What do you think to this beautiful example of a 1940s Utility chair. We've named her Betty Blitz and she could be yours!

Utility furniture was made in the UK during and just after World War II until 1952, as part of a government scheme designed to cope with the shortage of raw materials and rationing of their use. Lack of timber suitable for furniture making, combined with bombing and the establishment of lots of new households, led to a severe shortage of furniture. You can read more about chairs from this period over on our blog.

The gorgeous bentwood arms on this model are so current and this chair is available now in your choice of fabric - the possibilities are endless so do get in touch to chat about your ideas!
