Unusual early 1960’s Laminate small dining table and 4 chairs by Berry Furniture
We have a 1961 catalogue when this was introduced . Berry Furniture specialised in making well made practical furniture with a laminated finish . They even made their own laminates in various wood effect finishes . Unlike today the laminates are really thick , so much harder wearing than most you’ll buy now . We liked the stylish ebonised legs with their coat hanger apron as well as the neat size . These sets don’t turn up very often today .
The laminate is in lovely vintage condition with no obvious damage or bad scratches . The ebonised finish could do with being re-done . The chairs are all sturdy and retain their original yellow gold figured fabric . They originally would have had some thin foam behind the fabric but this has now disintegrated and needs replacing when the chairs are re-upholstered .
The table is 121cms x 82cms , and the small extension adds 30cms .
