About this item

1960's Remploy Bureau made in solid Teak featuring stylish atomic legs. All original. Features 3 large drawers with retro wooden handles. All the drawers are solid wood and this piece also has the original key with the 'Remploy' logo on it.

We have refurbished this by painting a modern linear design in 'Railings' by Farrow and Ball; then revamped the interior with lush dark green. Please note the interior is also sealed with clear varnish to further protect from spills.

We really love the sophisticated colour palette, has a classy, modern look and would sit well in a neutral or darker colour scheme; the geometrics are also bang on trend!

This would make a perfect little work space in a contemporary interior; the drawers are nice and large and the little cubby holes a nice addition; it has that upcycled look which is very popular in our homes at the moment.

In good vintage condition, the drawers all open smoothly. Original Remploy key included. The only thing of note is there are some small areas of wear around the handles and the teak lid has areas of natural patternation but thus reflects general wear for a piece of this age. Also please note this piece has a hand painted finish and has not been spray painted.

The dimensions are as follows;  

Height 101cm  

Depth 41.5cm  

Width 75cm
