This is a significant mid-century modern dining set from Drexel’s Counterpoint collection, designed in 1957 by John Van Koert. The set includes a rectangular dining table with two drop leaves, two additional center leaves and eight chairs. The table is fashioned from wild-grained cherry with contrasting supports and legs in mahogany. The mixture of drop leaves and center leaves allows the table to be configured in a variety of sizes. The chairs have scooped cherry backs with articulated mahogany legs. The seats have been reupholstered in a teal fabrication. The table measures 86” wide / 40” deep / 29.5” tall with all of the leaves inserted. Each chair measures 20” wide / 19” deep / 29” tall. The entire set has been professionally refinished and reupholstered.
