Melanie Porter unique knitted chairs

Monday, June 20th, 2011

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.
