This is a stunning dining table with 6 leather chairs. Each chair covered full back and seat in quality leather and on secure castors. Each chair has 'arms' and all are super comfortable with great back support.
Table measures: 1.05metres bay 2.15metres.
Wood is Pacific Coconut - the timber resembles pattern of Honeysuckle. The chairs are in perfect condition. The table has a water mark on the surface which has lifted an area of the 'polyurethane' finish. There are tiny surface marks and there is one edge where the timber joins have moved very slightly (less than 0.25mm). Surface can be quite easily restored with a sand and re-polyurethane. Table is structurally sound.
Price is negotiable - Genuine inquirers only please.
