PEGGY was launched in the 1957 catalogue as “The little table you can sit on”. Its low height of 41 cm meant it could double up as a stool, which was both sturdy and durable. Moreover, several tables could be stacked on top of each other. Further on in the same catalogue, the table appeared again in a set of three named PLUTO, with the call to “Put me wherever you want!”
The triangular table top was made by Skåne company Perstorp, which in 1950 had launched a new kind of laminated top that had an extremely durable surface.
Ingvar Kamprad wrote about PEGGY and PLUTO himself in the catalogue: “There are few things we would recommend more for your home. … A particularly sturdy and supported design means you can also use PLUTO as a stool. A brilliant idea you should definitely try.”
