Wing-back armchair in Melin Tregwynt fabric
Large wing-back armchair reupholstered in Melin Tregwynt St.David's Cross Cassis Welsh wool.
This fabric is a traditionally woven wool in an 18th century pattern based on Shaker weaves. It is 100% British (Welsh) and cool enough for Matthew Hilton (with SCP) - here it is on one of their Balzac chairs.
And because of a brave decision, this customer now has one in her living room.The only one of its kind anywhere.
I had it in the window of my showroom for a day before it was collected and a couple stopped the car and came in to ask me how much it was. 'Not for sale' I told them, 'but I could reupholster one of your chairs in the same fabric.'
'Hmmn,' they said, and went away chattering like sparrows.
This was a commission.
