Heather trained as a furniture upholsterer at The Traditional Upholstery Workshop, in Ceredigion, Wales, 14 years ago, and for the last 8 years has been running her own furniture upholstery business in Leeds, and creating her own furniture designs.

Eclectic Chair is based at the newly opened Blackbird Vintage shop in North Leeds, from where Heather sells her own pieces, and carries out upholstery for her clients. Heather visits Manchester on a weekly basis and therefore is able to take on projects in both areas. She also makes cushions from an eclectic variety of vintage and new fabrics such as African wax fabric, Welsh tapestry blankets, needlepoint tapestries and vintage Heals designers.
