Edward J Wormley

Danish Modern Designers

American furniture designer, Edward J. Wormley, is recognized for taking elements from different design movements and merging them into his sophisticated interpretation of Mid-century modern. His designs embraced modernism without staying away from traditional and proved to be crafted in the highest quality.

Born in Oswego, Illinois, Wormely’s interest in design came when he was quite young. While still in high school, he took courses at the New York School of Interior Design. After he graduated high school, Wormley attended the Art Institute of Chicago and began his career as an interior designer at the Marshall Field & Company. After a few years, the company closed, and Wormley was left unemployed. He took this as an opportunity to travel around Europe, where he met famed architects Le Corbusier and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann.

In the 1930s, during the great depression, Wormley returned from Europe and met the president of Dunbar Furniture Company. He was initially hired to upgrade their product line but quickly became the Director of Design for the Berne, Indiana based company. His designs were well-received by the public, and in 1944 Dunbar transitioned into solely creating modern designs. Although the company shifted its focus to creating Modern furniture, Wormley was able to incorporate his ideas with inspiration drawn from past design movements. In only five years, Edward Wormely successfully made the Dunbar Furniture Company, the top producer of modern furniture in the United States.

Post World War II, he opened a private firm in New York City where he designed and consulted for several companies, Dunbar remaining as his primary client. Throughout his 40 year career, Wormley was able to see several of his creations honored at remarkable exhibitions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Boston Museum of Art and the XIII Triennale in Milan, receiving many awards for his iconic works.

Wormley is, without a doubt, one of the most influential Mid-century modern designers in history. His understated approach to design not only made him successful during his active years but continues to influence designers and scholars even today. He understood that furniture needed to be practical but also pleasant to the eye.

PRODUCT CARE

Care tips for classic furniture

Wood

  • Keep the furniture in a cool, dry place
  • Avoid furniture's direct exposure to rain, sun or wind
  • Avoid placing hot objects directly on the piece to prevent undesirable marks or permanent circles.
  • Avoid placing objects that may cause scratches to the surface
  • Clean using water only in small quantities and apply it with soft, damp cloth
  • After damp cloth wipe with a soft, dry cloth
  • You can use other liquids that are especially for cleaning wood furniture. Take into account the type of wood and follow the manufacturer's instructions

Marble

  • Avoid spilling fluids; these can be quickly absorbed by marble tops
  • Proceed to clean any stain immediately
  • Do not use cleaning substances with colorants as marble can absorb the color
  • Avoid placing hot objects directly on the marble and objects that cause scratches to the surface
  • Clean using water only in small quantities and apply it with soft, damp cloth
  • Always wipe with a soft, dry cloth of a neutral color
  • If further cleaning is required, use pH neutral soap. Any acid or alkaline products will degrade the surface
  • You can use other solvents that are specially designed to clean marble as long as you follow the manufacturer's instructions for the type of marble
