Ghost Furniture does more than that that is visible on the website. I take on commissions that no one really gets to see - until now that is.
These 6 chairs were commissioned for a fabulous mews house in central London. 3 pairs of chairs, each upholstered in a different colour velvet.
Given a shabby look but in a different way as I used Blackened Bronze so that it catches the light
so looks really opulent when used for an evening meal.
Each chair has a little vintage brass plaque on the back, a different way of displaying a place name at the table.
Sad to see them go really, they brightened up my cottage.
This pair were finished in a truly matte black paint, upholstered in black canvas and highlighted and piped in Regency Gold.
A little vintage ribbon rose has been attached to the back of each seat. Now living in a huge farmhouse in Northumberland.
This sexy 1950s mannequin was covered in a vintage Russian Linen and
we left the Stockman logos exposed at both the bottom and
neck. She came without a base so the legs from a vintage table were used instead.
I am furious with myself for forgetting to photograph this dining suite before I painted it. It was an orange tinted pine which isn't a great look.
I finished the whole suite in a matte ash grey paint and highlighted the carvings, finials and the tabletop edge in Blackened Bronze.
The table top is covered entirely in blackboard paint so the owner can have great fun chalking place names, place mats or anything else she desires on it.
In fact it looks as though it has a slate top when it is blank. Incidentally the chairs are waiting to be covered by the owner. and I hope she does them in black.
Hope you enjoyed this little look into the other side of Ghost Furniture.
