If you’re looking for a chair with personality, UK designer Kelly Swallow knows how to do upholstery that packs a punch.  Her patchwork chairs are individually sourced vintage pieces which she revives with a mix of vintage and designer fabrics.  Vibrant textiles include art deco, Hungarian mangle cloths, French grain sacks, German flour sacks and a colourful collection of rugby shirts.  As well as her readymade pieces she also takes commissions.
