Walnut

A walnut table with two armchairs and four side chairs, two leaves that extend the table to 9 ft. and table pads that go under a tablecloth to protect it from heat. Based on our research, we believe it is Scandinavian. The extra leaves are very interesting because they are contained on a shelf on the underside of the table, so they don’t take up space in your closet, getting scratched up.  Also on the underside are two beautiful brass mechanisms that unlock the center of the table when you want to expand it.

Walnut table and 6 chairs (believed to be Scandinavian)

This table will make you look like a pro when hosting large parties. So much better than lining up a few small tables, differently shaped at different heights… We think you know what we mean! 6 ft. by 3.5 ft. with (2) 1.5 ft. leaves. $3,800 for the set of 6 chairs and the table with pads. SOLD
