Beautifully re-upholstered mid century chairs. Capsule collections, in collaboration with contemporary UK designers.
Inside the Studio
I create beautifully upholstered mid-century chairs in collaboration with artists and textile designers to produce unique designs and limited edition pieces. Intuitive with colour and pattern, and meticulous in my precision when upholstering a chair, I love to develop the beautiful and unusual.
I hand select all the chairs myself and am consistently drawn to chairs from the mid-century era. I work from my workshop and studio in East Sussex. I strip chairs back to the frame before using traditional upholstery methods to restore them. I employ local craftsmen if wood and frame restoration is necessary. Springs and buttons are hand-tied and everything is hand stitched and hand finished to a very high standard. Each piece is unique and a work of craftsmanship. For me, the execution of the finest details are the most satisfying, so when I’m buttoning, adding piping or selecting the colours and contrasting fabrics to make a chair look amazing, these are the moments I find my work at its most rewarding.
