Description

This was my first coffee table that my husband and I purchased in Sears Department Store around 1975 and the company producing it was called James David. Well…….not this exact one. We recently found this one on a treasure hunting excursion. Ours was given to our son to use when he moved out and I’m not sure where it ended up. In researching this table I have only found two mentions of the James David furniture company. Once in an article in the Chicago Tribune dated April 13, 1979 titled Put-together Furniture, where they were touted as having “contemporary lifestyle furniture that assembles quickly and easily”;” it comes in packages and can be easily put together at home”. It seems they were the precursor to Ikea! And once in an article in The Washington Post dated November 16, 1980 titled Furnishing the ‘Elegant Eighties’ where they were described as “James David, who makes mobile furniture….” If anyone knows more about this company I would love to learn. Anyway, this is a fun and simple coffee table consisting of a tubular chrome frame of four 1.5 inch vertical legs with ½ inch stretchers attached with allen screws; and a ¼ inch glass top which inserts into four black plastic plugs that cap off the four chrome legs. It is in fabulous vintage condition and ready to use. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this table as we did!
