Item of the Month - In Depth

Item Of The Month In Depth, October – Merrow & Associates Table

This month, I would like to shine a spotlight on a Merrow & Associates table that we have in stock. It is unusual in that it is on a hydraulic riser in order to adjust the height and is an irregular shape. It has a chrome base and the table itself is rosewood veneered. It dates to around 1968.

Merrow Associates was a British engineering company that branched into designing and making sideboards and cabinets in the 1960s. The quality of their work is technically unsurpassed, and so these are very much in demand. The company was started by Richard Young, who is a former Royal College of Art student who later studied at the Royal Art Academy Copenhagen under Professor Old Wansche. Richard Young is obsessed by quality and the kind of meticulous detailing typical of Scandinavian furniture of the 1950s. He uses beautifully finished glossy surfaces – a juxtaposition of rosewood, steel and glass – as substitutes for patina and marquetry. He trained as a cabinet maker, another reason why materials feature high in his design priorities. Distribution was restricted to specialist retailers. Heal`s and Harrods. Although the firms idiom is essentially traditional modern classic (they prefer to call it), Merrow Associates has proved that British workmanship, properly directed, matches Scandinavian.

For an example of some of their work and the prices they realise, you can visit them here:
