Recent Projects

Take a browse through a small selection of my most recent projects that have sold or gone off to take pride of place in their homes. These are a mixture of my own designs or commissioned work for clients. All of them are utterly unique – no repeats, ever.

The Shalini Dragonfly Chair

Hand painted dragonflies on silk, carefully appliquéd onto a beautiful Indian silk, shot with gold thread and peacock greens to give the iridescent quality of a dragonfly. A timeless classic style but utterly original.

Totally thrilled by the three pieces that Ella designed and produced for me. More than simply meeting and matching my wishes, she picked up the brief and took it to a different level. Her inspiration exudes through these brilliantly executed items. Individual and completely unique, she has engaged her creativity and imagination to riotous success. All of the items occupy pride of place in my home and the fourth is in production…

Antique Prie-Dieu with Embroidered Barn Owl

A beautiful prayer chair featuring a unique design of a barn owl hunting a mouse in the light of the full moon. The little mouse runs through the undergrowth of silk ribbon embroidered cow parsley and dandelions as he tries to escape the owl.

Victorian Rocking Chair with Stunning Peacock Fabric

This fabulous Victorian rocking chair was fully restored and re-upholstered in this gorgeous peacock fabric. It is complimented with a teal velvet to give an interesting contrast and mix of textures. I love the way it is in keeping with the feel of the chair but has a bit of a contemporary twist.

Moon Gazing Hare Chair

A unique design of a handsome hare gazing up at the full moon, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the English countryside. Beautiful fabrics, a variety of textile techniques have transformed this upcycled Victorian chair into something rather special.

Percy Peacock Pouffe

A retro 1960’s TV pouffe in faded red vinyl is transformed with specially printed peacock fabric, gold silk, navy velvet and hand embroidery into a truly unique statement piece.

Mr Peacock is utterly gorgeous, I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase from the fantastic Ella Jenkins. Apart from being one of the warmest souls you could wish to meet, Ella is the most amazingly talented and original designer of beautiful and unique pieces.

George’s Chair

This classic 1937 Parker Knoll armchair once belonged to a gentleman called George – a WWII navy veteran. George was a keen gardener who grew everything you could imagine. This chair is my tribute to George and his dog Patch – oh, and the infamous dancing chickens.

Ella, you must stand up and take 3 bows after the production of this wonderful chair. It’s absolutely lovely and I am truly delighted with it. Thanks for putting so much of yourself into it and the care you took. A very easy trouble free transaction. I will enjoy it.

Fox and Hare Chair

1920’s American style rocking chair has been given a transformation with a unique landscape design of a hare moon gazing up a full moon. Meanwhile, Mr Fox is staring up at the hare, probably thinking about his dinner for the night.

Thank you so much for the fabulous chair. I LOVE it! It will look lovely in our cottage.

Rural Landscape Chair

This dilapidated Victorian nursing chair is now a statement piece of Art! Featuring a unique landscape of fields, a farmhouse and even cows climbing a hill. I love the combination of natural fabrics including Liberty prints and Saville Row suiting.

Just lovely, the chair is everything I hoped it would be. What a talented lady.

Seagull & Seascape Chair

Take a vintage 1950’s Parker Knoll armchair, upcycle it and grab some inspiration from a Sir Kyffin Williams painting and this is the stunning result.

Absolutely gorgeous. Unique. Lovely craftsmanship and a great person to buy from. I would certainly purchase from Ella Jenkins again
