Greaves & Thomas Style Armchair


Happy New Year to you all!

Kicking off 2014, I repaired, refurbished and recovered this Greaves and Thomas style armchair for a family in Islington, London. The Fabric is a beautiful design collaboration between  Bute Fabrics & Timorous Beasties in Scotland, called “Ramshead”. I finished it with “Eternal Sunshine” velvet buttons from Elitis .
(Hopefully the youngster whose room this will reside in will be kinder to this than before!)

  • Hi Ray
    I wonder if you might give me some free advice. I am reupholstering a Greaves and Thomas chair like the one on your site. How did you do the webbing as the webbing on the one I have is definately not the original. I have done a search on line and it seems that Fagas webbing is what was used originally. Am I right, perhaps you could tell me how you re webbed your chair?
    Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.
    Best wishes
