Mid Century White and Newton Tallboy chest of drawers in light teak with beech trim, 1960s


White and Newton of Portsmouth was one of Britain's forerunning furniture manufacturers of the 20th century. Like many other British Mid century manufacturers, it was heavily involved in the WW2 effort, employing new and innovative technologies in the production of aircraft and parts. Following the war, it returned to furniture making and adapted these new methods into the creation of modern and ergonomic designs. This beautiful tallboy chest of drawers is a wonderful example of mid century British furniture using simple design principles with the addition of elegant recessed handles in beech trim. With five spacious drawers for ample clothes storage, it is both a stylish and highly functional piece of mid century modern furniture.
