Object ID #907130353

This is a Sideboard. It was designed by Kem (Karl Emanuel Martin) Weber. It is dated 1928–29. Its medium is sage green painted wood.

This chair and sideboard combine the linear impact of modern design with the soothing sage green color popular in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Here Weber references the shape and appearance of kitchen cabinetry. The Kem Weber Group was one of the designer's first projects for serial manufacture.

It is credited Lent by The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Mary Spedding Milliken Memorial Fund, 2003.4.2.
