Armchair in Welsh wool

Here's a neat little 1940's armchair reupholstered in a brand new semi-plain weave fabric by the ever wonderful Melin Tregwynt

I think this is the first time in a long time that Melin Tregwynt have produced a non-patterned cloth and jolly smart it is too. And it makes a change for me not having to pattern-match. Still 100% wool and still 100% Made in Wales.

The colours in the threads are very strong, so what looks at first like a nice rich single colour separates into three clear colours as you look closer. Quite brilliant.

A new customer saw this on the bench last week and said "That's what I want, I want my sofa covered in that fabric."

Can't say fairer than that.

This was a commission.
