Nest of three teak G-Plan tables from the Quadrille range

£245.00Price

A nest of three 'Quadrille' G-Plan Range tables, designed in 1967 by Roger Bennett and made by E Gomme Ltd of High Wycombe - made in teak and afromosia woods. Each table has a rectangular top and a stretcher across the back. They smaller tables slot under the larger table for neat storage when not in use.

  • The firm of E. Gomme had been in operation since the end of the 19th century but in the post war era they launched the G-Plan range tapping into the pent up demand for new furniture following the Utility scheme of wartime rationing of furniture.  It was hugely popular, but following government restrictions on hire purchase schemes, the firm began loosing out to the Scandinavian producers.  They brought in Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen and brought out a Danish Modern furniture range, although the more successful lines were actually designed by British designers influenced by Larsen's work such as Roger Bennett (designer of the Quadrille Range) and Victor Wilkins (designer of the Fresco Range).

     

    Roger Bennett studied at High Wycombe College of Further Education and was the winner in 1956 of a bursary from the Royal Society of Arts.  He designed the Quadrille Range in the mid 1960s (the preview design catalogue shows this table in 1965) but in 1966 left the furniture industry to set up a card and gift shop in Haslemere with his wife.
