You are viewing a dining table in cherry wood with a matching set of 8 English Windsor dining chairs. For those of you looking for that perfect rustic, cosy farmhouse look - here it is! The table is 9 foot long when fully extended - you can see the photos of the table at both different sizes which extends via the leaf system - so you can expand this for bigger dinner parties and make it smaller to suit your needs. That''s the great thing, it''s so flexible. It more than comfortably sits 8 people as you can see from the photos.
The table has lovely curved legs, complemented by some hand carved details and the elegant apron. We bought the table from a dealer in Avranches, France and it''s unusual to find such a lovely piece in such wondeful condition. The table is solid and sturdy, no wobbles, ready for home use right away. If you are looking for that authentic cosy farmhouse rustic look then look no further.
Then of course we have the perennial classic, a set of 8 Windsor chairs made from the finest English yew. The set of 8 consists of two arm chairs and six side chairs. These are the traditional and much loved Windsor chair design featuring the crinoline stretcher, hand turned legs, back splat with hand carved Prince of Wales feathers and the saddle shaped seats. They are very comfortable and solid and these are perfect for that rustic cosy farmhouse look. These were made by craftsman at High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire where they have been made using the same materials and skills for centuries.
They are a design classic and perhaps - in our humble opinion - one of the best style of chairs ever made. They are flexible in that they look equally at home around a dining table as they do in the kitchen.
For as long as I can remember we''ve had a set in our kitchen and they are perfect for withstanding the rigours of daily family life. They are solid, sturdy, comfortable and look great. They are hand crafted from the finest English yew and considerable work goes into the crafting of these fine pieces. Each seperate piece to each chair is hand carved and turned then assembled. This particular set came back from the restorers so they have been repolished and are very sturdy and ready for home use right away.
These chairs are built to last and I don''t think I''m exaggerating by saying they will last forever and hence make a great heirloom to pass down from generation to generation. We are expecting a lot of interest in these so get your bids and shipping quotes in early. Of course, if you wanted just the table and chairs on their own separately that is also of course more than possible.
