My 1970’s chairs, upholstered in orange plastic that I picked up for not-very-much, in an antique shop in Fulham, have finally been delivered.
I went for a plain charcoal-y wool fabric. Normally I would have chosen a more popping colour, but we are moving and I have no idea were they will fit in the new place.
The fabric is from Bute, a Scottish contemporary textile company, they are all about colour, texture and performance. Bute have designed and woven wool since 1947 on the Isle of Bute and now they collaborate with designers such as Matthew Hilton, Jasper Morrison and Tom Dixon.
Dixon made a greeny bobbly wool fabric I can’t stop thinking about!
