A classic Georgian Hepplewhite style chair with pierced splat back and carved detail that has been fully refurbished and re-upholstered by myself.
Taking my inspiration from a photograph taken by a friend of Burghley House at night, I selected an midnight blue fabric by Designer’s Guild which has an amazing sheen to it that is perfect for the midnight sky.
The outline silhouette of Burghley House (Stamford, Lincolnshire) has been appliqued in black velvet and the fabulous railings – a signature of this stately home, have been painstakingly hand embroidered.
Burghley House is one of grandest house of the Elizabethan age. Burghley was built and designed by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Elizabeth I
The result is an utterly unique design. A blend of traditional upholstery with textile art. It has been designed to be used as a chair, not just admired.
I love the way contemporary fabrics 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 chair has a good sized, comfortable (firm) seat, the frame is also very solid, this type of chair was certainly built to last.
It would make a lovely addition to your bedroom, hallway or even as an office chair.
The chair measures: 38″ x H, 22.5″ x W, 20″ x D
