I was looking for a small chair for our master bedroom for a year now (on and off to be honest). I initially fell in love with the MAD chair by Marcel Wanders for Poliform (see my post here) but, as so often, with the beauty of the little chair came a hefty price tag and I just wasn’t prepared to spend that at the moment. So I looked on ebay where I found a vintage 1950s cocktail […]

Lovely sunny days, warm temperatures and blue skies sprinkled with totally unexpected downpours, gusting winds and chilly temperatures. A […]

I think the time has come to think about replacing our dining chairs. We bought them almost 8 years ago when moving to SW London – a purchase decision almost entirely made by the left side of our brains: The chairs were practical, sensible and reasonably priced. So Palocco from Habitat it was, with white plastic shell seats and chromed steel ski legs. Even if their look didn’t get me excited, I liked the chairs’ minimalistic design and they served us […]
