Birds Lounge Chair


Celebrating the 1800’s Arts & Craft textile artist William Morris’s love of nature, we introduce the stunning Birds Lounge Chair. Featuring English thrushes nestling amongst scrolling leaves and flowers, muted greys are printed upon a neutral light beige cotton background.  Hand crafted in the UK, this high quality bespoke armchair features  attractive Victorian style buttoning and elegantly turned legs available with or without castors.

William Morris famously drew inspiration from nature, often watching the birds in his garden. He looked to countryside and hedgerow plants to populate his patterns and old-fashioned flowers from his medieval styled garden to inform his designs. “It is impossible to imitate nature literally; the utmost realism of the most realistic painter falls a long way short of it.” William Morris, ‘Some Hints on Pattern-Designing’ lecture, 1881

Pictured here in a small size with lightly varnished ash legs and gold castors, since all of our handcrafted chairs are made to order, if you prefer a different  leg or castors, or if you would like contrasting coloured buttons or piping simply call or email us to discuss your preferred specifications.

Please note if you want longer legs on a small or medium chair, please note that we charge an additional £50 (please speak to us if you are unsure about leg heights!)

The large sized frame comes with longer legs already inbuilt. Prices for customisations vary, depending on what your specifications are.  If you wish to have piping on the back and just above the front legs we  charge an additional £60 (see Hepburn, Kilgour, Beau & Marlene lounge chairs).

Since all of our handcrafted seating is made to order,  please allow up to 8 weeks for pieces to be made – please contact for further details.

Please note that we do not offer refunds / returns on any of our handcrafted seating range as these items are all made to order. The onus is on the customer to make sure that the measurements and the fabric will fit and indeed suit your interior space. If you have any queries about dimensions please feel free to email or call us BEFORE you order a chair, we are more than happy to help in any way we can. Being a small family run shop we simply do not have the space to store returned goods that have been returned simply because a customer has misjudged their dimensions or fabric choices.

If you require samples we will always endeavour to send these, so please don’t be scared to ask! In the same way that paint swatches always differ online, so do colours and textures on fabric!
