Description

This stunning Brutalist gentlemen’s chest dresser uses several species of wood to create a truly unique look. The magpie assortment of veneers include maple, oak, burl wood, rosewood and walnut. The main body of the piece is a honey colored maple, fitting for this Canadian made credenza. Consider completing your bedroom by purchasing the matching nightstands and headboard.

It’s not called Brutalist because it’s Brutal. The bold, polarizing, visual vocabulary known as “Brutalism” gets it’s name for the French word for “raw.” Some say it is an “antidesign” aesthetic as it favors basic, functional forms, over pomp. This austere aesthetic first rose to prominence in the architectural world in the 1970s. Soon enough designers like Paul Evans, Silas Seandel, Curtis Jere and Tom Greene adopted this visual canon, bringing an architectural philosophy into the world of furniture, lighting and decorative arts. Brutalism fell out of favor in the 1980s but has risen again to become a favorite of 20th Century design collectors.
