Mid Century Modern

G Plan

Over any given period of time I can guarantee I always come across the same makers/manufacturers – one of these being G Plan.G Plan produced quality items which are as popular today as they where when they were first produced.Their furniture is very stylish and fashionable and is bang on trend in modern day interior.The furniture mainly made from teak, the furniture is Danish in style and is solidly constructed and fits in beautifully with the Scandi minimal interiors much favoured by current trends.G Plan collaborated with famous designers the most famous designer to work for G Plan was Ib Kofod Larsen in an attempt to gain a market share of the Danish market,although Kofod Larsen pieces are rare.

Brandon

The Festival of Britain saw consumers demand beautiful furniture and G Plan responded with Brandon.Their first range was made of light oak with elegant splayed legs and with a  simple straightforward design it was an instant success.The furniture was affordable as well as beautiful and customers were able to buy single pieces.Their advertising campaign showed furniture in room settings and rapidly gained desirability.

 

 

Tola

Tola was an exotic range of furniture with dark African woods teamed with black legs and brass fittings saw G Plan through to the 60s and was a more luxurious range.
