Reading The Riots Armchair

I read a government report on the reasons for the riots and looting that took place over five summer nights in 2011.

It struck me that it had been largely an episode of group madness, involving many people who would not have been inclined to break the law under normal circumstances.

The testimony of these people made interesting reading.

I used their words as a fabric design.

There are three pieces in this collection; a desk chair, a bedroom chair and this armchair.

 

All my furniture is unique – I never repeat a design.
