Qualities of Dansette coffee tables

Typically, Dansette coffee tables exhibit the features you would associate with much of the furniture made in the 1950 and 60s. After World War II, many traditional furniture materials were in short supply, so more minimalist design styles and different types of industrial materials were used to create pieces that were more basic, yet no less stylish or durable.

The traditional Dansette coffee table is in a simple style that is reminiscent of Danish Modern design. This evolved into the minimalist Scandi furniture design that we know well to this day. Many Dansette coffee tables are crafted from polished popular hardwoods such as Teak, and have screw-on legs. They are lightweight, elegant and easy to move around should you want to change the layout of your room.

Whether you choose to feature your Dansette coffee table as a statement piece in a bedroom, or to display lighting, plants or ornaments in your living area, this versatile item is an effortless way to bring classic mid-century style and minimalism to both a modern and a classic interior look.
