Early mid-century modern Danish teak coffee table. The original, vintage 1950s, coffee table has a deep brown patina garnered from age. One could easily mistake the aged teak for walnut or even rosewood. This table has some unique features that depart from classical Danish design. The simple rectangular table’s only embellishment resides on its legs. Danish furniture typically features pencil turned or square legs. These legs are tapered squares with a unique contoured ridge running down the center. This traditional element seldom seen on Danish modern furniture. The foot is punctuated with a lighter tone of teak. They say love is in the details. These elements were gingerly implemented to enhance, rather than distract, from the minimalist form and fine materials.
The table had one owner before coming into our possession. Dated at over 60 years of age, and in near impeccable original condition. This was a piece that was protected and cherished.
