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.
If your house or apartment simply does not have the necessary space for a large table at all times, then this compact vintage blue extending formica kitchen/dining table gives you the perfect combination of space-saving design, beauty and durability.
This table has a small storage drawer with a chrome handle - this is clean and runs as it should. The table frame, legs and supports are made from hardwood, probably beech. These have been lightly sanded and re oiled, however do show signs of age related wear and tear. The formica edging around the table is in good order with just a few nibbles, the table top has been cleaned and polished but does have a few surface scratches along with a couple of faded areas, however the formica is still a lovely pale blue. The three brass hinges on each leaf look a little rusty but work perfectly and have been cleaned and oiled, functioning as they should. The side leaves are firm and straight when fully extended. The leaves open up independently to create a larger table and sit on sliding wooden supports (similar to the Ercol tables). Underneath the table is the original label and makers name “Guildform “.
Great as a desk as well as a dining table, and when extended could easily seat 4 even six at a push- add a retro stool or two!
These tables work great in coffee shops and small restaurants, handy and space saving, also practical with a wipe clean surface suitable for kids.
We usually have in stock a selection of styles of chairs and/or stools that complement this style of table, all of which are listed separately, just messaged us !
