With a name that conjures up the Founding Fathers, it makes perfect sense that John Widdicomb is one of the earliest minted furniture brands around. Founded in 1858, early John Widdicomb furniture championed traditional architecture and design. From dressers to tables, John Widdicomb furniture embraced classic beauty to the fullest. In 1943, the brand hired on T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, who gave the brand a Modernist makeover. Vintage John Widdicomb furniture from this era encapsulates Robsjohn-Gibbings’s tastes for aerodynamic form, rich woods, and masterful construction.
