Our client had this lovely solid chair, having recently moved and redecorated the large office room, this chair was the odd piece out. With a large sleek black desk, Black office chair with duck egg blue accents in the room including  two toned duck egg blue hall tables used as office furniture in the room, the chair with it's strong brown tones needed a revival. 

The chair frame has been hand painted in Graphite  to tie in with our clients desk and office chair, then dark waxed to create a lamp black finish. The leather was then hand painted in Duck Egg Blue using Annie Sloan's small brush, then clear waxed to make it soft and supple, often we get asked what does it feel like when you paint leather? the answer is it feels exactly the same, feels like soft leather.  We detailed further with dark wax over the leather to give it an aged look.

 A beautiful bespoke revival, with the concept created to specifically fit into with style and colours of our clients office.
