The text and photos can not be used without the prior written consent of the owner. This listing is for 6 dining chairs. Theres 2 carver chairs (with arms) PLUS 4 chairs without armrests. Provenance and Background Info. A set of SIX dining chairs by White and Newton of England. Id say these chairs were made in the late 60s or early 70s. These chairs are exquisite- the carvers in particular are an exceptional piece of design. I really want one of the carvers for home but I cant justify breaking this suite up. This set of chairs tick every box. Theyre extremely well made. Structurally theyve fared very well over the last 45-odd years. There is very little to show for their age. The joinery is incredible. These chairs are also comfortable for a dining chair- the back is high and curved. In my opinion the comfort is about the same as the most sought-after Parker design from the same era. They have the sculptural elegance of Danish furniture but this design is unique to White and Newton. The carver chairs at each end of the table create an incredible sense of style. If you type White and Newton chairs into Google virtually no chairs come up- sideboards is virtually all youll see. And their sideboards are just stunning. Very few chairs come up and Id say this is because White and Newton were so meticulous in their workmanship they just couldnt compete with other chairs in the marketplace at the time. These chairs would have taken many hours to craft and thats for just one chair! This set tick all the boxes and are still going strong after over 40 to 50 years of use. The advantage of investing in vintage design is simple- when dining chairs have been used for over 40 years and look like this you have a definite guarantee theyve been built to last (and that the design is timeless too). There’s no better way I can think of to make a better ecological choice for your home. And to top it off these also offer an astute financial investment. All SIX dining chairs are in solid sturdy condition. There is NO noticeable separation in any joint, NO wobbles in any joint, NO cracks/ NO splits around any joint or anywhere. They are all solid chairs that show beautiful quality and meticulous workmanship. One aspect that epitomises the quality is the curved timber seats under the upholstery- these are all rock solid after all these years use. Timber seats are much better than standard webbing because webbing sags with age and needs to be removed and updated. The timber is in brilliant condition for the age of the chairs having a few minor signs of use (small knocks, marks, very minor wear etc to be expected after 40+ years). The upholstery is from Warwick Fabrics and is very close to new. Warwick Fabrics carry a 10 year guarantee. The chairs have a total height of 84cm with a seat height of 47cm. They measure 50cm across by 48cm back. The carvers are the same except theyre 53cm across and the armrest height is 65.5cm. Read my 1040+ feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture and decorative arts SALES) to be assured that all my items are described as accurately as I can. THIS SET IS LOCATED IN BRISBANE NORTHSIDE. Pick-up 30 mins or 40 mins NORTH of BRISBANE is accepted if needed. PLEASE NOTE that I have items stored at three locations NORTH of Brisbane. I have 12-years of experience using furniture carriers. I also made a conscious choice to get rid of my vehicle in 2009 (for environmental reasons). Therefore I have a depth of experience and knowledge in this area. I will inform all iNVISeDGE customers of the transport carriers best suited to their job, what each carrier charges and how good each one is. Most of the time I will narrow it down for you immediately to a choice of two carriers. This new system will work extremely well for customers. As mentioned above for environmental reasons I choose not to own a vehicle therefore I can not deliver items personally. Interstate carriers quotes are approximate as various factors will influence the cost including your exact location and loading issues. My estimates are careful but it will also depend on the carrier chosen. DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT is HIGHLY preferred and appreciated. In plain English on our shop-front are the words from our many customers- every grievance a customer has ever had with us (none) and every recommendation weve had (hundreds). You cant get that if you walk into any shop off the street. The iNVISeDGE Story and Viewings. INVISeDGE operated in Sydney (Newtown and the City) for 8 years. I then moved interstate and operated in Brisbane for about 4 years. About 12 years all up. In 2013 I moved to the North of Brisbane. Viewings will usually be facilitated by someone else. This person does not have any authority to negotiate in price. Read my 1050+ feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture/decor SALES- 100 or so are from repeat customers). This is your guarantee that I work hard to describe all my stock as accurately as possible and will not stock items I cant personally recommend- some items I acquire dont end up in iNVISeDGE because they dont make the grade. I sell these elsewhere. I have had furniture items go all over the world (sight unseen) and do everything thats reasonably possible to make my customers happy with their choice to support my business.
