Reversible furniture

Over at Mid-Century Modernist I saw a beautiful reversible table that is for sale via Modernicus.com. Our teak coffee table is a similar design, and I love the idea. It's very practical as well as versatile. Another great detail on this table is the woven black string shelf, which holds books and magazines. I don't know who designed my table, but I guess it's Danish. I'm certain it's Scandinavian. I bought it in a second hand design store years ago.

In our livingroom we have other reversible furniture, like the round tray table on wheels. The trays are white on one side and black on the other and the stand can easily be collapsed. It is a great extra table when entertaining. This we bought new. I think they are still in production, maybe not in teak, but I know I have seen it in a blonder wood recently. It's labelled Krüger Made in Denmark.

My last piece in this series, is a side table. I got this at a local flee market for nok 100 (about $18). I was well pleased! It's a bit worn on top and one of the doors has a long blondt streak, but I still think it's a great piece. The sliding doors have black padded insets on one side. We had it like that for a long time, but now I prefer it all wooden, despite the streak. Again, I don't know who designed it, but the brass locking mechanism on the doors indicates that it could be Swedish.

Great compilation, Janne. I enjoy the round side table, especially.

Such great stuff, Janne! I am a bit jealous. The reversible idea is great for those times when you just want to shake things up a bit without investing in new pieces. And the sideboard for $18!!!! How lucky you were! I don't mind the blond streak a bit...especially at that price :)
