1960's Tub Armchair

I've been waiting to get my hands on this 1960's tub armchair from a friend for some time. It was in a fairly sorry state sitting at the top of her stairs and I knew it would look terrific re-upholstered in Bute wool.

So I twisted her arm to let me at it.

Now covered in a superb orange tweed, handmade on the Isle of Bute. Even if I say so myself, it is an absolute peach.

This was a commission.


  1. Lovely, lovely work as always Mick. Wish you were closer to us, we've got two 1960's Parker Knoll "snoozer" chairs that you could no doubt work wonders on! By the way, still loving your one man crusade to supply bus stop chairs. Kim.
