An unusually slick and, gorgeous danish modern, mid century teak dining set from 60s, consisting of clean-lined, self storing leaf, expandable teak table with nicely figured grains and 6 dynamically sculpted, Low back teak dining chairs in very popular style. The table has slick profile, accentuated by 4 strong, tapered legs. It has 2 leaves stored under the main table top, which slide out when needed within seconds. No need to store leaves somewhere else and hunt down for them when actually needed! Made in Denmark. The table top appears to gently floating over the base when leaves are out. The chair sets features super sharp design, stream-lined profile with low back, which accentuate the sense of spaciousness in the dining room. The gently sculpted backs feature unique, narrow "slit" design that is not seen any other Scandinavian examples, giving this set a very modern look. This set works very well with any contemporary deco as well as mid century deco. Named affectionately, The "Cylon" chair! :) The overall chair design remind profiles of some of the JL Mollers popular dining chairs, but these are made by Svegard Markyrad, a high quality furniture maker of Sweden in 60s. Svegard was well known for its quality of pieces, but some of theirs were a bit more conservative than danish designer pieces of 60s. This chair set is a stellar exception, matching or surpassing its danish cousins in both dynamic profile and sculptural quality. This set is very HARD-TO-Find. We found barely a couple of other examples of this chair upon on-line research, no other example available for sale at the moment. The chairs are just reupholstered with brand new beautiful thick, grey linen fabric with slight tint of teal, which helps to bring out the beauty of the teak finish.. At the same time, since it is neutral gray, it works well with any color of deco. Very sharp looking, modern fabric that complement the look of the set perfectly. If buyer has some other upholstery in mind we offer professional reupholstery of the seats with fabric of buyers choice at super low fee. The table measures 54L 37W and 28.5H. With two 20" leaves hidden, it seats 6 comfortably. Not overly large or too wide and will fit most of dining space. With leaves out, around 94" Long and easily sits 10.. Very nice looking with leafs out in a good sized dining space, with appearance of gently floating top and leafs.
