Stylish early 1960s teak and Formica sideboard by CWS
Really nice feature is the “hidden” Formica fronted drawers that just look like a decorative detail . CWS better known as the Co-Op had a couple of very large furniture factories in the 1950s and 1960s churning out very traditional pieces , but occasionally they produced something really unusual like this lovely model and another contemporary sideboard that also comes up for sale very occasionally . At the moment we haven’t found out who the designer is , but whoever they are they’re very accomplished . See our blog about the 2 models
The grey and white Formica has a stylish pattern reminiscent of designs by Jacqueline Groag and is in lovely vintage condition . The teak to the front has a particularly nice grain . The teak has been cleaned and oiled and some slight damage to the back of the top has been repaired so it looks really great . The base is light beech rather than teak and this gives a nice contrast with the teak veneers .
It’s 183cms long , 83cms high and 43cms deep .
