The Plantation Chair by Georgina Brett Chinnery is an “antique Georgian frame covered with natural hand tooled leather featuring a tree design, finished with close nailed nickel studs and a hand stitched cushion (not shown in the picture)”.
The chair is part of Georgina’s new collection “Flora and Fauna” and is on show in the Project Space at Collect, The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects, 6-9 May at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
Having seen the skull chair by Pool being received by you so well, I was reminded of this other skull themed chair I came across a few years back and kept a photo of saved on my computer. Let me introduce you to the Skullduggery chair by Georgina Brett Chinnery who designs for her own “interior couture” firm Bombarock in the UK.
Initially working in fabrics using skull prints and experimenting with textural applications, Georgina exhibited her ‘Skullduggery’ chair at the 2006 London Design Festival. At London Design Festival 2008 Georgina showed her signature style of upholstery using skulls and tattoo roses. The new collection of decorative leather furniture, showing a more artisan approach to her work will be exhibited in May 2011 at Collect.
