Reversible Teak & Formica Coffee Table by Ole Wanscher for Poul Jeppesen, Signed

About the Item

A classic 1960s reversible coffee table by Ole Wanscher for Poul Jeppesen, which can also be used as an end table, side table or occasional table. Also, with the clever use of Formica for one side of the tabletop, consider using in a kids room - think of the many uses such as chalk for the black Formica side. Excellent example of Danish Modern design, perfect for the interior designer who is buying for a collector client or the client who just wants organic beauty in their home mixed with clever design features that improve and simplify home life. This ingenious square table by Ole Wanscher is crafted from teak. The reversible top is teak on one side and black Formica on the other. You can simply pull it up, flip it over, and put it back down to change the use and style. For example, you have guests coming to watch the big game, flip it over on the Formica side and open a bag of chips and a six pack of beer. When your guests leave, flip it back over onto the teak side. *Note, we had 2 tables but one has sold so only one table is left, price in this listing is for one table. The reversible top sits on top of 4 solid teak cylindrical legs with matching and alternating cross supports. Signed with Danish Control and PJ / Ole Wanscher Design tags. Consider using this beautiful pair of coffee / side / end / occasional tables in a Mid-Century Modern or Post-Modern home, also consider for a Traditional, Classical or Contemporary home or office. Measurements: H 17" x W 31.5" x D 31.5" Condition: Very good original condition, ready to be used immediately. Excellent example for the Danish modern collector or appreciator.
