Daily eBay – Arkana table & chairs
October 28, 2008 by greenmystyle
Today’s Daily eBay is this original dining set from the Sixties, manufactured by Arkana, and discovered for greenmystyle.com by designer and expert eBay hunter Vic Tristram. It is similar to designer Eero Saarinen’s iconic tulip table and chairs (Note from ed: these are sitting in my dining room right now), but this particular model was designed by Maurice Burke.
The chairs have the original orange vinyl or rexine seats, still firmly in place, and the table top is still in very good condition. There is some chipping to a couple of the chair feet – the worst being shown in the last pic on eBay.
As the seller says, this set is perfect for any retro / modernist home. Don’t own a retro / modernist home? Move house, silly!
It has a starting bid price of 99pence, and bidding ends November 5 at 8.45pm.
