About

Hi, my name is Emily Beaumont.  I learnt the wonderful craft of upholstery at The Cass part of London Metropolitan University under the watchful eye and huge skill of a fourth generation upholsterer.  After 6 years of part-time study I was awarded a distinction for my Diploma from the AMUSF , so all the hard work paid off!  Whilst there I also discovered the much forgotten art of hand-tailored lampshades through the amazing skill of Angela Constantinou .  I now work out of Brighton & Hove , a city which is a constant source of inspiration to me.

It has been a huge learning curve but one I feel very lucky to have been able to do.  It is immensely satisfying to by able to work creatively with my hands using traditional tools, materials and methods.  We live in a fast paced world and it is really nice to see what amazing things can be achieved with a bit of time. 

My chairs can be described as 'traditionally modern' reinventing beautifully made vintage frames into a chair that fits in today's modern world.  If you have a chair that could just do with a bit of love and attention please let me know, I'd be very happy to help bring it back to life for at least another decade.
