Although the most striking pieces are the vibrant patchwork chairs there are a huge collection of colours and designs to choose from.

Kelly uses vintage fabrics taken from old grain sacks, linen and Art Deco mangle cloths from France, Hungary and Germany, to restore and cover the old chairs, making this a great way of reusing and recycling cloth.

When we first saw Kelly’s designs at the Old Cinema in London we were struck by the playful look of the furniture, however it has been restored to an exceptionally high standard and along with it’s traditional feel these are unique pieces which are made to last.
