Nina's Apartment at the AECC / Scottish Home Show 2014

I am incredibly excited to announce that for the first time Nina's Apartment is taking part in the Scottish Home Show at the AECC in Aberdeen. It is a 3-day event taking place from 26-28 September and hopefully many more people will get to know Nina's Apartment and what we do and sell.

Currently gathering stock, reupholstering some statement mid- 20th century armchairs and polishing up a big 1970 sideboard, the stand is sure to look stunning! Go and get some tickets, there will be plenty to enjoy for all.

Rocking chair revamp - patchwork project

I recently picked up a rocking chair - not incredibly 'vintage' (probably less than 30 years old), but a good shape and well built - possibly G Plan. The cushions had seen better days though and when a customer showed an interest in buying the chair I suggested doing it up for her in a patchwork style, using lots of lovely blue and grey fabric scraps I had lying around in the studio. I left the frame in its original blond wood state as I felt it matched the 'Scandinavian' look of the patterned fabrics and style of the chair. This is the result. I'm pretty pleased with it and I am sure it'll look lovely in its new home!
