Retro Coffee/End Table

R1,200.00

I think a lot of people would probably not pay too much attention to today’s table – it’s quite small and very plain looking – but for me it’s the simplicity of the design that’s so appealing. And I was immediately drawn to the table legs which are made of cast aluminium – it’s a look that I’ve seen used often in mid-century designs. In fact the shape of the base on today’s table looks a lot like that of a Charles and Ray Eames dinette table that’s currently for sale on 1stdibs.com. That table has a chrome base, but a lot of other Eames tables, or tables from that era, used aluminium bases – to get an idea of what I’m talking about check out this Eames slate and aluminum coffee table that’s also for sale on 1stdibs.

So there’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is a proper period piece, but even if it wasn’t it’s still a very handsome table! It’s quite low though, and not massive, so will need just the right place in your home to be properly appreciated – the elderly lady I bought it from had it set against a wall at the end of her couch, and it looked fantastic!
