Kandya Furniture Catalogue

Laid to rest in the back of a drawer, we recently unearthed a fascinating collection of early 1960's furniture catalogues from a retro sideboard.

With these catalogues completely forgotten about by their owner, it's intriguing to think how the contemporary products within have been superseded by a generation of melamine and regency reproduction furniture throughout the 80's and 90's but once again soared in desirability and become collectors' pieces.

This Kandya Furniture Catalogue from 1961 exhibits furniture by designers Carl Jacobs, Harry Sowden & Frank Guille. Surely these guys couldn't have foreseen such a tremendous resurgence in their designs' popularity with dealers and collectors alike travelling far and wide to source good examples of their pieces (me included)!

A wide range of 'Trimma Cabinets' was available to design your perfect bespoke kitchen. Formica colour swatch also included in the catalogue.
