Mid Century G Plan Tola and Black Dining Set with Butterfly Chairs
1960's Mid Century G Plan Tola and Black Model 924 extending dining table with four reupholstered butterfly back chairs.
The black lacquered legs and bold purple fabric contrast beautifully with the deep warmth of the Tola mahogany table top and chair backs. Altogether, it is a set that would make any dining area stand out for its cool and bold style.
Tola and Black was E. Gomme's nod to the ultra chic Italian styling of the 1950s, taking its G Plan brand in a modern Continental direction. New lines were crafted in such a way as to give a more upmarket feel to the brand, using Tola (African Mahogany) and ebonised finishes to add that touch of Italian sultry luxury. This table is listed as, 'Extending Dining Table (924)' in the 1962 catalogue, G-Plan New Models Folder: Guide to the G-Plan. It was noted, '924 extending dining table seats eight people with ease. Centre leaf is removable and can be stored in slots under table-top.'
The stunning G Plan chairs are highly collectible and understandably so. Just look at the striking silhouette, the stylish, curved butterfly backs and vibrantly coloured seat pads. This set has been professionally restored in a high quality, durable and easy-maintenance wool mix fabric in bold purple by Bute Fabrics of Scotland.
The fine grain of the table's wood veneer top and chair backs have been stripped, sanded and finished with a durable clear lacquer and the legs have been freshly re-lacquered in black. The brass feet are adjustable to suit uneven surfaces and add the finishing touch to this chic Mid Century dining set.
Whether you're looking for a versatile dining table for family dinners or enjoy having friends over, you'll always be able to offer the ultimate in style and taste.
A beautiful dining set of 20th Century design for modern interiors.
