Pretty vintage patchwork chairs

On June 30th, 2010 by .

I wanted to share these pretty chairs with you as they are certainly ‘of the moment’ with the strong ‘folk’ trend still going strongthe.  Each swatch of fabric has been carefully handpicked by the designer; Kelly Swallows.  I think this chair would look great as a statement piece in the livingroom or bedroom.  Kelly has just launched her website and is available for commissions.

Here is what Kelly has to say about hers designs-my chairs are individually sourced vintage pieces, each with its own unique charm. The personality of every piece is rediscovered by painstakingly and lovingly choosing an exciting collection of fabrics to create unique pieces with newfound splendour. The fabrics range from vintage to designer including  Kenzo, Zoffany, Liberty, Andrew Martin, Designers Guild, Osborne & Little, Lorca, Mulberry – an eclectic mix with exciting and surprising contrasts.
