Poul Cadovius 1960s teak floating Cado System desk
Great for a home office or even in a bedroom with a mirror for use as a dressing table
Poul Cadovius systems are always fabulous quality, and all it needed was a light clean and oil after about 50 years of use. We bought it along with a larger Cado system and an Ulferts sideboard from the house of the original owner who had had it since new.
It does need to be hung on a structural wall as its heavy even before putting anything in it. Have a look at the blog we’ve written on our www.pureimaginations.co.uk website and at the larger system we’ve just listed as this will show how these 3 pieces are hung from a wall.
Each section is 80cms wide, so a total of 240cms in length . The teak upright battens it sits upon have been cut so that the whole set just seems to float from the wall.
Cado systems were about 25% more expensive when new , which was a big enough extra cost to mean that it wasn’t bought in large amounts, so is not seen that often. We think this is one of the smartest sets we’ve seen for sale recently.
Dimensions: Each bay measures 80cm, deepest unit 46cm
