ABOUT

Oh La La!!! This is an incredible piece of mid-century-modern furniture from England. This awesome vanity is  part of the Tola bedroom furniture line and Meredew Design ’62 by Meredew furniture manufacturers which were based in Letchworth England for over 75 years. This line is attributed to Alphons Loebenstein. Alphons was the first staff designer for Meredew and was hired after the war. He was 57 at the time, a German emigree, and his ideas revolutionized Meredew as he persuaded them to abandon traditional design and embrace modern unit furniture. Talk about a great piece of furniture with lots of sass and style. This is it. Consisting of a long lean cabinet with two center drawers with doored storage on either side which is lifted off the floor by lovely legs, topped with a tri-fold mirror and finished in high gloss. The bottom of the cabinet curves upward ever so slightly adding to its graceful design. There are some age cracks or crazing to the finish of the top and the mirror glass shows its age with minor desilvering; but, otherwise it is in wonderful age appropriate condition. We do have two other pieces from this set listed, the wardrobe and a wonderful chest of drawers. This line was produced in a range of woods including: natural oak, natural oak with sycamore, walnut, meremat, merepol walnut, and merepol Canadian elm. We feel this is one of the walnuts but can’t be sure which. We can be sure it is an awesome piece of mid-century modern English furniture and would look wonderful wherever you decide to use it.
