A beautiful original 1950's Chair, carefully restored and upcycled.
This Genovesa Chair is a delicate British-made, button-backed beauty!
Designed and made in the 1950's, it embodies the spirit of the age when furniture design moved from dark and heavy to light, modern and playful in the family home.
A perfect size for the sitting room, bedroom or conservatory, it has been lovingly upcycled in our workshop with British craftsmenship, using cutting edge designs from our friends at Korla, a new design company based in London with whom we're launching this season's range of chairs.
This original vintage chair is available in two colourways, with Korla's phoenix dusk on the front or the back of the chair, and co-ordinating Emerald Green fabrics and trims from Bute Fabrics. Each chair is unique, but similar cocktail chairs can be made to order in the full range of Korla fabrics, so do contact us for samples of our fabrics and we'll pop them in the post!
We aim to provide high design products without the environmental impact, so all our furniture is vintage, reducing demand for new natural resources such as timber. We seek to reduce our environmental footprint further by reducing waste, using eco-friendly fabrics and co-ordinating deliveries whenever possible.
This chair has been carefully upcycled from the sturdy woodern frame upwards with all new materials.
This chair has been recovered in Phoenix Dusk by Korla, a new design company based in London and Singapore, made from 100% cotton, and Bute Skye fabric, which is 85% wool.
It has been scotchguarded for greater protection against accidental spills, but gentle regular maintenance is suggested to keep it looking its best. The chair legs have been stripped, sanded and rewaxed, and show light signs of age as would be expected on a vintage piece.
