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.

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.

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
