The UK throws away around 1.6 million tonnes of furniture and bulky waste each year, most of which ends up in landfill. Reusing what has already been (well) made makes ever more sense !
These chairs remain a firm vintage favourite; affordable, practical comfortable and customisable! Chairs of this style were a popular choice in most homes in the 1960s and they are now a trendy, modern vintage, quality second hand upcycled choice for the conscious consumer who is looking for something stylish and with a bit of history.
Made from hardwood (usually beech) by Q Quitmann of Bristol (although some have no labels), creating a solid and sturdy structure, the chairs feature a curved backrest for comfort and have been cleaned, lightly sanded and re- oiled.
These chairs were actually acquired from the same home as a pair, but after close up cleaning and reupholstering, there appears to be small differences between the two, not obvious at a first glance. A difference of 1 cm in height, a slightly curvier back rest and different fixings at the back. Please see the photos for full accuracy and whilst they are not an exact matching pair we are selling them as a pair.
Buying second hand certainly doesn’t mean settling for second best with this set of upcycled vintage chairs.
As well as in modern homes, these chairs would be suitable in a coffee shop environment or a cosy restaurant, quality made seating offering comfort and giving a retro stylish vision to any dining space.
The listed price is for the pair of chairs in the photos but if you want more or similar, message us with your requirements as we normally have a few others in stock.
