Edward J. Wormley

Edward J. Wormley

Born outside of Chicago, Illinois, Edward J. Wormley (1907-1995) was an American furniture and interior designer. He is best known for his long-lasting relationship with the Indiana-based Dunbar furniture company.

After World War II, Wormley set up a private practice in interior and furniture design with Dunbar as his primary client. He used wood and upholstery in a tailored way that appealed to an audience not ready for the austerity of International Style design.

Wormley’s Dunbar furniture was included in a number of “Good Design” exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He served as president of the American Designers Institute in 1941.
