Retro Danish Walnut Room Divider - Living Room - Living Room
Walnut Room Divider / Wall Unit with Bar (CS61)
Walnut Room Divider / Wall Unit with Bar.
This is a big, beautiful, Danish-style room divider in rich, warm walnut. It is finished on both sides, so it can be used against the wall as a bookcase or in the middle of the room as a divider. The door on the top compartment flips down on a piano hinge to form a bar or desk with an adjustable shelf. The flip-down door has black laminate on the backside to resist spills. Below the bar are two dove-tailed drawers and a compartment with another adjustable shelf. The open shelf to the left of the bar is also adjustable / removable.
The tag on the inside is labelled Englander Triangle. This was a high-end chain of furniture stores in Michigan. I have seen this same room divider with labels from other mid-century era furniture stores. It was common at the time for regional retailers to self-brand pieces that were distributed to a variety of similar stores across the country.
This piece is in good vintage condition. It has a rich patina from age that really makes the wood look beautiful. There are a few minor nicks and wear, but they are not distracting. There is one faint water ring on one of the shelves. Please review all photos to see the condition of this piece.
