders Furniture Pattern 21 commode table #21135!! Just look at the incredible book-matched veneer top, the cut-off or angled corners, wonderful bronze-tone brass pull on its double opening doors, and it retains its original hang tag!! It also has an interesting groove detail and toe-kick. The wood grain is phenomenal although we had a debate here in the shop between my parents (and work partners!) as to whether it is comprised of rosewood or walnut… My mom said rosewood while my dad said walnut… So, hate to tell them BUT… they were BOTH wrong!! Ha Ha! After MY THOUROUGH research, we now know it is comprised of fabulous Mozambique wood aka Ovangkol or Shedua, an African hardwood! Also, we know Jack Cartwright designed for this company, and many mistakenly think that Milo Baughman did as well (he did not!) and even though we do not know who did design this beauty… we know that Baughman or Cartwright did NOT. Either way, it is a gorgeous end table with generous open storage space behind the double doors. This cabinet is exceptionally versatile and would be fabulous in a hall or entry way under a gorgeous piece of art adorned with a sculpture or foliage. In your family room used to store games and books or in your living room as a lovely end table. Possibilities for this magnificent cabinet are truly endless and it is going to blend in beautifully with any décor style whether mid-century modern, modern, traditional, modern country, or mountain cottage!
Founders Furniture was started in 1947 as a subsidiary of the esteemed Knoll International for their residential line and then merged with Thomasville Furniture in 1965.
Call it a commode table, call it an end table, or call it a cabinet… but whatever you choose to call it, Call it YOURS!!!
