La Permanente Mobili Cantù drawer cabinet Italy 1950





This elegant drawer console or desk table, designed and manufactured by Permanente Cantu in Italy during the 1950s, exemplifies the exquisite craftsmanship and sophisticated design for which Cantu is renowned. Constructed from beautifully grained rosewood, the table features a refined, elegant shape that highlights the natural beauty of the wood. The design includes brass detailed feet on the legs, adding a touch of opulence and ensuring stability. Functionality meets aesthetics with four large drawers on the left and two smaller ones on the right, providing ample storage space. Each drawer is adorned with darker tanned handles, offering a subtle yet striking contrast against the rich rosewood.


A unique glass top with a distinct form complements the overall shape of the piece, enhancing its visual appeal while providing a durable and practical surface. The console is in good original condition, with normal age-related wear that adds character without compromising its integrity. Notably, the glass top remains free from any damages. Please note that while the chair displayed with this console is not included, it is available for purchase separately. This mid-century piece by Permanente Cantu is perfect for adding a touch of vintage Italian elegance to any space.
