A vintage Retro 1950s Gplan E.Gomme
  • A vintage Retro 1950s Gplan E.Gomme

  • We have managed to get hold of a classic vintage armchair that you don’t see very often. Gplan was the pioneering range of furniture, produced in High Wycombe England. In 1953 Donald Gomme, the designer at Gplan, decided to produce a range of modern furniture which could be bought piece by piece according to budget.
    We’re going for a denim / indigo style Upholstery to keep it retro, unique and hard wearing. Watch this space to see it’s transformation.

Retro Chair SOS!
  • Retro Chair SOS!

  • Take a look at this poor retro chair that we rescued from a market today! As we speak it is being lovingly restored, we have replaced the broken arms, the legs and armrests have been stripped by hand, all the inner padding replaced for fire-proofed materials and soon to be covered in Osbourne & Little fabric. Very retro chair chic.

  • This is one of two classic chairs which are currently being lovingly restored in our workshop. We have used wire wool to take off the varnish by hand; because of the delicate nature of the piece, it’s important to do this rather than dipping to save the joints and keep the piece in excellent condition. A laborious, delicate job to create a beautifully elegant piece, lightly oiled and with a rustic denim fabric seat. Watch out for them in our collection.
