1945 Snelling chair made in St Peters in Sydney out of teak and parachute straps after the war. An Australian mid century chair in original unrestored condition. Beige coloured parachute straps are woven in a chequered pattern and riveted to a teak frame. One of these iconic chairs is on display at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. This Snelling chair is still useable 70 years after manufacture.
Rustic Fremantle limestone style house has wrought iron windows along the entire north wall of the house. All roof beams are exposed and has rustic Spanish terracotta tiles throughout. I bought the Thonet No. 18 chairs from an Italian restaurant which closed down. The table is made from pine and jarrah and is nearly 100 years old - it was used in workers' quarters on a farm in York, a quiet rural town in Western Australia.
