This is definitely one of the more unusual dining room sets that we’ve had for sale on Mint! The most obvious thing that jumps out at you are those sculptural table legs, which almost look like they’re growing out of the ground. They’re made from solid wood, and while not the usual style that we’d go for, I think that they’re quite beautiful! The extendable table top is much more simple in design and is made from a veneer. On the whole the table’s in really good condition, but as is often the case, there’s a small patch where the veneer’s worn quite thin.
The matching chairs are also in really good condition, and as a result we’ve left the original vinyl, complete with brass studs, untouched – should you wish to recover the seats then we can put you in touch with a reasonably priced (and very skilled) upholsterer, so it wouldn’t be a mission to change the vinyl. Other than the studs, the chairs are also very simple, and I love the slanted backs, which really makes the chairs stand out. The lust-worthy Vamp in Cape Town recently had a set of brutalist chairs with the same slanting back – I wonder if there’s a chance that they could have been made by the same people?!
