Stag C range dressing table by john and sylvia reid with its original stool and sheep skin covering
Stag 'C' range
The first project John and Sylvia Reid did for Stag was a new range of bedroom furniture called Cumberland. They took functionalist principles to their logical conclusion and designed a range of furniture that was cheap to mass produce, but was of high quality. There was no pretence that this new furniture was handmade by craftsmen; it was built by machine and was meant to look like it. Here we have A very stylish and scarcely seen 1950's modernist dressing table designed by architect couple John & Sylvia Reid for Stag Furniture as part of their much sought after 'Cumberland' 'C' range. The dressing table features two floating pedestals, with three large drawers in each. The pedestals are joined by a black melamine-topped surface which houses a central drawer. There is an adjustable full length mirror above the table . Originally designed as part of a modular bedroom system intended for young forward thinking homes in the 1950s, the 'C' range was finished in either oak or Australian walnut (this piece being in walnut with ebonised detailing).The Item will work equally well as a dressing table or laptop desk (the mirror is easily removable).A dressing table that would bring a touch of classic mid century style to any interior space.
