Pair of vintage leather club chairs | H is for Home

Anyone after some vintage leather club chairs? We picked this pair up last week and they’ve just gone into our shop space.

When we bought them they looked very tired, dry and dusty. So we had a TLC day applying leather cream and wood wax – and also tacked and glued some small rips and loose Hessian lining. We’ve put a bit of warmth and colour into them. The patina will continue to improve with continued handling (rubbing your hands along the arms as you sit in front of a wood-burner with a glass of wine always helps!).

They’re very comfortable indeed, so sitting in front of a fire with a glass of wine shouldn’t be too much of a chore. They’re available to collect from here in Todmorden – they’re priced at £795 the pair. Any questions, just drop us a line.

Price Points: Quilted seating

Selection of quilted seating options | H is for Home

Quilted homewares are nothing new. There have a long history of (mainly) women – around the world – getting together to sew, share and support each other as they create magnificent works of art.

Recently, we’ve been noticing a big resurgence in quilted soft furnishings; this time, it’s no longer confined to blankets, bedspreads and throws. Quilted seating is offering up a twist on the classics with all new patterns, colours and materials.

Quilted chairs and sofas are so tactile and inviting – sitting or reclining on one is like getting a big warm hug!

  1. Meritalia La Michetta modular sofa: £1,013.15 – £1,982.24 per unit
  2. Percy armchair: £1,190, Sofa.com (available end August 2017)
  3. Quilt armchair by Established & Sons: £4,131.00

vintage leatherette Art Deco 3-piece suite

We’re super-pleased with this purchase we made on Thursday. We’ve been on the hunt for a club chair for some time…

vintage leatherette Art Deco 3-piece suite

…then not only did we get a club chair, we got two club chairs… and a matching 2-seater sofa!!

It’s an original 1930s Art Deco suite, re-upholstered in the 1960s in a tan leatherette. Fantastic shape, comfortable with lovely stud detailing.

And a little extra… the lady who sold it says it was re-covered in the same leatherette as was used for Concorde. We’re trying to track down some old photos from the plane or Concorde airport lounge interior.

Fudge approves – and has made himself very much at home!

It’s found a home in our top floor bedroom/lounge. We spent the entire day re-arranging everything to accommodate it.

It was worth it though… there’ll be many books read in these chairs…  cups of tea /glasses of wine drunk, crackling fires watched.  We love it already!
