Mid Century Modern Danish Retro Dining Room Set (Reduced Price) – $1400 (Topeka, KS)

Date: 2012-09-19, 12:13PM CDT
Reply to this postReply to: 9pwpc-3282389448@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

A great vintage Danish Mid Century Modern style dining room set in overall excellent used condition from the late 1950s Eames Era. A perfect compliment to any mid-century modern collectors decor to create that great "Mad Men" tv show style interior design. This set saw very light use as it sat in a formal dining room primarily unused for many years.
There are a few common blemishes from use and age and the fabric on the chairs is original but no significant damage or defects. The original glass to the hutch face has been misplaced during storage but could possibly be found before you come pick it up. Unsure of the specific wood type but it has a great reddish hue with good visible grain.
Currently in Dry Storage on property in Topeka, KS – please email to come by and see it as schedules allow. Asking $1400.00
Approximate Dimensions;
Buffet + Hutch: 56.25"W X 64.25"H X 17.5"D
Dry Bar Buffet: 60"W X 40"H X 17.5"D
Chairs (x6): 24"W X 21"D X 30.5"H
