Late 1950s Jaqueline Groag design Formica kitchen table
Jaqueline Groag was a successful textile designer who also designed a few successful patterns for Formica which were popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s for use on coffee tables and kitchen tables like this one . This one has one of her most successful designs and is known as Cityscape .
The table itself may have been made by Kandya who specialised in stylish expensive free-standing kitchen cabinets at the time , often designed by Frank Guille .
The table is in good vintage condition , but there are a few scratches to the Formica if you look very closely . Formica at this time was much thicker than it is today , so is very tough , and as this table is heavily patterned the scratches are not very obvious and won’t show up in photos . The metal frame is in good condition . The Formica is fixed to a nice quality thick laminated plywood top with shaped edge .
It will seat 4 , and is 89cms x 60cms
