In the true sense of the word (for a change), this distinctive chair is unique: a single piece of furniture made for Burford, upholstered in a modern kilim. While the pattern and colours of the weave are contemporary, the quality of the fabric reflects years of artisanal skill and tradition. The specification of the chair, however, is also up to date making it an extremely comfortable and desirable piece of furniture.

The compact size of this armchair with its pastel colours, recommend it for a sitting room or a bedroom. Deep and comfortable to sit in, it is beautifully detailed: the gently scrolled ends of the arms are finished with lines of round-headed brass studs, which also feature around the back; the turned front legs have brass castors.

Kilims – hand-woven, woollen rugs without a knotted pile – have been made in Turkey for centuries. A crucial part of nomadic life, they lined (and line) the floors and walls of tents as well as houses, and were highly valued as dowry pieces. Not only are they beautiful, but they are famously hardwearing and as a result ideal as a chair covering. (Please note you do not have to give this chair away if your daughter becomes engaged.)
