Parker Knoll Armchairs in Melin Tregwynt wool

A pair of 1960's Parker Knoll 988 'King & Queen' armchairs in Melin Tregwynt Mondo Sage wool.

I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I saw these in a skip in my local recycling centre. I fished them out and was delighted to find the frames were still in excellent condition.

After a full restoration, they are now covered in 100% wool by these great people.

'King and Queen' means one is smaller than the other, but in this case they're identical chairs but one has wings. I think we'll call the one with wings the Queen rather than the King if that's ok with you?

These chairs are for sale at £1200 for the pair.

1930's armchair in St. Jude's fabric

A 1930's armchair restored and reupholstered in St.Jude's Treehouse linen.

This customer has a very 1950's style home and when I showed her the St. Jude's early range, she went straight for this pattern. It goes well on the simple structure of this chair.

 Seat detail.

This was a commission.

Bus Stop Chair at Rhosaman

Here's a chair I saved from the dump - now available for bus-waiting purposes on the A4068 between Rhosaman and Cymllynfell.

I painted the chair and covered it in a scrap of damaged Welsh blanket (or carthen), so it looks quite appropriate on the southern edge of the Black Mountain.

And, what do you know? it even has a little plastic sheep tacked to the foot rail.
