Tommi Parzinger - Antique vs New

It's always fun to find vintage pieces from great designers such as Tommi Parzinger (1903-1972). This 4-door commode was sold recently on Ist Dibs and isn't it beautiful!
The black lacquer cabinet is a Parzinger Original (see photo below) created in the 1950's. Parzinger was a German furniture designer who studied at the Munich School of Arts and Crafts, then eventually made his way to the United States. His reputation for luxurious furniture has created an audience of eager collectors and admirers.
While finding a Parzinger Original can be difficult, often when found, the price prohibits those with style from being able to afford such an eclectic look. However, take a look below at this dynamic piece from Worlds Away.
The Studly Buffet follows the Parzinger look and gives us modern design all over again.
Seen above in a room photo, this "commode" adds a certain flair to a room, without the 1st Dibs price. Now we can all have that vintage look!
