Flexible Home Arrangements was a landmark collection, significantly influencing the lexicon of American production furniture. Produced in Grand Rapids by premium manufacturer Johnson Furniture, many items in the collection include a dimension at 20”W by 30”H, thus creating maximum flexibility in home design by combining multiple pieces into one configuration. Our cabinet maintains the 20”D and the flexibility of the collection as shown in this 1939 catalog photo.
