Black Reclaimed G-Plan Storage Sideboard Cabinet
A reclaimed and upscaled G-Plan cabinet in black with diamond mosaic-like coloured pattern lives up to the original G-Plan idea of modern style. The G-Plan range began in 1953 and was the product of Donald Gomme, the son of Ebenezer Gomme who had produced traditional furniture since the Victorian era. The new range hit the market by storm, with their ‘floaty’ look on ‘spindly’ legs, the products ranged from cabinets to wardrobes to chairs and more.
G-Plan revolutionized the selling aspect of its furniture, allowing customers to purchase a single piece or a whole room’s worth. This cabinet represents this approach, available on its own at the time of production, it’s iconic design – on its metal ‘spindly’ hairpin legs – meant another piece of furniture could be bought at a later date to match it or it could effortlessly sit as a unique statement piece in any room.
The black ‘shell’ is in very good condition with only some age related marks evident. The interior of the cabinet is in excellent condition as are its shelves.
The iconic hairpin legs are sturdy and rigid, a short time spent cleaning will bring the shine back.
The sticker on the inside of the door indicates this is from 1965-1975.
Cabinet measures (in length, depth and height): 162.50cm x 46cm x 70.5cm
G-Plan is a name synonymous with design, even today with their modern products. Original, vintage, items are rapidly gaining interest as their design prowess is being recognized. This particular cabinet is in amazing condition and with its striking coloured finish and on its original hairpin legs should prove to be a good investment.
