This stunning, made to order, vintage theatre seat finished in Emma J Shipley Lost World velvet will bring a touch of Art Deco style and excitement to any home. Ideal as a space saving alternative to a sofa, seating in a hallway or to furnish a home cinema.


We have finished this special chair with a unique hand painted stripe design to the seat base, with matching painted highlights to the inside edges of the seat back.


The curved back and deep sprung seats add comfort to the beautiful 1930’s Art Deco style. These seats were designed to be sat in for long periods. Made to order to be a perfect fit for your home. The price listed for this chair includes fabric costs.


Being vintage, measurements do vary a little from seat to seat, so sizes are approximate:

Height 80cm

Width 62cm

Depth Seat Up 57cm

Depth Seat Down 67cm


These chair looks stunning when paired with gold painted cast iron fittings, but alternative colours can be used. A seat number of your choice can also be painted onto the seat base.


We will also paint or stain the board the cinema seats stand on to work with your room and flooring. All of these customisation options are available at no additional cost.


We'll be in contact to confirm your preferences and estimated delivery timings. Lead times do vary, depending on our current order list, but we will discuss timings with you. Please contact us if you would like an indication of current lead times before ordering.


Before delivering your refurbished cinema seats we will:

- strip, repair and refinish the wooden backs, arms and seat bases to reveal the lovely wood grain

- clean by shot blasting, prime and paint the cast iron legs and seat brackets

- replace the internal upholstery and padding as needed with equivalent natural and fire retardant materials

- finish the seats and backs in a beautiful fire retardant velvet

- fix them to a wooden board, painted or stained to suit


We recommend the chairs are fixed to a board or to your floor to keep them stable. We supply them on a removable wooden board that we paint or stain to fit in with your flooring and the velvet, but many of our




Velvet: This luxurious velvet by Emma Shipley has a very short pile but is super soft feel, it truly is gorgeous. It is durable too though with a very high rub rating, which means it should stay looking gorgeous for many years to come. We love to use soft velvets on our cinema seats as we feel it suits their style and reflects their past.


Wood: The wooden top rail, shaped arm rests, curved seat backs and seat bases are all stripped back and refinished with Osmo Polyx oil. There will be marks in the wood due to their age, but this adds to their unique character.


Metal: Cast iron legs and fittings have been cleaned and repainted, but due to their age there will be dents and marks, or character as we like to call it.


Fillings: The chairs have deep sprung seats and we replace all the fillings with traditional and natural materials.


This chair is made to order. Once it is ready, you are welcome to collect from our studio in Surrey or we can arrange delivery with our trusted furniture courier for £90 to mainland UK.
