Exhibiting at The Allpress Gallery at the moment are these unique, beautifully crafted pieces of furniture, using recycled aged timber.
“I make, not manufacture – crafting each piece to have integrity, simplicity and strength with a fresh contemporary aesthetic. It’s locally made furniture – minimal in its complexity, focussed on quality, form and function.” William Worsp, WRW & Co, Raglan.
The brief from my clients was to find the perfect fabric for these revitalised chairs. The chairs had evolved from dark varnished wood to this gorgeous french country look. Their new home was to be in a rural setting; the fabric needed to be invincible, to withstand children, their feet, their food, and of course the odd splash of red wine. Above all they needed to look fabulous. After visiting many fabric houses I found this outdoor fabric from Westbury in Parnell. As well as being able to withstand a fair amount of cleaning, the fabric looks fantastic – a perfect blend of French and New Zealand country.
Westbury is a trade only fabric house, so please do give me a call if you need help and inspiration with sourcing fabric for your upholstering of furniture, or curtains. As a Designer I have access to quality fabric houses, and their fabric ranges, so please do not hesitate if you need assistance.
