Early Victorian Walnut Ladies Slipper Chair

Early Victorian Walnut  Ladies Slipper Chair

Wow. A wonderful Summer’s day captured in a chair!

We absolutely love this chair and the way that the colours and textures work together. We decided to use Spanish Alhambra velvet with Harris Tweed with gold velvet piping which combine to make a striking piece. The floral fabric both respects the traditional carved floral motifs, whilst adding a contemporary twist. Usefully of modest size, the chair is both comfortable, elegant and very useable.

It has been fully restored using traditional techniques and materials with a sprung seat and original ornamental castors.

About Harris Tweed:

“Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament. Handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.” -The Harris Tweed Authority

We would be delighted if you wish to visit Salisbury to view any item before buying to enable you to appreciate the quality of our work. The only concession we make to traditional methods is use of a staple gun which is far kinder to old furniture frames than tacks.
