Hello 2013

Well hello 2013, welcome! I have started the new year with a bit of  chair drive, trying to get a few back orders finished so that I can start 2013 with a clear work conscience.

These are all bespoke orders which I've finally finished, phew. The chair above is probably my all time favourite shape with the beautiful spoke arms. 

These two oak detail wing chairs are also a fantastic design with their unusual arm rests and curved front legs. They have been covered in a chunky weave which adds to their 1950's charm as well as lending a very comfortable feel.

Aside from chairs, I had a beautiful couple of days in Suffolk for New Years Eve and amazingly New Years Day even dawned bright and sunny, just what I was longing for after the Christmas deluge. 

Our New Years Eve had a nautical theme with the dress code being, "The Last Day's of the Marie Celeste", encouraging sailors, pirates, penguins(!), ghostly mariners and a flag pole to take to the floor. After much merriment the party sojourned to the hot tub and I only wish I had a photo of all fourteen of us squashed in there!

The next morning, continuing on the watery theme and nursing hangovers, we all set off to the reservoir down the road to try our luck in the anual New Years Day home made boat race.

Needless to say our egg boxes never really stood a chance against the finely honed local know how, but it was a lovely way to see the New Year in.

Hopefully next week I will have a few chairs finished that are for general sale, until then, if you have any questions just email on hickeyanddobson@gmail.com. have a good week everyone. x
