Mid-Century Modern Mayan Etagere by Arthur Umanoff

Overview of the Arthur Umanoff Mayan Etagere

Furniture that is functional, well-made, yet full of personality is a dying breed. That’s why we saved this mid-century modern iron Arthur Umanoff etagere (with smiling sun face!) from the dust bin of history. The unit radiates plenty of all of those endearing, critical qualities. The piece was designed by Umanoff for Shaver Howard, for what’s called, the “Mayan” line. It is structurally built like a tank; constructed of a heavy black iron frame makes it sturdy enough to hold wine bottles, yet they still look tall and delicate.  The rattan is surprisingly intact and the wood grain and white laminate shelves and unblemished and help to balance out all that dark metal. You can’t help but smile back at that bold sun! While the piece is not marked, Shaver Howard’s Mayan line is well documented and just a Google search away.
