1950s Mid Century Kandya Teak and Glass Dressing Table or Desk.
A beautiful and very rare vintage teak dressing table with a glass top and large trio of adjustable mirrors, with a matching stool by Kandya, one of Britain's leading 20th Century, design-focussed furniture manufacturers.
Kandya was one of the first British Furniture companies to enter the post-war years employing the cream of British designers, paving the way for Britain's Modernist design wave - Carl Jacobs and Frank Guille being the most prominent and possibly one of the designers of this piece.
This dressing table, in design, fuses the warmth of pre-Modernist soft oak/light teak tones and 1950s sharp design of the glass top and mirrors.
Despite being 70 years old, this piece of mid-century bedroom furniture is of exceptional quality and is in excellent condition, having been professionally refinished. The warm, flecked teak grain has been coated with a clear, durable satin lacquer to ensure it will be a quality furniture piece for many years to come. The matching stool is upholstered in its original velour light brown fabric and the padding is still in excellent vintage condition. It is easily reupholstered for your colour taste.
The dressing table has spacious storage with six drawers, the top right-hand drawer is lined in black velvet for a touch of luxury.
It could also serve a dual purpose as a writing desk with the tabletop at 71cm high and a spacious knee hole - ideal for anyone with limited space. The mirror can be removed for use solely as a desk.
Today, Kandya furniture is very much in demand and understandably so. A fine piece of streamlined British vintage design that will add something special to modern interiors.
