Inspiration

I had to evict the antique dealer and his cup of coffee from this stool to have a look at it. I assumed it was a traditional English style because of the feet and legs but when I took off the stained old fabric and filthy stuffing I found the corners had been shaped with nice little labels in French, I guess the 'Queen Anne leg' travelled abroad ...

I have spent hours browsing the delights of www.africanfabric.co.uk and was so pleased when they started stocking a few upholstery weight cottons - and then found the buttons to match!

It has turned out alright I think, though I'm not sure Queen Anne would have approved, she'd probably have preferred a good brocade ... and a straight leg ...
