Furniture That Looks Good From All Angles

Slowly! Slowly! It's too nice a job to rush.

Hey there, pretty sofa. Whoa, slow down! I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave.

Lately, I’ve been noticing a trend in furniture that has it looking good from all angles. Chairs that look as good from the front as they do from the back and the front, credenzas that look beautiful from the side, and desks with a surprise in the back. Here are a few of the best examples.

  • Hendrix Desk from the Front 1 of 8
    Hendrix Desk from the Front
    This appears to be a nice, straightforward desk. A little detail in the legs, rough hewn drawer fronts, and a nice shape. But look around back…
  • Hendrix Desk from the Back 2 of 8
    Hendrix Desk from the Back
    Secret bookshelf! This desk calls out to be placed, commanding style, in the center of a room.
    Available from Crate & Barrel, $1500.
  • Raleigh Armchair from the Front 3 of 8
    Raleigh Armchair from the Front
    Nice little chair. Good proportions, clean mid-century vibe… I like it. But wait, what's that view from the side?
  • Raleigh Armchair from the Side 4 of 8
    Raleigh Armchair from the Side
    Saucy minx! Your legs are sticking out!
    Available from DWR, $2800.
  • Raleigh Sofa from the Front 5 of 8
    Raleigh Sofa from the Front
    Quite like the little chair that preceded it, this sofa has nice proportions and mid-century styling. Then you amble around back…
  • Raleigh Sofa from the Back 6 of 8
    Raleigh Sofa from the Back
    Bam! Exposed wood framing. That's hot.
    Available from DWR, $3800.
  • Bond Console from the Front 7 of 8
    Bond Console from the Front
    Burled wood and lucite — not a combination often seen, but it's good. How does it look from another angle, you ask…
  • Bond Console from the Side 8 of 8
    Bond Console from the Side
    "Minimal, glamorous, twinkly. Just like you!"
    Available from Jonathan Adler, $3800.
