Tola Tombola

G Plan Chest of Drawers 1958
The 1950s fashion for black legs and brass fittings gave birth to G Plan’s ‘Liberenza’ range. This chest with its gilt capped feet, distinctive ebonised base & tola wood construction make it instantly recognisable as one of several pieces from the range. Not knowing much about tola wood I wasn’t instantly taken by this chest and nearly left it behind. But its charming brass loop handles won me over and a quick paint touch up has made it gleam like new.

    Hi rujina
    Verity sent me the link I love your things. I have just bought a vintage round Danish table form eBay unfortunately in Colchester so have to work out a way of getting it home. Verity might have told you that we have bought a little cottage in Wales and I am having great fun redecorating and trying to find quirky things for it. I would like some bedside tables and when we get around to doing the kitchen I am going to be looking for a Formica table and chairs. So if you see any let me know.

    Lots of love
    Deborah
    Happy travelling

    • Hi Deborah

      Thanks so much for signing up to the blog and having a look –
      I have abit of a love affair with teak furniture so its really nice to hear that you have a mutual appreciation! Verity mentioned the cottage, it sounds lovely! Try shiply.com or anyvan.com for getting the table to you from Colchester – they’re courier sites where you can list your journey and couriers bid prices to deliver it. You only have to accept a bid if you are happy with the quotes, no obligation so maybe worth a try. I will keep my eyes peeled for a formica table & chair set for you. Hope to see you at some point when we get back from our travels. Love Rujina X
