Armchair in Melin Tregwynt wool

A 1990's armchair re-upholstered in Melin Tregwynt Luna Autumn wool.

This customer spent ages looking for a comfortable armchair to replace their own slightly worn-out one but drew a blank. They gave me a call, I showed them my Welsh wool patterns - and now they have this.

Wool is such a great fabric for furniture because it is warm and comfortable. This pattern is very contemporary but looks traditional on this chair and will fit in to the customer's home well.

This is 100% wool doublecloth, woven in Wales by these fabulous people.

This was a commission - if you're cool enough to commission a chair in a fabric as wonderful as this then let me know, it's much less expensive than you think.

Lloyd Loom Armchairs in Welsh Blankets

Two different Lloyd Loom chairs re-painted and re-upholstered using different sides of a Welsh blanket or 'Carthen'.

I love Welsh wool and use it wherever possible but have a policy not to 'cut' them so I never use Welsh blankets that are in good condition, I think they're best kept as blankets. Here I found one that was very damaged and managed to salvage a few useable pieces. There are minor flaws in these too, so these chairs are available at a very reasonable price.

£95 per chair - can't be bad.
