1970s rosewood and chrome nesting tables probably designed by Richard Young for Merrow Associates. Each top veneered in beautifully figured Rosewood veneers, laid onto mahogany, an indication of the quality and craftsmanship of these tables. The largest table "top" having twin drop leaves so it can be extended circa 1970
Merrow Associates 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 Ole Wanscher. 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.
Condition: This nest of tables are in fantastic condition. The tops have been re-polished
