Large Ottoman and Lloyd Loom chair in Melin Tregwynt wool

Large ottoman and Lloyd Loom chair reupholstered in Melin Tregwynt Vintage Rose Savannah fabric

Over the past three years our lovely octogenarian neighbours who were so welcoming and helpful to us since we moved to this great little village eleven years ago became ill and died within a very short time of each other. As the house was being cleared some of the family decided to leave a few pieces of furniture with us for reupholstery. The above box and below chair were among them.

Sometimes it's the sentimental value of furniture that matters. Reupholstery can transform things that may have little monetary value or may not seem to 'fit' in our contemporary homes and give them huge importance in our lives again. They can connect us to our past while being resolutely contemporary - both old and new at the same time.

It's amazing, give it a go.

In memory of the lovely Ollie and Marion.
