Latest Project: Purple Retro Scallop Back Chair

Purple Wool Retro Chair

This is one of our latest retro chairs we have restored. The original chair was tatty and dirty, so once we stripped the old fabrics and fillings, we were left with a beautiful frame to work with. This chair dates from around the 1950's and its origin is Germany. The frame is a solid hardwood frame and is weighty and we decided to keep and repair the original traditionally sprung seat. 

I decided that a scallop back detail would add some interest to this chair, and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

Purple Wool Linwood Chair

The fabric I chose is a wool mix fabric from Linwood called 'Lana' in the Raisin colourway. It's a very dark purple-blue and really soft to the touch. 

Purple Wool Retro Chair

This chair is around the same size as our cocktail chairs, and would look great as an occasional chair in the living room or the bedroom.

As ever, this is a Florrie + Bill one-off exclusive piece so there is only one available. It's priced at £475 so go and get it before its gone! Shop online here.
