A classic antique Georgian chair with a lyre style back that has been fully refurbished and re-upholstered by myself using traditional methods.
Taking my inspiration from the beautiful Autumn landscape, I selected a lovely dark green velvet as the backdrop to my design featuring swirling leaves in a variety of autumnal colours. I have used velvet, silk and linens to create the leaves.
I decided to add a cheeky red squirrel to the scene. He is peeping from the side of the chair seat and I have named him Cyril the Squirrel. Textile techniques used to create this unique design include applique, machine & hand embroidery.
It’s a soft and subtle design, but utterly unique. A blend of traditional upholstery with textile art.
I love the way a contemporary coloured fabric has given a complete new lease of life to this classic, antique chair, which would look just as good in a contemporary or traditional setting.
The woodwork has been cleaned up with my Dad’s secret recipe, (he was a French Polisher by trade) and it now has a lovely patina to it revealing the natural beauty of the wood. The chair has a good sized, comfortable (firm) seat, the frame is also very solid, this type of chair was certainly built to last but it does have a few marks and dings conmesurate with its age.
It would make a lovely addition to your bedroom, hallway or even as an office chair. If you are worried about how hard wearing the design on the seat, don’t be. All my pieces are designed to be useful as well as beautiful!
