Oak and Sage Painted Gateleg Table and Chairs
This dining suite comprises a vintage set of 4 Golden Oak carved dining chairs, with Sage leatherette seats and labelled from McCulloch & Young 1930s department store in Stirling. Their shape is very typical of their period, stout and sensible, classic and comfortable, with veneered carved panels, and carved bulbous legs.
We have paired them with a Golden Oak gateleg dining table of similar vintage, its top sanded down and waxed to bring out the warmth of its natural colour, and its base with barley-twist legs painted in a Sage/Olive chalk paint to match the chair upholstery. When not in use for four people, the table flaps fold away neatly to make a sensible space-saving side table.
This is a handsome and comfortable dining set. Not perhaps for the metropolitan stiletto wearer, but more for someone who's at home in flats, brogues or wellies, and certainly eminently suitable for any country or country-look dining room or kitchen.
