This is an amazing VW camper that I've been working on over the last few months. A pretty big undertaking using lots of different skills! I did the front seats, hammocks and hammock holders, buddy seat, box cushions for the bed, door cards, headlining (ceiling!!!), curtains and tie-backs. She's finally ready and heading for a trip to the Grand Prix at Silverston (although I don't think she's taking part).
Traditionally upholstered using webbing, hessian and horse-hair to form a base. This is then stitched 3 times to create a rolled edge. A final filling of horse-hair creates a comfortable cushion. The top fabric was screen printed using an original ration book from WWII. A true original..,
Here are some retro chairs that I found looking a bit sorry for themselves at auction. But what a transformation. They just looked amazing when finished and the fabric that my customer chose was perfect. Stilin fabric from Warwick that has a great print with a retro vibe. The arms of these chairs are just grand!
How amazing is this chair? It's an Arts and Crafts Dining Chair that I was commissioned to do by a customer who wanted something special for her sister's Christmas present. She wanted to get involved in the project so had a few upholstery lessons too and this is what we created! Covered in Abraham Moon with a bright pink trim!
Here's an Ercol easy chair that I found. These chairs are so comfortable! My customer chose Warwick Link fabric which has a great retro vibe. She was also wanting a footstool and luckily I managed to find this one that matched the chair perfectly. The footstool is so big that the pair are more like a chaise - relaxing times!!
Delivered just in time for Christmas - 3 wise men (although I think they're actually female)! Super cool bar stools covered in purple velvet from Warwick fabrics. They also have contrasting backs in slate grey.
A design classic by Ercol. This easy chair is so comfortable with its reclined position. My customer picked a super snazzy fabric print create a truly one off piece!
This was such a great chair to work on. It was traditionally upholstered using horse hair, hessian and stitching. A base that will last and lifetime! It was finished in this amazing Korla fabric with a contrasting double piped trim - just beautiful!
As well as selling original work, I'm happy to take commissions. Here's a selection of my recent projects...
