Shackletons scores with a bespoke chair for an avid Bradford City fan!

19th December 2018

We were recently contacted by a gentleman called Tommy, who lives on the Isle of Man. Tommy’s friend Georgie had a significant birthday coming up and previously lived in Bradford and still supports Bradford City Football Club. The city and football club are very dear to Georgie’s heart.

Tommy and his friends decided it would be wonderful to surprise Georgie with a Shackletons chair upholstered in of her beloved Bradford City football colours. Georgie had spoken about Shackletons to her friends and even brought them to our showroom in Batley. Georgie could also recite our famous TV advert word for word.

After speaking with our retail team the next task was to obtain Georgie’s measurements. Tommy and his friends covertly acquired the measurements to which we manufactured a Bakewell comfort chair here at our West Yorkshire factory. The Bakewell high back chair was upholstered in a claret body with a contrasting seat cushion and piping in amber. The final result was a chair that would take pride of place in any Bradford City fan’s home.

Once the chair had been manufactured, Tommy made his way to collect the chair all the way from the Isle of Man to our showroom here in Batley.

The whole Shackletons’ team are delighted that we have brought so much joy and comfort to Georgie. Enjoy the chair!
