Things turn up when you least expect them to! This was the case for one of our latest finds!
Last week Janet and I took some time to do a little junkin' - we were not out looking for anything in particular and then WHAM - this beautiful classic french provincial table and chairs caught my eye!
Wow, it was pretty!!! Thoughts were running through my mind - boy wouldn't it look fabulous if we did this to it or that to it! AND... wouldn't it be a perfect replacement for MY dining room table and chairs!
It's not that dislike mine (it has a pretty beveled glass top on a ball & claw foot table frame is flanked with parson chairs) but my dream has been to redo everything on my next move. The problem is I'm not moving just yet, so this is probably a bit premature! Hum mm - what to do, what to do... Sell mine and keep the frenchy one or just keep what I have for now.
Anyway, we brought it home and began "surgery" right away! Meanwhile, the dilemma in my head continued! I loved it, I loved the way it could seat 6 people comfortably and seat up to maybe10 with the 3 leaves that came with it (yes, 3 leaves - can you believe it?). It didn't have but 4 original chairs, but you could add complementary chairs - 2 arm chairs or parson chairs at the head and maybe 2 matching chairs to fill in on each side when the table is fully extended! I'm thinking a mix of matching fabrics for seats and chair types. The look could be really neat!
The game plan is to leave the table top the original medium wood tone and re-upholster the chair seats in a neutral type fabric and maybe leave the chairs alone.
The jury is still out and I'm still trying to decide what to do keep it or sell it?
Or sell the new one?
Either way, her face lift will be complete by our Fall Sale! What do ya'll think?
A pair of Egyptian chairs by famed Danish architect and industrial designer, Finn Juhl! Known for his furniture designs, Juhl was one of the leading figures in the creation of "Danish design" in the 1940s and he was the designer who introduced Danish Modern to America.
The chairs are in great condition and were recently reupholstered in a retro print fabric.Frames are either rosewood or teak and show little wear.Each chair is signed and branded with manufacturer’s mark under the seat:cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, Copenhagen Demark, Designer – Finn Juhl.Circa 1940-1950s.
We hope they go to a collector's home where they will be cherished for what they are!
Any serious mid-century furniture collectors out there?
