Useful 1960s teak Austinsuite hall console table
British and Scandinavian makers didn’t design pieces of this size for use as console or hall tables , but today people are looking for them . This started as a dressing table , and Austinsuite made two versions on these legs , this one and another with 2 sets of drawers which as it gave more storage space was the more popular back in the 1960s . Today without its mirror ( which had already gone when we found it ) it makes a great hall or console table , or possibly that other rarely seen piece a serving table for a dining room .
We’ve cleaned and oiled the top and it’s looking good with no obvious marks , scratches etc . However as with all vintage pieces of this age you must expect to see some minor signs of use if you scrutinise them extremely closely .
It was probably one of Frank Guille’s designs for Austinsuite . Frank Guille ( 1926-1997 )was best known for his 1950s designs for Kandya . He also designed for Beithcraft before Val Rossi . He studied under Robin Day and also did some teaching . He deserves to be better known today .
