Occasional and Unusual chairs

Some chairs just defy classification and at Needle Rock we’ve seen many examples of the unusual. In the late 1950’s, Jacobsen designed the egg-chair, and although the originals are highly sought after, there’s plenty of egg-style lookalikes for more affordable budgets. Will you be lucky enough to pick up a Jacobsen-style chair to inject modernist cool into your living room and channel vibes with a retro swivel egg armchair? At Needle Rock, we’ve been lucky enough to acquire two of these, so if this is for you, give us a shout!

Another chair manufacturer from mid 20th Century that’s come right back on trend is Ercol. With trademark spindles, and often with fastening seat pads, they are iconic. Recently, Ali refurbished a light elm chair with an antique Welsh carthen (blanket), and the result was stunning.

There are too many chair styles to mention them all, but the ‘kissing chair’ is one Ali’s long-time favourites. In this form, two matching chairs can either stand alone, or be fitted together into various forms. What an inventive design, and we are yet to find another one like it!


January 2019

Happy 2019 to you all, the time of year when we're making plans for the year ahead. Here at Needle Rock, I'm launching a new arm to the business with some highly desirable and unique creative upholstery pieces available for you to buy. Check out the one-off pieces on the For Sale page. With access to some of the world's most desirable designer fabrics, I am reworking both vintage and antique seating options into pieces of beauty. If you are looking for something different then give me a call at Needle Rock, I can design something just for you. I have lots of stock available ready for the magic to begin, and if you're after something we don't have - we can source it for you from our network of dealers across the UK. I'm just absolutely loving it! I could do with another me really - but the days are already getting longer, and with more daylength there's a natural rhythm of increased productivity! With the brand new website launched last year, coupled with social media campaigns - yes you are finally going to see me on Instagram, Pintrest as well as Facebook, I am hoping it will be the most enjoyable year yet!
