Heather trained as a furniture upholsterer at The Traditional Upholstery Workshop, in Ceredigion, Wales, 16 years ago, and for the last 10 years has been running her own furniture upholstery business. She has now ceased upholstering for the general public in order to concentrate on creating her own furniture designs.
Eclectic Chair is based in Chorlton, Manchester. From her studio in a vintage garage just off of the famous Beech Road, Heather reupholsters furniture transforming it from once old and dowdy to something fresh, new, colourful and different, rarely conservative, often quirky. She also makes cushions from an eclectic variety of vintage and new fabrics such as African wax fabric, Welsh tapestry blankets, needlepoint tapestries and vintage Heals designers.
