Exquisite Art Deco sideboard or credenza manufactured by French furniture maker Charles Dudouyt, one of the best first half of the 20th century French furniture makers. For Brutalist design enthusiasts, this might just be perfect. Spring like legs elevating the cabinet so it appears to be floating. Consists of 3 large drawers with oversized handles and two doors providing lots of storage space. Beautiful hand carving around the front of the entire credenza. Great wood color. This all makes this sideboard really stand out. Near mint condition. Information on Dudouyt: A major figure in early 20th century French design, Charles Dudouyt moved France’s design aesthetic from an elaborate classicism to a more modernist sensibility. Following World War I, Dudouyt abandoned painting and drawing to manufacture lamps and other decorative objects. He moved to Paris in 1933 and turned away from French classicism, adopting more refined contemporary forms. His style found parallels with the arts and crafts movement, characterized by an honest approach to simple materials like wood. Dudouyt’s move to Paris coincided with a more ambitious scale of production; he switched from making decorative objects to large furniture sets including tables and chairs.
