Nadeau’s Auction Gallery has recently had the opportunity to make their auctions larger and better. They have succeeded with the Mid Century, Custom, Contemporary, Decorative Accessories, Art Auction. The auction offers Mid-century modern art, furniture, and accessories. Mid-century modern art is generally referred to art created between the mid-1940s through the early 1970s. It focuses on turning geometrical shapes into curves and waves or have jagged edges and an artsy roughness. The furniture from this time was often sculptural, yet functional.
Edward Wormley (1907-1995) began designing furniture for the Dunbar Furniture Company during the Depression. His sophisticated, yet mainstream designs were very successful. Included in this auction is an Edward Wormley for Dunbar Avocado Tuxedo sofa, with original Dunbar upholstery, circa the 1950s. A more contemporary item featured in the auction is an eight-piece teak set that includes a rectangular table with six armchairs and a tea cart. Teak wood makes for great outdoor furniture because it has greater naturally weather-resistant properties than most other types of wood.
