Paolo Buffa night cabinets pair Italy 1950





Striking pair of night cabinets designed by Paolo Buffa made by an unknown manufacturer in Italy in 1950s. Made from beautiful jatoba, featuring contrasting beech wooden slats on the door panels. The dark wood and light slats create a striking contrast, giving the nightstands a graphical look, almost like an art frame. The rounded edges on top smoothly connect to the sides and feet, and the outward angle of the feet make these nightstands unique. The doors have round brass handles and hinges that add a luxurious feel to the design. These nightstands capture a bit of Italian design history, blending the characteristics of their origin which is the Italian Art Deco period. In very good condition. Kindly note the cabinets are priced and sold in a set of 2.


​Paolo Buffa’s debut in the world of design takes place at the end of the 1920s in the studio of ​Gio Ponti and Emilio Lancia, immersing himself in an atmosphere committed to the reinterpretation of the Lombard classicism and Milanese architecture. In the early 1930s, he founded his own practice. While professionally dedicated to the construction of architectural works, especially housing and private villas and venturing further into complex residential buildings, Buffa was especially passionate about furniture and product design, an area where he remained faithful to a figurative repertoire of substantial classicism, while not disdaining impulses of authentic modernity, ranging from different eras and styles, which would become an inexhaustible source of inspiration over time. His pieces are manufactured today by cabinet maker Eredi Marelli, the evolution of an original artisanal workshop founded in 1934 in Cantù, the heart of the famous furniture-making district by Milan.
