This fabulous 1950s reclining armchair has been completely restored and reupholstered using some stunning psychedelic 1960s vintage Heals fabric designed by Colleen Farr.  The chair’s ‘show wood’ (arms and legs) has been sanded back and oiled revealing beautiful beech wood grain, the chair arms are really shapely adding to the overall visual appeal.

The chair back has 3 reclining positions for extra comfort.  The original seat cushion contained an interior spring unit which has been retained within the new cushion, this design of cushion is the ultimate for comfort and long life. All the tension springs on the base of the chair have been replaced with new.

All in all, this is a stylish and funky little chair which has the added bonus of being a comfy recliner, what more could you want?
