Final Major Project

For my final major project, I am designing fabric to be upholstered onto refurbished dining chairs. I will be sourcing 4 chairs from boot sales, second hand shops etc. I am researching into the trend of upcycling and will be refurbishing the chairs myself (with the help of an actual upholsterer.)

For the designs of my fabric, I am using the seaside towns around where I live in East Sussex as inspiration. I want to incorporate the different aspects of a seaside holiday in each of the chairs I am creating; arcades, beach huts, deck chairs, sweets and gifts and amusements.
