“Botanist” Vintage Scottish Navy Blue Chair

Make a unique style statement in your home with this beautiful curved-back solid wooden Scottish chair and footstool set. Perfect for introducing vintage character, with a contemporary twist, to a hallway, living space or bedroom. Whatever your décor, vintage wood and luxury velvet adds effortless natural warmth and charm, as well as somewhere stylish to put your feet up, or throw your clothes off, at the end of a long day!

This lovely chair is an original from Glasgow furniture dealers B & E Strump (we couldn’t resist doing our research and discovered that they didn’t pay their taxes back in 1925, oh dear!).


It has been refurbished in an elegant dark blue professional quality mineral with protective varnish. The newly reupholstered seat features stunning luxury “Island Botanist” velvet fabric from Edinburgh-based Designer, Mairi Helena. Highlights to the centre panel of the chair and feet have been added with gold coloured metallic foil for that extra special finish.


As a vintage item, it naturally shows small signs of aging, which only add to charm and authenticity. This piece is solid and structurally sound, and ready for a new home!


If you require a pair of chairs, we also have another identical one of these that is available to be refinished to match or with any complementing design to suit your needs.
