It has been nearly 35 years since the auction of fittings from the ss United States. While the ship overall might have felt a bit antiseptic, especially in third-class, her furniture, when taken out of the vessel and seen as individual pieces, is quite nice. This cocktail table from cabin U-46 is a great example. They have a lot of mid-century style and would go well in nearly any room of your home. Really nice furniture from her doesn’t become available very often! Table measures 31″ x 15″ x 18″ tall and is marked with a metal tag underneath giving the cabin number from which the table comes.
I have often noted how much of her interiors were like an ocean-going Holiday Inn of the 1950’s. As a side note, I went to the Holiday Inn Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, over 20 years ago, and they had a complete 1955 mock-up of a room. I still find myself struck by the similarities.
