Kandya 50s Retro Red Formica Kitchen Dining Table Desk


This fabulous 50s retro red formica table was possibly designed by Guille and manufactured for Kandya, rectangular in shape offering compact and practical seating for 1 or 4. A red and black patterned formica top with white edging is paired with the simple beech legs, really making this table stand out.

If you’re a fan of Mid Century aesthetics this is the table for you!

In general good condition for its age, the wooden legs and frame have been lightly sanded back and re-finished. There are some minor signs of wear including scuffs and dints. The top itself has the usual surface wear including some minor chipping and nibbling to the outer edges of the formica, along with light surface scratching and markings, but the table is solid and sturdy with formica firmly intact and the edging in good order. (There is a small gap where it joins, this is normal). We’ve tried our best to photograph all these flaws, however reflections to the formica top make it a little tricky!

To the underside of the table you can see the the original Kandya label.

The legs on this table could possibly be removed for ease of delivery so some assembly may be required on receiving this piece.

Frank Guille was one of the known designers for this manufacturer. Guille’s furniture designs were led by his belief in functionality, utility and simplicity. His elegant furniture was visually simple and refined, taking commissions from the likes of Heals and Kandya Ltd.

The table has been photographed with a pair of vintage Quitmann chairs similar to what might have accompanied the table - these are not included but are listed separately; we have other kitchen/dining chairs and stools that might suit this style and period of table, just check out our other listings. We will always try to discount on multiple purchases, just message us !
