Useful 1960s teak Austinsuite hall console table

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 .
