This is Gypsy2 (her big sister was the original Gypsy).
She's a fully refurbished vintage bentwood rocker, with a hand stitched tapestry Gypsy girl on the back and a candy-striped light cotton canvas seat and outside back.
Very colourful; whimsical and witty (we hope!).
Currently on show in the Rapt showroom, as well as online shop (full details there).


Willow cam with a reversible scatter cush - check one-side...
The latest wingy (Willow) flew into the shop this morning straight into the arms of her new owners, who had seen the Facebook post about her the day before (and knew she was headed for the showroom).
The quickest sale ever!  

Although she's sold, as always, happy to make similar to order if you'd like one.

This little chair has been posted about before… after its spectacular transformation by a master French Polisher. The woodwork really is the standout feature, and especially so since the restoration has revealed the glowing timber colours previously hidden by layers of discoloured lacquer.

The seat cover fabric is a piece of Harris Tweed, which is as close as I could get to the Irish shamrock theme in the inlay work on the inside back rail.
Client was delighted with the result, and so am I.


The makeover of this pair of old club chairs (the ugly sisters) was recently commissioned by the generous parents of two gals (the lovely sisters).  However, the sisters have very different personalities, and this is reflected in the choice of fabrics they each chose for their chair. 
Quite a contrast, eh?
