This chair was picked up in a flea market in France.

It had a rotten bit at the bottom of one leg which I had to re-carve. The entire frame was re-glued and the whole thing was re-upholstered using Angie Lewin’s Dandelion Two from St Jude’s Fabrics.

The dandelions look a bit like lollipops, which is where the name came from. (And I love the famous ska record of the same name by Millie Small.)
