Parker Loves Stripes!

I was lucky enough to pick up six of these beautiful parker chairs off ebay recently.
After much debate, I finally decided on a look for them! I think the result is modern, fresh and still respects the beautiful workmanship that comes from Parker Furniture.




I didn't consider painting these, I'm liking the look of natural timber at the moment on upholstered pieces so the fabric can take centre stage. Plus the fact they're Parker, I couldn't paint them!





For those who don't know, Parker is an iconic furniture company that's been popular here since the 60's.





These have such a nice shape and are so comfy to sit in!! Two down, four to go. Gotta love removing staples!!

Wish me luck!      *Update - I've finished all six...yay!! You can see them here
