Post move we've developed a list of items to be on the lookout for- mostly boring baby or home related things. Things that we can get now that we have closets, a yard and an actual dining room.
Yesterday I brought home a dining table and 4 chairs. In someone else's house I loved them so much that my first instinct was to lick them to claim them as mine forever and ever. However, in my house I'm having a problem making them fit.
Look past the awkwardly placed rug and piles of artwork waiting to be hung. It really is a gorgeous set but doesn't quite go with our hutch or at least the current placement of our hutch. For one the hutch is a much more substantial piece and the wood is blonder. When the table is centered under the light there is not much room between the table and the hutch.
The table has leaves that slide out or under. We could leave it square but I think it does nothing for the room or table to leave it all closed up.
I love the shape of the chairs. Since the current covers are not original and the foam is nice but a bit thick I've already started the process to remove and recover. There are no marking on the table or the chairs except for written on the underside of the table "IMP-51" A Mid Century group on Facebook threw out the name Koefoeds Hornslet and these chairs are a close match, just not marked and the wood looks to be oak, not teak or rosewood.
So my question is...Does the table work in this room? Do I keep the table and chairs and try to rehome the hutch. Or do I sell the set and look for one better suited for this space?
*UPDATE* new post HERE with pictures of the entire room and the table flipped around.
