Danish Midcentury Teak Farstrup Extending Dining Table with Four Chairs
Made in Denmark by Farstrup this outstanding dining table and chair set is a find. Comprised of a solid teak, rectangular extending table and four accompanying dining chairs, it’s classic midcentury design. Extended, the table can seat 6-8 or for every day use it’s a table that comfortably seats four. The table’s stand out feature in our view are the legs. With a central column and elongated feet they are a statement. Look beyond the rather tired pink velvet upholstery and you can appreciate that these are particularly handsome dining chairs, obviously Scandinavian with clean lines, beautiful wood and generous proportions. This is a terrifically well-made, solid wood set in fantastic vintage condition; both the design and construction have stood the test of time well and it would be a great fit for any modern kitchen or dining room, combining good looks with practicality.

This is an original set that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall good – very good, used condition. The table has been cleaned and a natural beeswax polish applied but otherwise the original, high sheen finish has been left well alone. There are some minor marks and scuffs as we would expect to see on a table of this age. There is a small lighter patch on one of the edges and a few other scratches we’ve highlighted in our photos but when viewed overall, you can appreciate that these are light, superficial areas that aren’t particularly noticeable. There are clips underneath the table to keep the two halves securely in place. The extension is an entirely separate piece. To fit in position the clips are released and the halves pulled apart. The extension is slotted into position, the halves closed and the slips secured once more. The mechanism is in very good order and moves freely, with ease. When extended the table could seat up to eight people. This solid teak table is very well made, substantial and with no signs of repair. The maker’s label is affixed underneath. Note: this table is a very heavy piece. Please be mindful of this when considering it in your home.
The chairs are in overall good condition. The solid teak frames have been carefully cleaned and a natural beeswax polish applied. The wood itself is in excellent condition with only very light scuffs and marks with age and use. All four chairs are wobble-free and show no signs of repair. The original pink velvet upholstery does need updating at some point. Although not threadbare or heavily stained, it’s rather tired with some grubbiness from use, to be expected with a pale colour fabric. Please refer to our photos. Replacing or recovering these chairs would be a straightforward and easy job for an experienced upholsterer, and could be undertaken by a hobbyist too. The ‘Made in Denmark Farstrup’ label can be found on the underside of three of the four chairs.
