Danish Modern Oval Extending Teak Dining Table By Arne Vodder
A rare and exquisite Danish Modern oval extending teak dining table by Arne Vodder for Sibast from the late 50's/ early 60's. The Model 227 dining table expands effortlessly from a 4 seater table to a comfortable 10 person dining table with space down the centre for serving. In the most compact form it is a 4 person rectangular table as the drop leaves can be removed. Add each of the semi circular hanging/ drop leaves to seat up to 6 with room too spare. In this configuration it is oval. Pull apart the ends to insert 2 more drop leaves in the middle and seat up to 12 comfortably! The centre drop leaves have skirting to give a finished look. The skirting is on piano hinges making them compact to store when not in use. The oval teak top features marvellous grain pattern and warm colour throughout the table. It is a truly exceptional example of Danish Modern design. Thick solid teak edging runs around the entire perimeter of the table and each of the leaves. The table is thin and this contributes to the table seeming more streamlined. The elegant, tapered, solid teak legs easily remove for moving and storage. Single owner for the last 50 years and stamped. A fabulous investment piece for your home or equally perfect as an expanding boardroom table.
