Kingsland_chair is the last arrival by Urban Upholstery.
Presented the 19th of September 2009 at Hoxton Hall Theatre,
during the Open House weekend.
Kingsland is the third furniture designed to incorporate African prints sourced in the local area of Dalston. The frame in polyurethane has been restored to its original egg shape. Matching three different fabrics and texture the chair has been covered with blue sateen leather, 90% green wool fabric and African cotton batik. The main body has been upholstered with foam and Dacron, the seat cushion in rubber foam and Dacron and the back cushion with wool sheet.
