sally nencini...




the exquisite design and upholstery work of sally nencini....


"Each of Sally's bespoke upholstered pieces is a unique response to the vintage chair and its character; the story of its use and its user. The fabric sourcing and craft-treatment give the chair a new life but also acknowledge its idiosyncratic past life. Sally will work to commission, sourcing furniture around a brief or responding to a family piece in need of reworking with the same research and consultation process. Sally's cushions, bags and toys sample pattern-motifs from vintage nursery toys and fabrics. The knitted pieces can be made to order, or purhased online at her Etsy shop.

Sally, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, studied MA Fashion at the Royal College of Art and has designed for, amongst others, Levi's and M&S. Since bringing up a young family, she has retrained in upholstery. Her long-held interest in handworked craft, surface pattern and vintage"
