Edwardian tub chair in Bute tweed

An Edwardian tub chair reupholstered in 100% wool tweed by Bute Fabrics.

Edwardian furniture is often referred to as 'elegant', probably because it tends towards finer and taller legs. Also you often get these sharply angled legs with squared-off castors that are a clear departure from their Victorian lathe turned predecessors. But whichever way you look at it, and regardless of age, the tub chair is irrevocably Victorian; its rolled curves and horseshoe shape resembling its namesake - the Victorian bath.

And this one is no exception, particularly the rolled edge on the extended back - it could be a perfect slice of bathtub.

But from the back it might be some sort of Pokemon, don't you think? And of course Pokemon are entirely Edwardian...

This was a commission.
