    Any thoughts on the Ditte & Adrian Heath Dining Set 594 (for Cado)?

    There is one exactly like this for sale nearby for $900 (says with 5 chairs although the pictures only show 4) but I am unsure if it is worth making the trek to go and see it...not sure what these are worth.

    I think it would work well when I move to my new apartment. Think I would like to switch from a round table to a rectangle. I think this is just the right size...4-seater with leaves that extend to give me a bit more space for entertaining.

    Is 900 a fair value? Are there any durability/wobble issues with the lack of bracing in the cantilevered legs of those chairs?

    The chair feet remind me of the Imperial Walkers attacking the Rebel base on Hoth.

    It is a cool set. Danish design with a playful component, though nothing too earth shattering when it comes to overall design. I would do a quick online search for past sales results and asking prices (Dealers, ebay, some auctions).

    I spent 2 min on it and $900 for a set of 5 + table sounds ok. Of course, it all depends on condition, the right fabric, etc. But redoing those does also not appear to be complicated.

    Edit: Forgot to look at your spoiler. At least from the pics they do seem to be in decent condition. I think $900 gives you then a good negotiation starting point and, unless I am completely off on price, there is no/ very limited harm done getting them.

    Thanks, I guess I will hop on the motorcycle and go take a look (looking is easy...getting a table and chairs home from 45 minutes away is a bit harder by bike).

    Table already sold...so I guess I don't even have to think about it.

    Raw denim probably would have rubbed off on the white upholstery of those chairs anyways

    Do you "set" on it, or lounge in it?

    RIP. His Kilin chair is quite possibly the best iteration of the Spanish sling chair. Still available from the original manufacturer, and at a reasonable price.
