price upon request

SOLD
A stunning coffee table designed by Johannes Andersen, manufactured by Silkeborg Møbelfabrik in Denmark around 1960. The table is made of high quality tropical hardwood in a beautiful elegant shape. The warm brown colour of the wood makes it a very nice piece to compliment any interior and create warmth and luxury in the decor. It has slightly tapered legs and subtlely slanted sides of the top. This wonderful finish and beautiful eye for quality are signs of great craftsmanship, as can be expected of quality vintage Scandinavian piece. It remains in good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Johannes Andersen (1903-1991) was born in Denmark. In 1922 he had served his apprenticeship and got his certificate as a skilled cabinet maker and he worked for several years in various workshops. Gradually over these years Johannes designed more and more pieces of furniture, and in the middle of the 1930s he started his own architectural workshop. Danish furniture began to be internationally reputed. Johannes also got appointments with Swedish and Norwegian furniture factories. But the great Boom was for him when the Danish working class during the late 1950s and up through the 1960s began to get better off and move into new houses and buy new furniture. Johannes’ best known designs are coffee table in a almost innumerable variations. So when Johannes at the age of more than 80 closed down his drawing office he had become a worldwide known and appreciated furniture designer.
