1960's Tub Armchair

I've been waiting to get my hands on this 1960's tub armchair from a friend for some time. It was in a fairly sorry state sitting at the top of her stairs and I knew it would look terrific re-upholstered in Bute wool.

So I twisted her arm to let me at it.

Now covered in a superb orange tweed, handmade on the Isle of Bute. Even if I say so myself, it is an absolute peach.

This was a commission.

Hand Printed Dining Chairs

A set of four Danish dining chairs covered in hand-printed fabrics by Rhian McLaren

Rhian is a recent fashion/design graduate and this is her first range of hand-printed fabrics. I liked the prints enough to work for nothing on these and help her build a portfolio.

Although mainly for her portfolio, these chairs are for sale. Contact me for details or further info on Rhian's designs.

Armchair in Silk Damask

A very laid-back Edwardian armchair that came to me in very wobbly condition, now covered in a very expensive Sanderson silk damask. This was a commission.

Odds and Ends

I've been too busy to update the website recently, mainly because just like DFS, I have to deliver everything before Christmas. Here are a few of the small projects I managed to photograph during the Maelstrom. Funny how at Christmas everyone needs an extra dining chair.
