Condesa chair by Sentou Edition

Forget the set of drawers, it's the chair we're talking about here, specifically the Condesa chair by Sentou Edition. It's a take on the 'basket' chair common in the 1960s. Only this one has a structure in black powder coated solid steel with epoxy resin, while the seat is in plastic rope with UV protection. Which means it's good for in, out or in your conservatory. Three colour options, all selling for £305.

Via Retro to Go.

Pantone Colour Chairs

I love these Pantone folding chairs from The Holding Company. Retro vibe and superbly space saving. They cost £54 and if you need some folding chairs, these are surely up there on the must have list.

Wooden Operator Chair

Home office furniture can often focus on practicality over style, but for those who want a more welcoming feel, this chair takes all the functionality of ordinary office seating, and gives it a charming twist. A solid beech revolving seat and supports bring classic rustic elegance to bear, while the gas-lift mechanism and the five sturdy wheels provide all the utility needed in a modern office. £249 from the Cotswold Company.

Vintage High Chair

If you want this, you need to get a wiggle on. It's on eBay with just a couple of hours left. Bidding is currently at £6.01. It's a highchair which goes in to a seat and table. I love it. 
And on the high chair note, if you're looking for some original and funky cushions for highchairs, you need to get in touch with Brighton designer, Sophie4Sophie.  She's just created some custom ones for my Tripp Trapp. They're brilliant. I will feature them here soon.

I've been a fan of these statement bodysuits and tee's by web designer Nathalie of Mimimouse ever since I featured them on Bambino Goodies last year.

Ligne Roset Anneau Chair

Anneau is a chair designed by Pierre Paulin from the 2010 Ligne Rosetcollection. It combines a simple ring base and seat. Anneau is evocative of Paulin’s “fauteuil 780,” also known as “Concorde.” One of his last creations, Anneau redefines the concept of the traditional lounge chair. The webbed suspension on the seat and back lie above a sculptural and sensual cast aluminum base, linked only by a doubled steel ring, resulting in a much lighter, almost ethereal design. It was in homage to this legendary designer, that Ligne Roset re-christened this chair “Anneau,” which means “ring” in French. Cute eh.

The Eero Aarnio Ball Chair

This little lady shows us just how cool the EeroAarnio Ball Chair is. She's rocking that chair at the Sit Down exhibition at the V&A. It's from the 60's and already a modern contemporary classic. Available from DesignShop UK from £6500 but you can get cheaper reproductions, such as the £350 copy from Furnisho.
