Now for something completely different – Retro Style Chairs

Retro G Plan Fresco Dining Chairs 1970’s.

My current project is a very different in style not shabby chic but Retro. I first saw, and fell in love with, the fabric on a visit to  Bell House Fabrics  in Cranbrook, Kent; a wonderful shop with a huge range of beautiful, high quality, fabrics and helpful staff.  These 1970’s chairs had been abandoned in the back of a garage, and were in a very sorry state but seemed to fit nicely with the fabric to create a beautiful retro feel.
