Best vintage mid-century modern teak furniture
You may think that Denmark’s main export is Lego and pastries, but it’s actually vintage teak furniture. Here’s a sneak peek at all the teak on Used.ca.
A few years ago a relative gave me a wood frame couch from their old office. I thought it made great patio furniture until a neighbour scolded me for having a teak mid-century modern couch outside in the sun! It’s faded a little and the wood is a bit rough to the touch, but now it’s back inside recuperating.
As an apology to the Danish furniture makers, I’ve replaced the deteriorating foam inside the vintage orange cushions and next I’ll be treating the couch to a teak oil massage.
In the past year some 80,000 people have searched for teak, and more than 20,000 people have searched for mid-century modern furniture on the Used.ca sites. Suddenly I feel the weight of these 100,000 people judging me for my furniture abuse!
Here’s what we found on our sites this month:
Vintage 1960s mid century modern teak chairs
Teak sofa and dining chair
*Today I learned that Naugahyde is a brand of pleather popular in the 1960s.
Vintage 1950’s Hi-Fi
Mid century modern teak sunburst/starburst clock
Vintage nesting tables
