I've Got A Fresh Offering At Our Shop: Fleur De Lis - Home Source, This Week. Space Is At A Premium, Even Though I Pulled Out A Pair Of Chairs To Sell Elsewhere, But I Just Managed To Shoehorn This In! Status: Teak-a-licious!
This is all the info I have. And I'm thankful for having even that since these stickers are often lost over time. I've got the manufacturer and country of origin, but alas...have found nothing on a designer. The set has the same je ne sais quois that I feel infuses Erik Buck designs. Maybe one of my readers knows who the mystery designer is!
Well? What do ya think? This is a pretty striking Scandinavian dining set. It consists of four armchair
dining chairs, a pedestal table and a large leaf. Four armchairs in a set like this is sort of unusual, right?
And it's the chairs that are really the star of the show with this Danish teak set.
I wasn't too sure about the chairs at first because of the LOW slung stretchers between the front and rear
legs. I thought the stretchers were actually runners (like the whole stretcher rested entirely on the floor)
until I got a chance to look at the chairs in person. I might not have been so keen on the chairs if the
stretchers had actually been runners as that would have lent them a more "office room" feel. Sometimes
the smallest, most subtle details make all the difference.
And my favorite detail is the armrest and upright for the chair back. This area is both sculpted yet
angular. Again, it's these small details that put a set like this a notch above your average Danish teak
dining set. The chairs have been recently re-upholstered in a lovely sage green pair of contrasting but
complimentary patterns. I might not have chosen the patterns but the color works very nicely with
The set will be available Wednesday at Fleur De Lis - Home Source and hopefully there's a buyer out
there ready to give it a new home. Drop by and give it and all our other beautiful treasures a good lookin'
at when you get a chance! If you are absolutely Desperate to check out the dining set before Wednesday,
feel free to shoot me a note and we can set up an appointment.
