60s Chippy Heath Teak Telephone Table Bench with Drawers


A beautifully designed and crafted telephone seat with a real obvious Scandinavian influence, manufactured by ‘Chippy Heath’ in Great Britain.

An original, vintage 1960’s telephone table manufactured by Chippy Heath,
the most prolific maker of mid century telephone tables. This is a beautiful piece of retro furniture and oozes mid century style. Gorgeous legs, simplicity of design, this stylish little table has everything going for it, with
a solid teak wood frame and complementing teak veneers. Sitting alongside is the seat which was a little worse for wear, this is with our upholsterer at the moment so will have new foam and new fabric, we have shown a photo of the fabric to be used on the new cushion.

There are two drawers, the top drawer has the label on the inside; dovetail joints on the drawers show quality of manufacture, both are clean and run smoothly There is some obvious visual wear to this piece, the front two legs have been dinted and chipped as shown in the photos; all other wear is only what you would expect from something well used and loved from the 60s.

This little Chippy has an elegant shaped teak framework with an open back area and swooping armrest.
Whilst redundant as a telephone table, this would still look great in a hallway, as an end table or bedside - a great addition to your retro home!

Unlike the other major manufacturers (Nathan and Ercol), Chippy Heath, based in High Wycombe, England, seemed to specialise in the manufacture of telephone tables, so if you are strangely drawn to mid century furniture, choose a Chippy to chat on!

Our Delivery Policy
Safely delivering items you purchase in a timely fashion is both our priority and also one of the most challenging aspects of our business.
In most circumstances, we offer free hand delivery (plus any associated fees), contact-free, to most mainland UK addresses, either by ourselves or via our dedicated, trusted, couriers. This ensures that your purchases arrive in exactly the condition they were in when you purchased them, as accurately described on our site. You should expect delivery to be within 1 to 3 weeks of you placing the order. We will contact you directly with a firm delivery date and advise you in advance of a two hour delivery window. Free delivery does not apply to areas of mainland UK not covered by our trusted couriers - if this applies to your purchase, we will simply charge you what we are charged for delivery, less any Etsy fees, and notify you of this as soon a practicable after the sale goes through, giving you the option of a full refund.
We are able to package and export items beyond mainland UK and have done so as far afield as Hong Kong and New Zealand. We regularly export to Northern Ireland and Eire and the majority of Europe. Please contact us directly for a tailored quotation.
