I have a beautiful dining room table w/ 6 chairs and 3 leafs that make it a huge table for family gatherings. The table w/ out the leaves fit the 6 chairs around it with plenty of room. The chairs seats have been recently recovered and the 2 end chairs were completely recovered. I also have the protective pad/cover for the dining room table. The buffet that goes with the table is amazing! If you want any more pictures please email me. Cash only. Must be picked up.

More info about the history of the furniture company:
Drexel Furniture - Triune Collection was produced 1959 to 1970 as a furniture collection by Drexel Furniture Company. Drexel Furniture Company was a division of Drexel Enterprises, Inc. at the time that this furniture collection was introduced. The name "Tri-une" indicates it is the merging of three centuries of design into one group. Referring to 18th, 19th and 20th century furniture style elements incorporated into the furniture. Thomas Sheraton design elements are used freely in many pieces. Other elements from the Adam Brothers were included with an emphasis on architectural "built-ins". Influence from Hepplewhite and the previous furniture designers add to the Directoire, French and American Empire periods for this very particular mid-20th century collection. Sable Mahogany included antiquing, overlays of walnut burl, and mottled stripe veneers were used. Rose-beige Portuguese marble was added to the tops of some of the furniture pieces.
In 1959, Henry and David Warren, a father and son team from Grand Rapids, Michigan, designed the Triune collection for Drexel. Drexel Styling director was Jim Peed. By 1963, this group exceeded $45 million at retail.
The Triune Collection won the Grand Prize and "Obelisk of Achievement" presented by the Mahogany Association for excellence in design and craftsmanship in mahogany furniture for the year 1960.
