The governing board of a Prep School wanted a very special gift to celebrate their retiring headmaster’s service to the school. In conversation with the headmaster’s wife it became apparent a reading chair for his study would be well received, ‘Somewhere to put his feet up!’

Using the school blazer and diary as inspiration, the result is a wonderful mix of high quality English craftsmanship and innovative digital fabric printing which makes a piece that reduced the Headmaster and his wife almost to tears and got the whole school talking.

Sarah’s design highlight – Adding scribbles to the diary fabric design to add that little childish touch!
