Functional, as well as offering a nod to the 1950s. that's this midcentury-style dining table and chairs at Dooley's Furniture.
Th is modern design is fairly timeless, although it is obviously inspired by midcentury Scandinavian pieces, offering up that retro twist without throwing it in your face. All made of oak, you get the table with that slanted legs and lacquered finish, plus the chairs, with the same finish, but with curved backs and slightly angled seats.
The entire set is yours for £825. You can also buy the table and chairs separately.
