A staple of many homes back in the Mid 20th Century, formica topped tables were practical, stylish and the smooth, glossy surface, was designed for easy cleaning. They came in many sizes, patterns and colours, instantly transforming any dull kitchen/dining space.
Able to fold away, this compact table is perfect for those who don’t have much dining space; the two folding leaves have an automatic spring loaded mechanism making them very solid and secure in operation, yet easy to re-fold. The table is in good vintage condition, and has minimal areas of wear, the worst being a few nibbles to the edges and a few feint scratches and scuffs, all of which are extremely difficult to show in the photographs. There are scuffs and dings to the beech legs and one of the leaves has dropped slightly ( although it’s almost impossible to see ).
With vintage pieces like this, you certainly get quality and value for money, preserving the past with unusual finds that also help save the planet !
This table has a teak effect grained formica top, obviously well made, loved and looked after and a great find, ready and waiting for its new home, maybe not just as a breakfast table; useful as a desk space if working from home !
The table top has been thoroughly cleaned, the springs oiled and the solid beech legs and frame have undergone a light sand and have been re oiled. The legs are detachable, therefore some assembly may be required but no tools are necessary.
These tables work great in coffee shops and small restaurants, handy and space saving, seating two or four, maybe even more! We have shown a selection of styles of seating with this table, all of which are listed separately. We have shown the Quitmann chairs with different upholstered seat pads ; usually we have a set to commission, just message us! We will always offer a discount for multiple purchases, just ask!
