5 imaginative Pinterest finds!

We’ve scoured Pinterest for some of the most unique and different furniture designs we could find…

Pinterest P1

These chunky knit designs will create a very plush stool to sit on.  We love the bight primary colours contrasted with simple wooden legs in a natural finish.

 

Pinterest P2 

This organic shaped wire creates a very pretty base for this table, making it the centre piece of any dining room.

Pinterest P3 

These wooden semi-circular seats look very comfortable, although we can’t help thinking they might not the easiest to get up from!

Pinterest P4 

This vanity area is a great way to use an old bike that would otherwise go to the tip.  The monochrome colour scheme, soft lighting, flowers and artwork gives this look a slight Parisian theme.

Pinterest P5 

This chair seat is made up from fine pieces of wire which gives the illusion of no seat or back

From looking at sites such as Pinterest it’s easy to get your creativity flowing and hopefully inspire you to look for other interesting and unique furniture designs!

5 Beautiful chairs given a Prestige make over

Other the last few weeks we’ve been hard at work transforming the chairs below with our newest fabrics from the Prestige Collection.

STB CMS Strawberry Thief is an intricate and popular design by William Morris.  This classic fabric is perfect for anyone who is inspired by the great designs of the Arts & Crafts movement.

L76 CUG P4 We love this bold geometric print by Linwood in a Current/Gold colourway.  This textured fabric is a great contrast for traditional furniture like we’ve used above or will create a real wow piece when covering retro style pieces.

FRF LIN P1 The Faremont Fleur fabric above in Linen colourway, has an elegant diamond shaped design on a shimmering base colour, and has given this simple chair a new lease of life!

ANE LTE P1 Annis from Sanderson fabrics features a classic thin stripe on a neutral base, and is the perfect match to our co-ordinating fabric – Brecon.  We’ve paired these fabrics with this beautiful dark wood arm chair to create a simple yet elegant look.

 GOG RAP P3

Bright and bold this striped Gogh fabric in Raspberry colourway is a great addition to the Prestige range.  The contrast between the stripes of this fabric and the damask wallpaper are pulled together by the deep pink hues in both.  

These chairs are proof that by working with quality fabrics and skilled craftsmen, you can really create a stunning a look using tired furniture.  If you need any help giving your precious furniture a makeover, then one of our trained Consultants will be happy to talk through the best recovering options for you, in the comfort of your own home.
