This chair came to me in rather a sad state, with the original cover on it that had done a pretty good job considering its 50+ years of service! Its now been given a new lease of life covered in this gorgeous mustardy yellow velvet. I have to admit that this was not an easy undertaking as the shape of the chair is quite unforgiving and much of this is hand stitched.
This chair is very much like the 1962 G-Plan swivel chair, its absolutely of this era but has no deep buttoning allowing this chair a beautiful sweep of taut fabric across the inside back. For the outside back I wanted to further enhance the sculptural qualities of this chair and have wrapped one cut of smooth velvet around the back, the back of the wings and creeping over the edge of the out side arms.
