Dutch Coffee Table for Fristho in Teak 1960s
Fristho, coffee table, teak and stainless steel, The Netherlands, 1960s.
The rectangular top is made with teak veneer slats. The warm expression of the basic top beautifully contrasts to the thin tubular steel legs. At the end of the legs there are slightly tapered teak tips, that form a very refined detail. The well sized coffee table has a floating character, due to the inwards position of the legs. Due to the neutral design, it can be combined with different styles of seating elements. A wonderful piece that will contribute to the luxury in any living room or lobby. Marked with Fristho label on the bottom.
