Bentley Designs Bespoke Barber Chairs
The automaker partnered with the Pankhurst barbershop in London to create custom leather seats for their patrons.
Bentley partnered with Pankhurst to create bespoke leather barbers’ chairs for the luxury barbershop in London. This collaboration marks these two iconic British companies’ mutual desire for quality, style and comfort.
Pankhurst’s new home off Carnaby Street is described as “a haven of masculinity.” Gentlemen who pay a visit can sit back in a bespoke chair for their shave or trim.
Six chairs were hand-upholstered by Bentley’s craftsmen. Luxury Insider notes that five feature the Bentley badge on the headrest, while the sixth has the Pankhurst logo.
For the armrests, new wood was grafted into the structure to replace the ashtrays. The suspension in the chairs was reworked and new headrest foams were added to improve comfort.
