stainless steel furniture and mountain goat upholstery

Heres some details of a recent order for north africa, the client wanted polished stainless steel and curly mountain goat hair upholstery on the 2 chaise longue, and aged burgundy leather on the chairs. i like the contrast between the luxurious depth of the upholstery and the polished stainless steel, it would be nice to see them in their final home!

Aged gold leaf steel easy chairs

Here’s some details of an aged gold leaf finish I´ve been working on. The client wanted a look of bronze rather than gold, so it had to be darkened slightly. The gold is sealed with polyurethane so its scratch resistant and hard-wearing. The leather is also aged in an old oak colour. The chair is “easy number 2” .

shopping trolley chair conversion project

ok, first i need to say this was just a little idea i had to use an old trolley that was in the garage!. but the kids really liked it which meant i had to live with it in the house which in turn meant i had to make it slightly presentable! . although this sort of conversion furniture is a world away from what i normally do, it is impossible not to learn something from the process and hopefully integrate it into a ” proper” project. for that reason i´ll put the pics on here…be gentle i know its pretty ugly!!

retro-futurism? new easy chair on the go…

quite pleased with how these are turning out, obviously still needing upholstery and polishing but a definite old school futurist vibe going on…from a time when the future was a bright , fun and exciting place to be! (compare with now!!!)
here’s the pics of the chairs in progress, a swivel version and a fixed leg version…hope you like them 😉
