Sitting pretty

About 18 months ago, I told you about this chair that I picked up for a bargain price on eBay. The style, with wooden slats and a reclining back, is known as a Morris chair, so I thought it was only right to use William Morris fabric (also found on eBay) to make covers for it. Despite being designed over 100 years ago, I think the big scale and graphic style of this fabric give it quite a contemporary look. I went for the black and taupe colourway so that it will sit happily anywhere in the house - at the moment it is in the corner of the dining room, where I like to relax with a cup of tea and a good book. I'm sure it'll look even better when the ancient patterned carpets are finally sent on their way to carpet heaven (or hell!).
