Bringing rescued antique and vintage chairs back to life.

The first thing I did when I took retirement in 2010 was to take up upholstery; I knew I'd love it and I was right, I get so much pleasure from transforming tired old chairs into contemporary pieces that zing again with fresh new upholstery and covers . It gives me the opportunity to use my furniture restoration, sewing and upholstery skills and at the same time to work with a huge range of gorgeous textiles. I love fabrics so much that I occasionally buy the fabric first then have to find a chair that would do justice to it. Any upholsterer would tell you this is definitely not the sensible way to do it!

One of the happy outcomes of my upholstery work is that each project generates varying amounts of leftover fabric which lend themselves perfectly to making into cushions. Once a year I gather up all my leftover fabric pieces and get sewing. I really hope you like the results.
