Russell Woodard Sculptura Dining Set



This iconic "Sculptura" five-piece dining set by Russell Woodard has a lot going for it.  To start, it's great looking and works well indoors or out.  The sculptural chairs do double duty as dining or occasional chairs, and the woven wire makes them light and easy to move.  They are very comfortable.  The octagonal table seats up to eight and the chalk white finish and simple, modern design allows the set to mix well with other chair styles.  The wire mesh on the table and chairs is in perfect condition.  Chairs, 32" h., 26" w., 23" d.  Table, 28.5" h., 48" w., 48" d.  American, c. 1960's  SOLD
Condition:  Very good vintage condition with age appropriate wear.
