1960s Europa Chest Of Drawers

This substantial piece was manufactured by Harris Lebus of London, and designed by Danish born Cyril Rostgaard as part of their ‘Europa’ range. The chest is constructed from a combination of solid teak (handles & base) and teak veneer/formica – truly ground breaking in its day! It consists of a bank of 9 drawers which feature beautifully scalloped teak handles & the main body of the chest sits on a ‘sleigh’ leg base. Veneer has a tendency to chip so I was surprised to find it in such good order – I spent a bit of time scrubbing out a couple of sticky marks & removing several paint specs but otherwise it was all set for its photo shoot!
