Vintage Midcentury Danish Glostrup Extending Dining Table & Four Dining Chairs
An absolutely stunning dining set from furniture maker, Glostrup Møbelfabrik of Denmark. Made in the late sixties / early seventies, their designs from this period were expertly crafted in the finest quality, solid teak with the wood patina taking centre-stage. The design is clean and parred back but with subtle flourishes, like the curve underneath the rim of the table top, echoed in the backs of the chairs. This set, comprised of five pieces – a large dining table and four accompanying chairs – is in superb, vintage condition. The table extends to three width settings and at its maximum could seat 8-10 people. The two insert leaves are self-storing underneath. The four chairs in this set are particularly interesting and rather enigmatic. We believe they may be rare models. We know they were made by Glostrup, featuring the same leg design as other models from this period and they match the table too, but we can’t find them elsewhere. They have the most handsome design with a curved top and contoured back, again, constructed with the most outstanding craftsmanship. The seat proportions are generous and they are very comfortable. An exceptional, attributed Danish midcentury set.
This is an authentic, vintage dining set that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent, used condition. The table has been thoroughly cleaned, refinished and polished. It’s made from solid teak and as such is very substantial and heavy. The two extending leaves stow beneath the table and it can be extended with one insert or with both to take it to its maximum width. As you can see from our photos the condition is outstanding with only very minor signs of use and wear. The mechanism to extend the table moves with ease and ins in good working order. The original Glostrup label is still affixed. All four chairs are in excellent condition, solidly made and sturdy. There are only very minor, light scuffs from use on the woodwork itself. The original upholstered seat pads are however a little marked with wear. We would recommend getting them either cleaned or recovered (an easy and inexpensive job with an upholsterer) – please refer to our photos. There are no tears or worn patches, they are just lightly marked as you would perhaps expect from a cream fabric. Please browse all our photos for an accurate sense of the overall superb condition of this set.
