This pair of elegant solid African teak Mid-Century side tables with shelf was manufactured by Imperial Furniture. Designed by the great Dutch designer, Jan Kuypers and manufactured Stratford, Ontario in the late 50's-early 60's. You will definitely appreciate the openness and sense of style. The top is composed of strips of thick, luxurious, solid Afromosia. This would is often called "African teak" for the stunning grain pattern which was similar to its relative, Burmese teak. Afromosia has an absolutely stunning deeper and darker colour when exposed to air. Each table features a handy solid African teak shelf for storage. Sitting raised up on 4 solid African teak legs, allows these tables to be sturdy on any surface. Fabulous proportions for its size.
