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.
home: nice price [ ceiling light ]
The styling, the curves, the nod to mid century – the incredible Dexter Copper Sputnik Ceiling Pendant £143.20 (reduced in the sale from £179.00) from Marks & Spencer is a must buy. It’s a perfect designer-look retro light fitting to make a statement in any room.
We found this reduced beauty, courtesy of the great AMotherEdits blog. Mostly about gorgeous fashion but follow her on Instagram to see the amazing renovations she’s been doing to her London home.
home: favourite thing [ G Plan sofa ]

The Sixty Five range also comes in a 2 seater and armchair.

home: favourite thing [ memo rack ]
Perfect design, simple storage – we love this wire memo rack from PeaStyle. It’s stylish, minimal look, clean; and comes with handy storage boxes and bulldog clips to use how you wish; to store, display, hang – notes, cards, photos, tickets and other bits and bobs for daily life.
DIMENSIONS: 66 x 45 x 13 cm
home: trend [ bold clashing ]
This year if you want to be bold then embrace the trend of clashing colours, patterns, textiles… it’s all about being brave with mixing sizes of pattern, tones of colour and creating a powerful, eclectic feel.
There is a certain compatibility but it feels very ‘carefully’ thrown together. Keep colours rich and break up the pattern with plain bold and bright pieces of furniture, but mix geometric patterned curtains with floral wall paper or mix a striped throw over a intricate print sofa.

home: featured [ Minus Tio ]
A little bit of Scandinavian perfection in from lovely Swedish brand Minus Tio. Having featured their coat rack last week we felt this store needed to be shouted about.
Their legacy and basis for all their designs are summed up with a perfect collation of words… ‘Sweden in the 80’s – Dark winters, cross county skiing, Sigurd Lewerentz, Alvar Aalto. Pine, rocky islands and concrete, Saab and Nintendo. This is often where we start our projects.’
With a talented team of designers they have exquisite design, using sustainable materials and their range includes chairs, tables and accessories; furniture for both the home or commercial use.
Minus tio is all about the love of furniture. Our collection is unique, contemporary and locally produced. We design, we manufacture and we sell.
