home: favourite thing [ ply chair ]
We have a lot of love for chairs and this armchair from West Elm is certainly one to shout about. The design and colour is ticking all the boxes for Midcentury lovers. It has a modern twist with its curved legs rather than a familiar swivel base.
The plywood frame finished in dark walnut and a soft leather seat makes this the perfect lounge chair to get cosy in with a book.

A colourful look is great with a retro twist. Stick with hues that are similar shades of a few bright colours, with turquoise, burnt orange and red for a midcentury twist. Keep sofas, armchairs or other main furniture pieces in statement plain bright colours and opt for patterns in home accessories. Look for quirky additions like the John Lewis ‘On Air‘ light box and mix fun patterns like geometric and block printing in curtains, throws and cushions.

They say ;
Really Well Made offers the very finest design-led contemporary furniture and accessories with a Scandinavian influence. We established in 2012 because we felt there were many retailers in the UK representing poorly conceived design products. We envisaged a collection of items that simply work well and transcend passing fashions. With that in mind we constantly search for design products which express a strong, timeless & minimalist aesthetic that will stand the test of time.

home: favourite thing [ chair ]
This beautiful, design-classic brass wire chair £325 from Rose & Grey is incredible.
An amazing investment as a set round a dining table or use a single as a office chair to make a study extra stylish.
We’d love it against an interior using dark navy or green walls with marble surfaces and some dashes of blush pink in accessories. It would also work well with an industrial trend inspired interior.
Can be used with a sheep skin cushion (sold separately) as shown or other seating pad.
