Checker-Board Bobbin Leg Stool

A particularly special Bobbin Leg Stool, covered in antique Swedish sun faded red and grey checker-board wool fabric (which would have been woven on a narrow width loom) the panels hand stitched together with linen thread, hand dyed to match. The base is covered in tomato red linen, finished with Natural Maroc goatskin leather corners in ‘Slate’ from  Howe @ 36 Bourne Street.

The cushion is a proper stuffed and stitched horsehair squab, rarely found these days due to the time and skill required to make one, but this will in turn last a lifetime (or two), fixed all the way through with natural twine and float buttons.⠀

AVAILABLE NOW with crisply turned bobbin legs in oak, at the retail price of £6,000 inc vat, inc fabric.
