Imagine our chairs in your home

Victorian Chesterfield Tub

A Victorian button back Chesterfield grandfather chair. This chair has been in the family since the 30’s. It represents nostalgia of all the things that were good and great. It was made in the days when craftsmen were highly valued and has a wealth of history.


Parker Knoll Danish Style Chair

These chairs did everything together from the time that they got to meet, they were inseparable. We call them Leo and Gina. They liked the same styles, they had an eye for beauty and detail.They started out in a small modest apartment/flat. They took them to every place that they lived, taking great care of them. We love them so much, we upholstered them in in an Italian striped fabric with an Italian leather back with studs. The chairs were given the thumbs up by all who see them. These lovely Parker Knoll chairs will grace any small apartment or cottage with style or comfort-they have a moulded lumbar back support.

From £2,050

1950s Cocktail Chairs

They spent their early life in the theatre and film industry in the 1950’s. We call them Tina & Terry. They were much loved by the cast who promptly took them home and kept them. They were great companions around the cocktail table and when we saw them we realised that they were those ‘little gems’ that you don’t get to see very often. We upholstered them in a Colefax and Fowler moleskin velvet. We love them and hope that you do too!

From £1,850 (for the pair)

Parker Knoll Rocking Chair

A vintage Parker Knoll rocking chair. We call this chair Oasis. It has been upholstered in a Jim Thompson fabric (Intara). This fabric has the most amazing quality and style with references to ancient Thai temples. We love working with such fabrics that complement the stories that we share about our chairs. It has been lovingly restored and reupholstered giving it a new lease of life. Create your own peaceful oasis by sitting in this chair.

From £1,850

Paker Knoll Tub Chair

Ruby joins our family of Parker Knoll reimagined chairs. She has a distinctive personality of being mysterious and stylish. The perfect chair for that quiet moment. Reupholstered in a designer (Fryett’s) animal print fabric with a contrasting James Hare (Corolla) fabric in silver. The beautiful wooden features have been lovingly restored and are silky to the touch.

From £1,250

Parker Knoll Tub Chair

We call this chair Diana. Diana is the huntress. Diana is upholstered in a burnt orange moleskin velvet with a contrasting leopard velvet fabric. The studs down the side finish it off beautifully. The chair represents good style, taste, grace and comfort.

From £1,050


Vintage chairs come in all shapes and sizes, built by craftsmen in an era of immense skill. From my love of fabrics, colour, quirkiness and design that may be lost in the future generations, I am fulfilling my dream and passion to reimagine these lovely chairs.

Chairs for the man of the house, chairs for the family, comfortable chairs, chairs that can be your sanctuary. In times gone by everybody had their own chair, this enables you to relax in your own space however big or small it may be.



Unique, individual, bespoke and lovingly restored by a team of highly skilled professional antique restorers and upholsterers with an eye for something different and that is what we are, something very different!

We use lovely designer fabrics like Zoffany, Colefax & Fowler, Osborne & Little, Clarke & Clarke plus wonderful Italian brocades these are just some of the wonderful designer fabrics that we use.

A little about Vivien who set up Vintage Chairs Reimagined

It all started when she saw the film ‘Calamity Jane’ and the transformation of the old wooden shack into an amazing cabin. Her love of fabrics, colour, uniqueness, quirkiness has been a passion from childhood. Having had the advantage of re-developing a large Victorian Manor House she fulfilled her ambition for changing old to new.

Becoming aware that old Victorian, Edwardian and Retro Chairs were being lost to the skip the bonfire, the garage or the barn she decided to start to rescue the craftsmanship and the wonderful styles from the past to give them a new life.

What started as a few chairs then grew and in fact is still growing! With her unique style using only the best fabrics, craftsmen, antique restorers and upholsterers she has embarked on her quest to re-imagine her chairs. All her chairs are (unless a pair) one offs with never the same chair repeated.

She also takes commissions and is happy to chat to you about your individual needs. By using her unique style and flair the sympathetically reupholstered chairs can fit in any environment. Some of her chairs are indeed travelling far and wide now as did the Victorians and Edwardians to places like America, Middle East, Canada and Europe.
