    Mine is same table, different chairs but close in style. I have the 7 & 1/2 foot buffet that matches. Still gorgeous since 1965 when Mom purchased it at the Teak store ( no longer existing) in Wpg, MB.

    Look at Dania and Scan Design. Both have very similar, if not exact, styles. I was just at both stores yesterday, June 2014.

          Embracing midcentury modern style today. Instead of trying to re-create a midcentury home exactly, today’s take on midcentury modern style is open to interpretation. Don’t be afraid to mix in a few iconic midcentury pieces with those in other styles you love, or to revive vintage midcentury finds with new textiles.

          14. This is the dining room from the same Long Beach, California, house whose true-to-form midcentury modern style dominates this list. See more: My Houzz: 1950s Rebound for a Cliff May HousePendant: George Nelson Saucer Lamp, Modernica; dining table, chairs: Inretrospect

          3. Make furniture gleam. If you can't remember the last time you polished your wood furniture, doing so will probably make you wonder why you don't do it all the time — the difference is amazing. The type of finish on your furniture will determine what you use to polish it. Midcentury teak pieces are often finished with oil alone, so simply rubbing in a bit more teak oil from time to time will suffice. Finished wood pieces may respond well to a furniture paste or wax — read the directions thoroughly before trying any new product.

          Between the vintage Nelson bubble lamp, cloth wall art and '50s teak dining set, the dining room area comes together in good midcentury form. The art, found at Inretrospect, is a 1963 serigraph on cloth by David Weidman titled "Family of Birds."Pendant: George Nelson Saucer Lamp, Modernica; dining table,chairs: Inretrospect
