The teal fabric is beautifully complimented by black vegan leather hand-made double piping which frames the curved back rests. We have managed to retain the original black fabric panels to the underside of the seats, each bearing the gold embossed E Gomme stamp, which dates the chairs to between 1952 and 1966.
We have also given the ebonised frames a fresh coat of paint. These striking chairs are in great condition, having been recently re-upholstered by us. The legs were quite badly scuffed when we received them, so the frames have been gently sanded and re-painted, and the joints have been glued. There is still some slight movement in the joints, but they are sturdy and very useable.
Check out our matching Tola and Black drop leaf dining table (as pictured in photo 12), for a spectacular mid-century dining suite. We also have two more Gplan butterfly chairs in stock, which have curved teak back rests rather than padded upholstered ones. They would complement this set beautifully if placed at the short ends of your dining table, with the padded-back chairs down the long sides.
We can reupholster the seats of the teak-back chairs in the same teal chenille or in a contrasting fabric of your choice. Please note that the price listed is four the four teal chairs only. G-Plan E Gomme Tola and Black range. British furniture brand G Plan began as a pioneering range of furniture produced by E Gomme Ltd of High Wycombe.E Gomme regularly introduced new ranges to keep up with changes in fashion. The glamorous Tola and Black range was introduced in 1958, featuring rich glossy African mahogany (Tola wood) veneers, with dramatically shaped ebonised legs, beautifully complimented by brass feet and fittings. The range is sometimes referred to as'Librenza' this was actually the name of a type of room divider / shelving unit from the Tola range (as coined by GPlans marketing wizard Doris Gundry), being a combination of the words library and credenza.
