Theresa May puts her stamp on 10 Downing Street:PM and world leaders sit pretty on "George's Chair" designed by RCA graduate

PM supports British design with new set of chairs for Downing Street.

Prime Minister Theresa May is turning 10 Downing Street into a designer showcase.

Applauded for her sharp dress sense, May clearly has an eye for how to impress with a finely turned chair leg, too. Meeting rooms at the PM’s place have been given a makeover with a new chair introduced.

British design: a set of eight chairs have been created specifically for Downing Street in walnut with an upholstered purple seat

Designed by Royal College of Art graduate Katie Walker in collaboration with Sitting Firm Chairmakers, they were originally made in ash with a solid wood seat. Now a set of eight have been created specifically for Downing Street in walnut with an upholstered purple seat.

It is good to know that visiting world leaders will be supported by British craft. If you fancy stealing the style, George’s Chair can be made to order at Katie Walker Furniture.
