eBay watch: 1970s Howard Miller for MDA coffee table


In terms of classic British design, Merrow Associates is the most overpriced brand you'll find on eBay. Not that long ago, you would be able to pick up the main pieces in charity shops for modest prices. These days, even the most common design is pushing £1,000. Someone even has the cheek to be asking over £20 for a photocopied old catalogue. Yet similar labels are still much cheaper and of similar quality, as this Howard Miller for MDA coffee table shows.

At first glance, this is a Merrow Associates design, sharing the same industrial-style detailing as well as the chrome, rosewood and glass construction. Except this is actually the work of another British company operating at the same time and servicing the same market - Howard Miller of Miller Design Associates.

In 'excellent clean condition', it's on a buy it now of £295 or you can make an offer. There's also a trolley on eBay by the same maker for £175. If you like the look, but don't like the Merrow prices, it's a label worth seeking out...until everyone cottons on and the prices fly up.
