Arts and Crafts Chair

Blend­worth Alder Fabric

This beau­ti­ful chair is from the Arts and Crafts move­ment from the 19th-cen­tu­ry. The style was extreme­ly dec­o­ra­tive with exquis­ite print, wood­work and met­al work. The shaped wood­en spin­dles are a clas­sic fea­ture from the Arts and Crafts movement. 

The chair and foot­stool have been cov­ered in Alder Hill­side fab­ric by Blend­worth. Inspired by Buck­ing­ham Tapes­tries’. The design is laid out in the for­mat of an orig­i­nal tapes­try hang­ing and print­ed onto a heavy tex­tured linen to cre­ate the impres­sion a real tapes­try cloth. Named after the Alder tree which is native to Britain and improves the fer­til­i­ty of the soil where ever it goes. Folk law states that the green dye from its flow­ers were used to dye the clothes of Robin Hood.
