1960s Hairpin Leg Formica Table
Hairpin legged furniture seems to be all the rage these days! So I was really pleased to stumble across this original 1960s hairpin leg table in my local junkshop. The yellow formica carries a fab geometric pattern which contrasts wonderfully with the white coated wire legs, and gives a shout out to the sixties era it was made in. Unfortunately I had to pay quite a bit more than my budget usually allows but it was definitely worth the splurge! Sold**

1960s Yellow Drop Leaf Formica Table

Formica is a plastic so not a friend of the eco-warriors but how could you not fall in love with this gorgeous little table. I spotted it hiding in the corner of a junk shop and quickly claimed my treasure. Carrying it to the bus stop was quite a task but maybe a test of how much I wanted it. It is gate leg in style with two drop leaves in a lovely sorbet yellow colour. Some of the joints were loose so needed a glue & clamp job, and a thorough scrub down before looking good as new. Super retro, super cool Рwhat more could you want? Sold**
