Description

A Danish dining table, beautifully crafted from teak. This is one of the most elegant dining tables we have seen from Danish designer Johannes Andersen. Danish furniture maker Christian Linneberg exemplified simple, organic Scandinavian style and this is evident in this gorgeous mid century table. This design, from Andersen, marks a high point in the company’s history. Every detail has been considered and this vintage Scandinavian dining table extends via two additional leaves to seat 8 or 10, when required. Design highlight include the banding around the edge of the table top, the attractive ‘rebate’ that runs below and the beautiful manner in which the tops of the legs are sculpted into the table’s top.

While information on designer Johannes Andersen is limited and difficult to verify, it is believed that he was born in 1903 in Aarhus, Denmark, and that he initially apprenticed as a cabinetmaker. He went on to work for many years in a number of workshops before opening his own architectural and furniture workshop in the 1930s. Andersen’s designs span seating, tables, and storage in well-crafted materials, such as rosewood and teak. His career paralleled the midcentury’s growing appreciation for Danish furniture designs, and he attracted international attention—particularly for coffee tables like the highly sculptural Smile Table.
Andersen worked steadily for his own firm—as well as Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian companies such as Trensum, CFC Silkeborg, Bramin, and Uldum Møbelfabrik—until he closed his shop in his eighties. He passed away in 1991.

The additional leaves can be deployed separately or together and, when not in use, store conveniently in a shelf hidden beneath the table top.

Table: W165 x H72 x D90cm (Width extends to both 215cm and 265cm)
