About our Chairs
100% British Design and Craftsmanship.
The tubular steel frames together with the laminated ply backs and seats are manufactured in the UK in the same traditional manner the originals were back in the 1930's -1960's. Each chair then has its contemporary stripes hand-painted on and is lacquered and assembled to order.
Because of the handcrafted nature of the product each chair bears its own subtle differences and characteristics. The frames (chose from clear powder coated natural steel or 4 powder coated colours), together with the beautiful variations in the graining patterns of the backs and seats, means that each chair is truly a unique piece in its own right.
In keeping with Lesley and Olivia's utilitarian/industrial concept the product is purposely ‘over-engineered’ with the frames in 22mm steel tube and the backs and seats in 12mm laminated ply. It is a chair designed to last a very long time.
Beautiful pieces of furniture that have the ability to uplift, transform and enhance any space and will look only better as they age.

The photographs throughout this website endeavour to portray the chairs as authentically as possible. However, as described above, because of the handmade nature of the product each chair will have its own subtle characteristics - particularly in the graining patterns of the beech seats and backs - all part of the beauty and charm of each piece.
