Egg Chair by Squint
Let’s just be clear on one thing first, before you get your hopes up. This egg chair, though gorgeous, is a madly expensive, (and I mean expensive!), unique work of art. Unless you have a minimum of £3000 (that’s$6000!) to spend on a recovered vintage chair don’t even torment yourself by visiting the web site where you will find:
Vintage Egg chairs to commission from £3000.
along with lots of other gorgeous re-covered vintage goodies that you absolutely can’t afford, but we can dream, right? (£200 for cushion ! ) This is turning into more of a nightmare than a dream..!
Squint – the web site and the shop
Sculptor and painter Lisa Whatmough opened her shop Squint in East London about three years ago.She was a collector of antique textiles which she began to use to re-cover vintage furniture in a very modern take on patchwork. The shop recently moved to bigger premises at 178 Shoreditch High Street, London. Shoreditch is becoming a very trendy area of London
Who do you sell Shabby Chic Furniture to?
I’ve just spent the morning doing the rounds of some gorgeous Shabby Chic blogs and Etsy shops for a blog post next week. (Sneak a preview in our Shabby Chic Friendfeed Room) Some of the work I’ve seen is just as gorgeous and stylish as this chair yet most of it is very modestly priced.
I wonder if you are under-selling yourselves ladies? Rich people love Shabby Chic furniture and accessories too y’know!
