We are a little in love with this new collection available at TwentyTwentyOne and picked this serving tray as our favourite piece. The collection pays homage to the brilliance of chair design in the last century, including designers like Eames and Wegner. The homeware pieces designed by Ella Dora collate the iconic designs from photographic imagery.

They say;

Created in collaboration with twentytwentyone, Ella Doran’s new collection sees the designer’s trademark eye for colour and pattern applied to iconic chair designs of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The new twentytwentyone collection of homewares are decorated with a design created from images of chairs from twentytwentyone’s archive, captured by photographer Mark Whitfield and portraying a unique and dynamic selection of designs dating from the 1930s to the present day.

Remarkable for their formal and technological variety, the chairs featured offer a snapshot of the ingenuity and creativity that has been applied to the design of this essential piece of domestic furniture.

The chairs featured include designs by Alvar AaltoRobin DayCharles and Ray EamesArne JacobsenJasper MorrisonGeorge NelsonVerner Panton and Hans Wegner – amongst others.

A must for design enthusiasts as well as those who appreciate colour and pattern, the twentytwentyone collection includes mugs, coasters and placemats alongside trays.

The twentytwentyone collection tray is available in round (with black background) or rectangular (with white background) designs.

Ella Doran trays are made out of single sheets of the finest Scandinavian birch wood, sourced for its fine grain and exceptional width. They have no joins and are coated with hard-wearing melamine, making them durable and dishwasher safe, as well as pleasant to look at and handle.

A haven of perfect vintage, midcentury and Scandinavian design under one roof. The range of superb condition vintage pieces at PIB is extensive and includes chairs, tables, lighting, storage, and more. 

They say: 

Style, Quality, and Everlasting: The PIB Concept

PIB was founded because we couldn’t find furniture which combined style & quality online. The products were either of bad quality, badly presented or in the middle of long lists with no coherence of styles.




Currently there are great ‘back to school’ special discounts on various pieces running until 25th September.
