Restored 1980’s Benchair Carver Dining Chair in Bute Wool

Restored Retro Benchair Carver Dining Chair in Bute Wool Grey and Blue

How refreshing is it to see a bold, bright pop of colour on this Benchair carver chair? This super little retro chair has been restored specially for Quirk Lighting to use in their product photo shoots. Quirk design and hand make a range of seriously cool lampshades, and this chair – with its two colours, echoes their ‘pick & mix’ lampshade range perfectly. It has been recovered using Bute Fabric’s Pentland wool in a dark grey to the back of the chair, and a bright turquoise blue to the front.

The chair was originally covered in an old and dirty yellow vinyl. The chair is stamped underneath with the date 7th May 1989. I have now also added the Florrie+Bill stamp to say the chair was restored in 2014, along with a small swatch of the original vinyl.Retro Benchair Carver Dining Chair Retro Benchair CarverI’m certainly looking forward to seeing this chair grace the pages of Quirk’s lighting website alongside their range of bespoke lighting products. I will be getting more of these chairs in stock soon. Please contact me if you are interested in creating your own pick & mix retro Benchair!
