I have acquired some rather beautiful old chairs. They are being restored and re-upholstered at the Woodworks, a social enterprise in Bath. These chairs were donated and come with a history and it would be interesting to know what it is. This made me think of two quotes from Grayson Perry from the Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman. “The Look of age is also an important component of what we find beautiful.” And … “Age lends authority to an object”.
These chairs will eventually be covered with my own designed fabric. This will add another layer to the chairs’ history.
My blog will chart the progress of the chairs.
