VINTAGE CHAIRS REIMAGINED

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.

HAND CRAFTED DESIGNS

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.

To contact Vivien please ring her on 01403 822328 or on her Mobile which is 07944202903

Vintage Chairs Re-imagined can be seen at Smithbrook Kilns in Cranleigh Surrey GU6 8JJ (just 15 minutes from Guildford).
