1950s cocktail chair dressed in designers guild

I was looking for a small chair for our master bedroom for a year now (on and off to be honest). I initially fell in love with the MAD chair by Marcel Wanders for Poliform (see my post here) but, as so often, with the beauty of the little chair came a hefty price tag and I just wasn’t prepared to spend that at the moment. So I looked on ebay where I found a vintage 1950s cocktail chair upholstered with the original but unfortunately rather hideous green fabric. I bought it followed by a trip to our local upholsterer with some new and gorgeous designers guild fabric over my arm. And this is the result: our “new” 1950s cocktail chair which I absolutely love. Marcel has to wait…
