What a Stunning Victorian Chesterfield!

Revamped in Deckchairstripes Interior Stripe Fabric !
Kate from the Original Chair Company has sent us some photographs of an original Victorian Chesterfield c. 1880 with horsehair stuffing and sprung throughout.

Before: in need of a little TLC!
Before: in need of a little TLC!

She tells us that It arrived in a very sorry state, dusty, sunken seat and generally unloved. The upholstery was requiring restoration but the legs were in good condition with the original brass casters.

We have had a few customers recovering these sofas in our fabrics and the results are spectacular – please see our Gallery pics for more examples.

This one has been recovered in our Karting Pink Interior Stripe Fabric, piped exactly as the original and all the stripes beautifully aligned.  We think that it looks stunning!

Deckchairstripes MannequinsP1040553

We commissioned Lucy from Corset Laced Mannequins to make us a model for our new shop – she is called Betty, is absolutely gorgeous and as she is covered in our Darts fabric with fuchsia lacing on the back, she is called Darting Betty – a very racy little number!

Lucy made the mannequins seen on ‘The Paradise’ now airing on TV on Sundays BBC1 – and we are sure that Clara and Denise would approve of our version.
