eBay watch: 1960s G-Plan Astro circular coffee table

Astro

We have featured one of these in the past, but as this G-Plan Astro coffee table is going cheap right now, it is well worth flagging up once more.

It's one of the classics from the G-Plan golden age, a coffee table made in the midcentury style back in the 1960s, with this curved wood frame made of teak, topped off with a safety glass surface.

British-made (and to a high standard), this Astro coffee table is currently at a bargain £1.24.

For sale: 1960s Arthur A J Marshman-designed Horton Rounds circular house in Horton, Northamptonshire
