- This chair is one from a set of six dining chairs bought for a house called 'Oakbeams' in Southgate, north London. The house's owner, Robert Cole, a theatre designer, had it re-furnished in a modern style in the1930s by the well-known furniture designer and manufacturer Gordon Russell. The chairs are from the 'Welbeck' range and retain their original upholstery, a fabric called 'Eclipse' which was designed in 1935 by Marion Pepler. They were chosen to go with a table, which is also available to see on this website (18/1978-2) and together would have been considered the height of furnishing fashion at the time. A standard lamp bought for 'Oakbeams' can also be seen on this website (18/1878-6).
