A HISTORY LESSON ON PRUSSIAN BLUE:
Did you know that Prussian blue was the link between art and science that transformed the world of paint? Let’s not forget that before the 18th century, paint was made from natural sources such as plants and rocks. As far back as the 13th century, artists created the first blue from lapis lazuli, which was a pigment more valuable than gold!
Fast forward to 1704, when an accident in a lab in Berlin changed the course of art forever. A chemist rushing to create a batch of cochineal red (made from bugs) accidentally used potash contaminated by (the iron in) animal blood that turned the concoction a deep blue. This new blue pigment became known as Prussian blue!
Pictured here in a small size with mahogany legs and gold castors, since all of our handcrafted chairs are made to order, if you prefer a different leg or castors, or if you would like contrasting coloured buttons or piping simply call or email us to discuss your preferred specifications.
Please note if you want longer legs on a small or medium chair, please note that we charge an additional £50 (please speak to us if you are unsure about leg heights!)
The large sized frame comes with longer legs already inbuilt. Prices for customisations vary, depending on what your specifications are. If you wish to have piping on the back and just above the front legs we charge an additional £60 (see Hepburn, Kilgour, Beau & Marlene lounge chairs).
Since all of our handcrafted seating is made to order, please allow up to 8 weeks for pieces to be made – please contact for further details.

PLEASE READ OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE ORDERING:
Please note that we do not offer refunds / returns on any of our handcrafted seating range as these items are all made to order. The onus is on the customer to make sure that the measurements and the fabric will fit and indeed suit your interior space. If you have any queries about dimensions please feel free to email or call us BEFORE you order a chair, we are more than happy to help in any way we can. Being a small family run shop we simply do not have the space to store returned goods that have been returned simply because a customer has misjudged their dimensions or fabric choices.
If you require samples we will always endeavour to send these, so please don’t be scared to ask! In the same way that paint swatches always differ online, so do colours and textures on fabric!
