David Wakeley’s 20th Century Furniture

David Wakeley’s 20th Century Furniture is hinged on a desire to perfectly balance design, function, and visual impact. Wakeley’s inspiration comes from the furniture of the early to mid-20th century (hence the name), finding excitement in everything from the Mission Style to the mass produced design work of Saarinen.

The Boomerang bench (above) is part of 20th Century Furniture’s music offerings. With organic lines and natural finish, the bench is designed so that a pianist may reach for music in the drawer while remaining seated. The piece also comes with an upholstered seat if desired.
