Commission Number One: Vicky's chair
So, for my first commission of 2012, I am re-upholstering a Parker Knoll armchair. I really enjoyed the last one I did, as the classic shape makes it very versatile when it comes to deciding on the style and pattern of fabric to use. The chair is a very precious item belonging to Vicky and has been in the family for a long time, so I'm particularly keen to make it something special that will continue to be passed through generations. Meeting for a brew in her beautifully accessorised living room, adorned with trinkets and a colour co-ordinated bookcase meant that I got a really good idea of Vicky's style preferences. We're currently on the hunt for the perfect vintage fabric to suit her bold and eclectic taste.
