Vintage Eva chair by Koefoeds Hornslet of Denmark with Scandinavian Design book and orange throw

We’ve chosen a piece of vintage Danish furniture for this week’s favourite buy.

This Eva carver armchair was designed by Niels Koefoed in 1964.

The chair is made of teak with a plain, black, leatherette seat. It has a strong mid century modern look just standing bare, but we also like the addition of a bold colour throw or cushion. Orange always works well!

 Its condition is very good and it’s fully stamped and labelled to the underside.

It’s very elegant and would work well as a dining, office or occasional chair. As with most of our furniture buys, it’s on its way to our antiques centre space, but you’re welcome to collect or have a courier pick it up. The price is £125, but we could knock off the twenty five if it helps with the petrol costs!

Charity Vintage: Gate leg drop leaf table

Vintage gate leg drop leaf table(ends 05 Jun, 2015 15:06:29 BST)

Emmaus Bristol* currently has for sale this vintage teak gate leg drop leaf table. It’s a really practical & useful table; for either daily or occasional use. It comfortably sits 6 people when extended but, when needed, it can collapse down to a width of a mere 21.5cm – ueful if you’re short on space!

The central panel has lightened with age noticeably more than the leaves. It should be a fairly straightforward DIY sand & stain job to match them up again. Other than that, it’s in good condition.

It’s a ‘buyer to collect’ item, but Emmaus are happy to deliver (for a fee) within Bristol city limits if you happen to be local.

*Emmaus Bristol is part of a worldwide charitable organisation that helps individuals, who for a vast variety of reasons have become homeless or are facing homelessness. The charity here in Bristol collects donated household effects and sells them through our three shops. We sell furniture, electricals, clothing, bric-a-brac and bicycles. This provides work for our companions which generates money that goes towards relieving the burden and stigma of income support. Also providing a safe living environment, until such time as the individual is able to move onto independent living. Emmaus, through solidarity also works with other local and international charities.


Gimme Five! Coffee tables

selection of 5 coffee tables

We had a new competition start this morning with a prize of a rather elegant, limited-edition coffee table. We thought we’d feature a few more versions of coffee tables available on the web.

There probably aren’t that many homes out there that don’t have at least one coffee table; it’s such a versatile piece of furniture. Use it to serve coffee, by all means – but it can also double (quadruple?) up as a bedside table, stool or footrest.

We were particularly tickled by the pizza box table/stool from Firebox. It would fit perfectly in a teenager’s or student’s bedroom!

  1. Mocha Modern Triangle coffee table – oiled oak: £169, Funique
  2. Incredible cardboard stool: £19.99, Firebox
  3. Fergus coffee table: £229, Swoon Editions
  4. Rattan table: £275, Cox & Cox
  5. Muuto Around small coffee table: £275, Occa Home
