Description from The New Craftsmen

The Pembroke Chair designed by Sarah Kay, & hand-painted by historic paint & lacquer specialist Pedro da Costa Felgueiras in ‘Invisible Green’ – a colour commonly used on exterior railings during Georgian times in an attempt to blend them with their surrounds.

The underside of the chair reveals Pedro’s signature stamp, as well as the ingredients used to create the colour, which is a combination of Oxford Yellow, mined from the ground, & Lamp Black, sourced through holding a glass above a burning lamp and collecting the resulting soot.

The Pembroke chair itself was originally designed by Sarah Kay as part of Chris Eckersley’s second bodging project in 2012. The shape of the chair is inspired by the Welsh tradition of  ‘stick’ chairs, sometimes also called Welsh Windsor chairs because the legs, back and arm supports are socketed into a solid seat.”

  • Material: ash wood, painted in invisible green
