Richard Young for G Plan Young Ideas range
We have various pieces in this range available as we bought a large set from the family of some original owners who’d bought them new in about 1964 .
See our blog about the designer Richard Young and his work for G Plan before he helped found the well known premium British maker Merrow Associates .
All these pieces are in good vintage condition , so you will have to accept some minor signs of use and fading on some of them , but they’re priced accordingly . We can send photos and measurements of individual pieces and will mention any obvious marks .
We have from this set a pair of chests of drawers , a storage headboard and a cabinet with drawers and cupboards . We’ve listed the long dressing table that came with it separately . We also have a smaller dressing table and another pair of chests which have all been cleaned and restored all listed separately , which came from different homes .
The use of light oak with a white laminate and rosewood effect ( we think rather than rosewood veneered ! ) was very ahead of its time when it was designed in c 1962 and still looks very modern today . As it was made over 50 years ago by a good quality maker it’s far better made than similarly designed pieces that are currently for sale new .
