Savory SAGA

By Julia

When we last left off with the SAGA saga, my husband and I had just returned from St. Louis with a lovely rolling bar cart. Our next adventure was much closer to home. Using the wonders of modern technology, we were able to locate a SAGA dining room set in northern Illinois. We have family in southern Michigan, so the drive to pick up the table wasn’t too far out of the way from a weekend visit. We rented a trailer and set off to pick it up. The sellers had lovingly cared for the table and chairs, but were downsizing and no longer had space. This worked out well for us; the set was in pretty good shape and the price was reasonable.

The finish on the table has some wear marks, but nothing out of the ordinary for a piece of its age. The table itself is a drop-leaf with three additional leaves for the center.

 

The center leaves came in their original box with original packaging. We ended up needing to remove the packaging inside the box because it was disintegrating, but the box itself is still a great way to stow safely the table leaves.

The set came with six armless chairs. The seat cushions were reupholstered at some point, but we thought the pattern was sufficiently groovy. We are still on the hunt for a pair of captains’ chairs with arms.

Although the dining set does not showcase any of the starbursts of our other SAGA pieces, the legs are the same shape and design. Of course, the iconic walnut finish matches as well.

The dining set is a perfect companion for our SAGA china hutch!

Our next SAGA adventure didn’t involve any road trips, but it did take some fancy logistics to make it happen. Stay tuned for the next installment of the SAGA saga!

      I’ve enjoyed many of Broyhill’s vintage designs, but this one is my favorite!
