We picked up a lovely little piece of furniture recently – this Chippy telephone table made in the 1960s.
Made of teak, it has cool, mid century modern looks. There’s a main cubbyhole which would have housed the big telephone directory – remember those? A neat, green leatherette pull-out stool sits underneath – also a small drawer and a ‘Memory Slide’ for jotting down phone numbers.
The rise of mobile phones & Skype calls have reduced the need for landlines, but most people still have them. If your phone is balanced precariously on a windowsill or pile of magazines, this could be just the thing… and the absolute perfect home for a vintage phone if you have one. We’ve just put it in our antiques centre pitch – let us know if you’re interested.
