About Me

My photo
I'm lucky to be able to work from our beautiful Victorian home in Hertordshire designing and reinventing fabulous vintage chairs in vibrant patchwork. Kelly Swallow’s chairs are all individually sourced , each with its own unique charm. The personality of every piece is rediscovered by painstakingly and lovingly choosing an exciting collection of fabrics to create unique pieces with newfound splendour. The fabrics range from vintage to designer including Kenzo, Zoffany, Liberty, Andrew Martin, Designers Guild, Osborne & Little, Lorca, Mulberry - an eclectic mix with exciting and surprising contrasts. I sell ‘ready to go’ pieces and also take commissions, allowing clients to be involved in creating a bespoke piece. www.kellyswallow.co.uk info@kellyswallow.co.uk

Elegant vintage tub chair in patchwork

1, originally uploaded by kelly swallow patchwork chairs.

This is one of a pair of chairs which I sourced. The shape is beautiful, quite a small low elegant chair but also very comfortable.
I used quite a lot of Designers Guild fabric in this chair mixed in with some Andrew Martin and Lorca (to mention just a few) with some elegant stripes for contrast.
