This coffee table was designed and produced in United Kingdom during the 1950's. This model was part of the "Utility Furniture" and it is marked underneath with the logo CC41, wich means “Controlled Commodity, 1941”. The Utility Furniture Advisory Committee was set up in 1942 in order to assure that the available resources were used efficiently. This range of furniture was aimed to meet the needs of newlyweds setting up households and victims of bombing who had lost their possessions during the war. This coffee table has the top in walnut and the legs in agba wood with a very simple and unique design, given by the crossed legs. It was completely restored.
