Last year, when moving into our brand new studio space in the Newmarket Mill – we came across six fabulous Gunlocke chairs that the workers were using outside for breaks.  They were old and grungy, but great lines.  We asked if we could have them to re-furbish and were given the go ahead when the workers were done using them.   We couldn’t let them go to the dump!!

We stripped these lovelies down to the frame and cleaned them up and oiled them – boy, were they thirsty!  They needed a little bit of snazz added to them, so we found some funky fabric and gave them a new attitude….

The end result was so splendiferous that the developer/owner bought them back for the mill conference room!  How great to give them new life and keep them in the mill where they belong….
