I bought this chair at an antiques fair. It was in a pretty sad condition yet I was immediately struck by it, the dark wood, the high back and all those beautiful bobbly bobbins! Upholstery skills give you the ability to imagine a bright future for battered and sagging pieces of furniture!

I tried out various fabrics on it including a dark red Laura Ashley floral but this is the one that turned the chair into a 'stunner', (as the Pre-Raphaelites would have said!). It reminds me of Missoni but I now know this is a traditional 'cut-flame' design
