This Magnussen furniture review looks at the tables this wonderful company has crafted. Magnussen home furniture was founded during the Great Depression by Ingwer Magnussen in 1931 in Kitchener Ontario. He became in great demand by Canadian upholstered furniture manufacturers for his skills in carving beautiful exposed framework, such as the backs, legs and arms of the furniture.
It should come as no surprise, therefore, to discover that the company’s main products are crafted from solid wood, with beautifully carved and turned lags and pedestals. If you have a wish for your home furnishings to include this type of work, then Magnussen Home Furniture offers beautiful occasional pieces such as coffee and cocktail tables, end and sofa tables and also collections of beautiful bedroom furniture.
Here are some of the wonderful items of occasional tables included in the Magnussen range:
Magnussen Aidan Cocktails and Occasional Tables
The craftsmanship involved in creating Magnussen cocktails and occasional tables is exemplified by the Home Living Room Aiden Round End Table, standing 24″ high and with a 24″ diameter round tabletop. Crafted from solid hardwood, this occasional table is finished with a cherry veneer, topped with a beautiful reverse diamond veneer pattern, held by four beautifully carved concave legs.
A larger version is available in the form of the Aidan cocktail cabinet, matched with the end table but at 36″ diameter and 19″ high. Add to that the demilune side table, 48″ wide, 19″ deep and 28″ high, and you have a beautiful set of occasional tables in a beautiful cinnamon cherry veneer finish. This will look fabulous in any living room.
Magnussen Ferndale Tables
If you prefer a darker finish to your occasional tables, the Magnussen Ferndale range is finished in a water-marked tobacco shade. This range comes with raised edges and castors, providing an older fashioned look to your room. The cocktail table is 38 inches in diameter and if you are looking for a beautiful accent table to go with it, then that is finished to match in a 24″ triangular shape and standing 25″ high.
Densbury Occasional Tables
Magnussen’s Densbury Range is designed around a table top resting on turned architectural columns that are resting on a wooden base the same width as the top. Coming with a dark-stained finish, the rectangular cocktail table is substantial at 54″ wide and 34″ deep, and this beautiful collection would suit any living room, decorated in a modern or a retro style.
The Densbury collection also offers a sofa table that stands a useful 29″ high, and again 34″ long. If you prefer something smaller all round, then the Densbury collection also provides a rectangular end table at 26″ x 22″ and standing just 25″ high. This is generally high enough for accessing drinks, books and so on from the average sofa, although some might prefer the higher version offered by the sofa table.
If you prefer a smaller type of end table, then the same collection enables you to purchase a single pedestal end table at 20″ diameter and 24″ high. Each of these alternative occasional table designs are crafted using the same wood finish, and the same turned design of leg so that you can mix them without creating any mismatch in design or finish.
Magnussen Tables in General
Each of these collections has been designed to offer a timeless selection of occasional and accent table styles. Between them, they will fit perfectly into most living room decorative styles and you also have a range of different types of table to meet your specific needs. The pedestals and table legs are beautifully turned and offer a distinctive style to this furniture. The wood finishes are chosen to look in place with most modern and retro decorative styles.
There are no doubts that Magnussen furniture is constructed to last, and the occasional tables described above represent only a small part of the company’s range of home furniture.
