Retro Off White Folding Formica Table with Painted Blue Legs


There is no visible labels or branding on this table but we have had one in identical in shape and size recently so I believe this table to be manufactured in England by Guildform.

This retro brand of vintage kitchen/dining table seems to be the smallest footprint table with the largest surface area we have come across!

The table has an off white/grey wood effect formica top surface with a blue painted beech frame ( I’m told only one owner from new and they decided many years ago to update the table with a lick of pale blue paint); extremely compact when folded away but with the added space saving flexibility of drop leaves on either side, making it perfect for modern homes with smaller spaces. The leaves open up independently to create a larger table. The two folding leaves have an automatic spring loaded mechanism making them very solid and secure in operation, yet easy to re-fold. Great as a desk as well as a dining table, and when extended could seat up to four.

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 have shown a selection of styles of seating with this table, all of which are listed separately.

The table has been thoroughly cleaned and degreased, the hardwood frame has been lightly sanded and we managed to find a colour match blue paint “Dix Blue by Farrow & Ball so we have refreshed where necessary. The hinges and spring supports have been oiled and the table top polished. The formica is firmly fixed however there are two small gaps to the trim on one of the internal edges - this is hardly noticeable when the table is fully extended and this edge could be placed against the wall when folded, this has also changed colour over time, it was probably white and is now off white (we have shown photos of these blemishes). The mechanics work as they should and firmly support each leaf although there is a slight drop.

Please note this listing is for the table only! We did acquire two matching stools and two chairs with the table (all painted in the same blue) - we have reupholstered both the stools and the chairs in a complimenting new vinyl, these are listed separately. Message us if you would like a combined delivered price for the set, always happy to discount!
