Vintage flair

As much as I love and choose chairs for aesthetic reasons, I also adore chairs with a good story behind them.

Reusing furniture is a hot topic right now, it's a way of being eco friendly and also injecting some vintage style into the home.

Milly Rose is a relatively new interiors company and has been started using a simple, yet really clever idea.

Owner Alison Parmar scours the UK looking for beautiful chairs that have seen better days and then takes them home, strips the frame and reupholsters them in a wide range of stunning fabrics.

I particularly like this Holly desk chair which uses fabric from Harlequin.

They say the best ideas are often the simplest and how I wish I'd come up with this one...
