cane and tapestry Now SOLD
damask and show-wood now SOLD
velvet, buttoned
This is the new business |I have started up.   It is quite difficult to find the sort of chair that
is comfortable, supportive and attractive enough to mix in with traditional country house furnishing.  I have finished with soft, spongey easy chairs for my own use - too low and very difficult to heave out of without a helping arm and hand!  If you know what I mean, you might be interested in the collection of traditionally upholstered armchairs I have collected during the last few months, either late Victorian with good springs and horsehair under, or others, more elegant, often with polished show-wood and a little inlay, from the Edwardian period.  All have been up-graded, dry cleaned, polished and re-upholstered where necessary and are ready for use.  The colours range from pinky red to deep wine, or pale Spring green to deep bottle velvet, with plenty of newly designed cushions in traditional heavy materials for constant use and support. The prices range from £150 upwards and the new cushions will be £30, so if you have been looking in antique shops for these sort of chairs, you will realise that these prices are very reasonable.  I can have chairs covered bespoke with your own materials by my very skilled upholsterer who only uses traditional materials - no foam!.  Those who know me well, know that I like turning over my stock as fast as I can and my interest and pleasure is to find more!.  ~All chairs can be seen in 2 very cosy welcoming showrooms carpeted and with fires, so you can get a good impression of how they might fit in your own sitting/dining/drawing room.  Just give me a phone call  01225 866136 to make an appointment to view at Bradford on Avon. nr. Bath.  If you visit my garage next to the Mason's Hall, Bradford on Avon on Saturday, Sept 14th, you can see, and sit in, a good selection, and view a big batch of period chateau curtains, the last remains of my textile collection which I am closing down as |I can no longer travel to France to get new stock. Very sad!!
