Mini at the Ideal Home Show

The Classic Mini is considered the British icon of the sixties, and is still one of the most popular cars today.  Born in the late fifties the Minis small size has influenced a generation of car makers, as well as appearing in films such as The Italian Job and Mr Bean.

Here at Plumbs we’ve been busy turning the front part of this classic piece of design into a unique seat. Here’s how we did it...


The Mini is stripped back to be cleaned and prepped for its transformation.

We choose a classic red colour to complement the gold wheels.

We have used beautiful red leather and a coordinating fabric by Swaffer to upholster the seat that now sits in the Mini.


The finished article! What a stunning transformation.  If you’re at The Ideal Home Show why come to stand 1G30 and see it for yourself!
