You are viewing a truly regal dining set consisting of a 13 foot Regency style pedestal desk in flame mahogany and a matching set of 8 mahogany Adams style dining chairs. I hope the photos do this set some justice, it’s certainly better in the flesh.
The table sits firmly on the three pedestal bases which are on castors so you can move this around easily. When fully extended it is 13 foot long – and more than comfortably accomodates ten people – you can fit more if you wanted. This makes it great for hosting large scale dinner parties. The great thing is with these tables there flexibility. When you don\’t need it so large you can unextend it by taking out the two extra leaves – you can even use it with just two pedestals, there is a variety of different size combinations.
The finish to the flame mahogany is amazing and the table is offered in very good condition with no scratches, solid and stable, ready for home use right away. Along with the table you are viewing a wonderful set of matching 8 Adams style dining chairs consisting of 2 arm chairs and 6 side chairs. The chairs are handcrafted from the finest mahogany and have a lovely veneer to the wood. This particular set have just come back from the restorers where they had a repolish so they are ready for home use immediately.
The Adams style chair backs are very distinctive with the shield shape and the hand carved designs including the classical urns and swags, a common Adams motif. The chairs are solid and sturdy, no wobbles to the joints and very comfortable to sit in. We have various mahogany dining tables available to match so please email if you are interested in buying a set. We would of course offer a great discount for buying a set. Also check out store. The seats have just been repholstered with a flower print fabric, so these are offered free from any previous owners smells such as smoke and pets. We bought these from a dealer in Sheringham, Norfolk.
Adam was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, the second son of William Adam (1689–1748), a stonemason and architect who was Scotland’s foremost designer of country houses at the time. His younger brother and business partner James Adam was also an architect of some note, as was his older brother John Adam, although both were overshadowed by Robert.
He is considered by many to be the greatest architect of the late 18th century, and a leader of the neo-classical revival in England and Scotland from around 1760 until his death. Sir William Chambers was the leading British official architect of the era, but Adam received many important commissions from private clients and had a more lasting stylistic influence, termed the Adam style.
