Cinema Seats From Another Era

Cinema seats from the 19th century

Seeing what other people can do with things that are just going to be thrown away always fascinates me. These pair of cinema seats from around the turn of the 19th century are a great example.

For the last hundred years or so they’ve been in  chapel, presumably somewhere in rural England until they caught the attention of Yorkshire based Little Mill House. Leaving the iron framework and wooden seatbacks in their time worn state, they’ve reupholstered them using 1960s French grain sacks.

The end result is something that would look amazing in a entrance hall.
