Claire Platten studied Fine Art at University, had a successful career in marketing and graphic design before re-training as an upholsterer. Whilst working on furniture commissions, Claire also works on her own collections. Working with modern and traditional techniques, Claire puts her experience with design, colour and craft to produce unique pieces of furniture.
I trained at the London College of Furniture,
known now as The Cass at London Met University.
This is where I learnt the craft of tradional and modern upholstery.
I now spend my days doing something I love, which is good for the chairs and good for my clients. Every chair is different and deserves time and attention.
There is no need to buy new furniture
when there is a such a wonderful variety
of vintage/antique chairs out in the
The craftmanship cannot be equalled and you gain not only a unique piece of furniture but a little piece of history aswell.
