Our house is starting to look a bit empty these days. After recently selling our living room chairs and bar stools, this weekend I sold our dining chairs and with no backup plan it looks like we're getting ready to move. We want to invest in some antique or mid-century furniture so I spent hours scouring Craigslist and my other favourite sources. We went to a local antique shop and found this lovely set of chairs. What we weren't expecting is that the chairs come with the table.
It looks like a teeny little table but with all the leaves inserted it's going to be 7' long and similar shape to this one. It's a Danish-made 1960's Moller set and it's in fantastic shape. My only concern is that I know teak can stain quite easily and I've never been a fan of worrying about that kind of thing. Do any of you own a teak dining table and maybe have some advice in this department?
I had an hour to spare on Saturday so I hit a couple of my favourite thrift stores. I have absolutely no place to put this but I still think I'm going back for it (please be there!). It's down filled and super solid. It would, of course be recovered but it's an amazing steal at $50. It is so completely comfortable and could be used in my husband's office for his daily naps:) I'm guessing by the fabric that it's another relic from the 60's. I love that they made furniture so diminutive because it's so comfortable for those of us who are vertically challenged.
This is exactly the fabric I would cover it in.
Now I just have to figure out how to get this bad boy home!!
