The London Chair Collective


Upholstery by Charlotte Bland


Charlotte BlandScratch the surface of upholstery and a lifelong obsession with chairs is inevitable.

I gained my City and Guilds qualification in upholstery at the Cass at London Metropolitan University formerly the London College of Furniture and these days it makes me very happy to source and restore battered items, with traditional methods or modern techniques, and turn them into chairs that will be loved and used by clients for years to come.

I am also a photographer and specialise in capturing everyday life, looking for similar details in my photographs as I do in chairs, finding the unusual in the ordinary and preserving it: charlottebland.co.uk.
