Who would believe that this very grand chair would have originally have been made for a servant? Popular in medieval England and later in France, the porter's chair was designed for a man servant who would be positioned by the door to screen arriving visitors. A tall - or hooded - back would keep the draughts at bay for the many hours he'd be seated there. 

Our black velvet chair is a thing of beauty. Covered all over in near perfect velvet upholstery with an elegant button back there are few signs of wear and tear to this fabulous thing, except a little scuffing to the wooden arm rests and feet. 

Measuring 78cm deep by 90cm wide and 170cm tall, this is a heavy piece of furniture that requires two people to lift it and needs to be transported by van. 

We hoover and maintain our soft furnishings between each hire, so you should expect them to be clean and functional, not to mention aesthetically beautiful and superbly comfy. We are happy for our sofas and chairs to go outside, but only in fine weather, please.
