Chair envy...

A great occasional chair can really jazz up a space, particularly a home office. They are an easy way to add colour and texture. Whilst these are probably not the most ergonomically sound choices, I love each of them! And when teamed with a fabulous lamp and a scattering of books and accessories - perfect :)






Hubby is restoring a vintage dining chair at the moment. I'm trying to decide on paint colour and fabric choice...I'm so indecisive. Will be sure to show you when it's done though :)

This week's love...

...is the Pink Swan Project by Suite New York - which is a very cool mid century furniture store. They are auctioning off versions of Jacobsen's Swan chair all jazzed up by some leading designers to raise money for breast cancer research. What a clever concept! I'm sure they will raise lots of money for a great cause :) You can read more about it and check out the rest of the chairs here.

Here are a few of my favourites...


Madeline Weinrib


Margherita Missoni


Vicente Wolf


Victoria Hagan


Windsor Smith


Choosing a favourite is tough but I don't think I can go past the rockin' ikat by Madeline :) 

Have a fabulous Friday all and thanks for popping by this week.

Tickled pink

I adore pink. Simple as that. Having said that, I know it's not everyone's favourite shade! However as these photos illustrate, a little bit of pink can go a long way - a lovely accent chair, a cute light fitting, a moroccan pouffe or simply a gorgeous bunch of flowers. It really can be the perfect accent colour especially against a white or neutral backdrop...



































How good are those chairs?!

Have a lovely Tuesday :)
