This chair was named after the late Magenta Devine, a wonderful TV presenter who left this earth on 5 March 2019.

Magenta Divine was created from a frame I bought ready-stripped. She was covered in a magenta wool fabric over a rubberised hair base, The seat was sprung with serpentine springs (using a ‘fishmouth’ system which I made). The buttons help to form a fluted effect in the inside back of the chair. The chair was named after the uber-cool TV presenter Magenta Devine, and because the fabric was such a wonderful bright magenta colour.

Each year two Liverymen from the Worshipful Company of Upholders come and judge student work at London Metropolitan University. Prizes are awarded for each class. I was very thrilled to be awarded Second Prize in the Advanced Upholstery class for this chair.
