SOLD--Pair of Danish Mid-Century Modern Side Tables by Poul M. Volter

0.00

A pair of Mid-Century Modern end tables in oak designed by Danish furniture designer, Poul M. Volter, of rectangular form, with two drawers, each with wonderfully simple and functional oak tab pulls, raised on four cylindrical tapering legs, retaining their original soap finish (which protects the wood while preserving its natural color), circa 1960s. We think these diminutive side tables would be perfect next to individual club chairs, flanking a sofa or used as night tables for a low, platform bed.

Height: 18 5/8” Width: 17 5/8” Depth: 11 13/16”

First trained as a cabinetmaker, Volther studied furniture design at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen. A believer in Functionalism, he avoided passing style trends and focussed instead on creating furniture that was simply crafted of high quality materials. As a teacher at Denmark's Design School, he encouraged hundreds of students to produce high quality craftsmanship. With the support of designer Hans Wegner, he was employed from 1949 by the cooperative FDB, working in their design studio under the leadship of Børge Mogensen.
