UK designer, Melanie Porter, specialises in creating unique hand knitted, contemporary chairs.
The chairs are all sourced from auctions and markets around the country, and are stripped back, restored and re-upholstered before being covered with a series of hand knitted panels. The end result is a one-of-a-kind chair and unusual piece of art.
What makes the chairs even more individual, is that they’re all given names.
This is Olivia, a green hand knitted, modern egg-style chair.
This is Jack - a restored tub chair that it’s been given a lively look with a hand stitched check knit finish.
You can see more examples of Melanie’s work on her website, but she also has a store on Not On The High Street with knitted chairs for sale, plus other lovely knitted items. The Edward chair is available to buy from there, plus Percy Union Jack knitted cushions in various colours, a knitted table and an unusual knitted clock.
