Thanks very much. The stools arrived safely and we're very happy with them. They'll be covered in pink fabric and installed into Harrods as part of their Disney display at the end of the month.

Mr P Kelly, Cirencester, Gloucs.

The possibility of being able to choose a chair and have it finished and upholstered in whatever one chooses is a concept that I had not come across before.

We are delighted with our chairs and thank you for introducing us to this clever concept. We will be in touch to order some bedroom chairs in the near future.

What an amazing Christmas present! A unique chair upholstered in my own clan tartan. This design held so many memories and I will treasure it all my life.
