Slipper Chair in Melin Tregwynt wool

A 1940's (?) slipper chair reupholstered in Melin Tregwynt Mini Madison 100% Welsh wool.

I'm not sure if the inspiration behind the Mini Madison fabric design was Madison Avenue, but it's feasible isn't it? The squares bring to mind the New York street grid, to me at least.

Also makes me think of the painting Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian, what do you think?

Might have a job setting up a loom to weave this kind of geometry eh?

Anyway, I love Piet Mondrian and I love Melin Tregwynt and I love this chair, so I'm, you know, really quite happy.

This was a commission.
