I bought this side table about 3 months ago at a thrift store on the West side of town. The first time I saw it I fell for it, HARD, but it was $80! I kept visiting it every week or so and watched the price drop until it finally hit a suitably low price that my almost unemployed wallet could afford.
This side table (or lamp table) was made by the Morganton Furniture Company, of Morganton North Carolina, probably around 1957-60. Morganton was a high quality furniture manufacturer established in the 1920; they were purchased by Drexel in 1957 but continued to produce their own designs until 1960 when Drexel shuttered the company.
Handsome lil' bugger isn't it? I really love the floating drawer box.
and those upturned edges are super sexy. The top only has a couple of small dents, so all this needed was a little Feed & Wax.
