Project Description

Upcycled Red Spot

This chair was pulled from a skip twice. My clients friend asked to put a few items in their skip, of which one was this chair which they had plucked from a skip some years before. When my client spotted the chair she rescued it and then it sat in her basement for 10 years. Finally my client dug this chair out and asked me if it was worth saving. This is still one of my favourite chairs, I love the wood and it’s shape. The dark brown varnish on the wood was removed, the pirelli webbing was brittle and replaced, a new foam seat pad inserted and lastly recovered in the clients choice of fabric from Jane Churchill.
