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
