The Oyster is perfectly proportioned with her flared shell shaped curved frame, sleek walnut stained legs, gold slipper cups and an extra deep-seated round cushion. Trust us when we say that this stunner is a complete head turner!

One of the best things about the Oyster is her size. She’s big, she’s beautiful and she’s bold. This is a bespoke item that you can customise with a Designers Guild Cassia velvet of your choice.

The Oyster featured is upholstered in a luxury DG Cassia velvet called Aloha. She is also available in a range of other velvets.

She is hand made here is England using exceptional craftsmanship and skill. The back of the chair has minimal seams, the arms slope at the perfect angle and the fluted back gives this cocktail chair the attention to detail it deserves. An amazing example of our modern take on classic glamour making this a piece of heirloom furniture that will never date.
