London-based 'The Shop at Bluebird' worked with artist and designer Yinka Ilori to create these vibrantly colorful African-themed chairs. The designer is well-known for his use of upcycled materials to create unique furniture pieces, which is why this collection also uses upcycled materials.

The collection titled 'If Chairs Could Talk' uses colorful African-themed fabrics to bring a playful twist and expressive appeal to each seat. The designer used inspiration from his childhood to create this collection. By combining parts of his Nigerian heritage with modern contemporary design aspects, it brings an authentication to each chair within the collection.

The cohesion came with ease by continuously fusing the past with the current elements. If Chairs Could Talk will be on display on November 27th for the annual London Design Festival.
