1966 G Plan ‘Fresco’ Chairs
This handsome pair are from the popular ‘Fresco’ range and were designed for G Plan by VB Wilkins. The circular seat pad & curved, padded back rest makes for arguably one of G Plan’s most comfortable chairs – with sufficient padding to park any size behind! They can be found in a variety of fabrics but these have retained their original black vinyl upholstery. I carried them home from a nearby junkshop, which seemed like a good idea until I woke up the next day and couldn’t move my arms from the pain! Sold**

Al ‘Fresco’ Feast!

1960s G Plan Chest
This rather charming 3 drawer teak chest/cabinet is from G Plan’s immensely popular ‘Fresco’ range, which is credited with starting the revolution in Scandinavian style furniture. I spotted the distinctive handles the minute I stepped into the junk shop & with the help of my other half swiftly bundled it into the back of his car and made a quick getaway before anyone else could claim it! The drawers are dovetailed, the lines are clean, the grain pattern is gorgeous and the top drawer hides a lovely cutlery tray (complete with purple velvet lining – fancy!) What more could you want?
