An extending dining table and 4 chairs manufactured by the admired mid century maker Greaves and Thomas. This elegant, vintage mid-century dining set is of quality design and construction. The chairs are covered in a very attractive fabric and the table extends easily by swinging out the extension leaves that stores easily underneath its top.
Greaves & Thomas was a London based company with a history dating back to the early 1900’s. In the early years the company specialised in lounge furniture and upholstery. By the mid 20th century the company was producing a range of high end contemporary furniture – including sideboards, armchairs and even bedroom mirrors.
By the mid 1950’s and 60’s Greaves & Thomas, like many other British companies, hired trained designers to create contemporary furniture. Walter Cornell designed many pieces for the company during this time, his work featured clean lines and a Danish influence. In 1967 Greaves & Thomas was purchased by Schreiber to add quality and prestige to their furniture offering.
