This Danish Modern masterpiece was designed in the 1952 by Hans Olsen for Frem Røjle furniture company. Four 3-legged chairs fit snugly with the skirt of the table, making it a perfect compact dining solution for small spaces. http://www.furnitureindex.dk/ has a great description of these chairs and the table. Its design is so economical yet almost whimsical, like a 3-dimensional puzzle or game of Tetris.
The three legged chair is upholstered in black plastic or vinyl. The table is only 41 inches in diameter and four of the chairs fit snuggly into the side of the table with the back support making the plinth of the table. The table comes in two different versions, the other one is solid and the other one has a seam in the middle that hides a butterfly mechanism leaf. Once the table is extended, it fits six 3-legged chairs. The chairs stack nicely when stored away from the table.
These chairs have a teak back support. There is a version of this chair that has a black plastic or vinyl covered back support. Also there are very similar 4-legged chairs that go with a similar table, which has a slightly thicker plinth.
The vinyl on these chairs is in very good condition, which is very important, as reupholstering these chairs is very difficult. The seat is glued to a triangular subframe, which needs to be taken apart to replace the vinyl.
