Bec Duff from Kambamboo approached us about upholstering a chair in her hand screen-printed upholstery fabric. We had 'the best seat in the house' for her and combined her teal coloured 'Whale Tail' design with an acid yellow eco-wool felt from Instyle fabrics.
We picked up this little beauty, a 1960's Wrightbilt Australian 'T.V. chair' from our favourite (secret) seaside town, it was covered in a floral tapestry which we valued so much, we left the seat cushion on the roof as we drove off. I thought that all the headlight flashes were warning me of imminent danger - snake on the road, police, etc but no, we realised an hour later down the road...
It's first portrait after first stage wood and upholstery stripping (above). That's the original footstool which we modified to suit the chair.
I know this is an 'ad-free blog' but adverts from the 60's seem a whole lot less offensive than their contemporary counterparts, and you'll love this and have the added bonus of a catchy tune in your head for the rest of your fun-filled day. It's featuring this very chair..
Here she is posing for her portrait before she left home.
