Meet the new addition to the ‘Flocktail‘ Vintage Cocktail Chair Collection for SS15 – ‘Flint’.
With a bold, angular monochrome pattern it certainly makes a statement! The fabric is from the new collection by Flock, and is by designer Gyeongmi Shin. The chairs are all original vintage cocktail chairs, which have been fully restored by our expert upholsterers in Long Eaton, UK. The legs on this model have been completely stripped, and french polished to an ebony colour, to complete the look.
Yellow Bute Wool Chair available here
If you love the monochrome look, Flint is now available to purchase on the website here. You can also view the ‘Lookbook’ to see how to style it here.

During London Design Festival last month, the Florrie+Bill ‘Flocktails’ were on display at the Flock Textiles stand at TENT London.
The ‘Flocktail‘ cocktail chairs are the collaboration between Florrie+Bill and Flock fabrics.
The chairs looked stunning on the stand, and sat at home amongst the current (and new!) Flock fabric designs. The restored cocktail chairs received a whole load of attention, many lovely comments and some new retail orders (…more about those soon!).
The Flocktails are now available to purchase online at www.florrieandbill.com and are available in five different Flock fabric designs.

I’m thrilled to announce that my restored vintage cocktail chairs which I have launched in collaboration with Flock are now available to purchase online.
A collection of vintage 1950’s Danish cocktail chairs have been recovered in fabrics from the Flock range. Flock work with recent graduate surface designers to create beautiful textiles for interiors, and the designers get to keep their name to their designs – receiving a royalty for every metre of fabric sold. Their collections are carefully curated, with a focus on geometry and colour, printing all of the designs digitally in the UK on 100% linens or sumptuous velvets.
Each vintage chair has been fully stripped back to the hardwood frame and coil sprung seat and completely restored. They have been professionally reupholstered by my Long Eaton based upholsterer – using a mix of traditional and modern techniques. They include horsehair stuffed seats with new webbing and foams to the curved backs to provide superior comfort and support.
There are a few chairs available in stock to purchase now with an immediate delivery. Once out of stock they can be pre-ordered, and will be restored and delivered within a 4 – 6 week lead-time.
Below are images of the range available. Thanks to Holly Booth for the photography.
A collection of scatter cushions will be launching on the Florrie+Bill website soon.
What do you get when you take a curvy little vintage cocktail chair and throw the fabulous Flock fabrics into the mix? Something quite spectacular!
Florrie + Bill is launching a range of restored and reupholstered vintage 1950’s Danish cocktail chairs in collaboration with Flock fabrics. Flock showcases colourful and geometric fabrics with designs by Cerys Ackland, Lucy Rainbow, Angela Johnston and Rachel Parker. All are recent graduate designers who are provided with a rare platform to showcase their talent. All the designers get to keep their name to their work and receive a royalty for every metre of fabric sold. All fabrics are digitally printed or screen printed by hand in the UK.
More information and photographs will be released early next week, with the chairs available for pre-order on the website. For now, here are a few teaser photos! For press enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
