BBC One’s Money for Nothing: Tulip chairs
Here’s the big reveal of Simion's latest transformation for BBC One's Money For Nothing: this pair of stunning Tulip chairs.
Saved from landfill by the brilliant Jay Blades and brought to the Reloved Works studio for their transformation, these chairs were stripped back to the bare bones, then lovingly restored and upholstered.
Simion was keen to use a sustainable fabric for the upholstery of these chairs, and was able to source this fantastic fabric. Produced by Panaz and made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, this restoration makes for the perfect upcycling story. The fantastic statement print is by Patternistas.
The Tulip chair was designed by Eero Saarinen in the 50s for the Knoll company of New York. It was first designed as a chair to match the complementary dining table, but also looks great as a matching pair. The space age design of the chair has the smooth lines of modernism and was experimental with materials for its time. It is considered a classic of industrial design.
Simion has missed filming during lockdown, so with some changes made, it was great to be able to welcome the Money For Nothing team back to the studio safely this week for some socially distanced filming for the next series of the show.
These chairs are now available to purchase. What better way to brighten up a corner of your home in style?
