Design classics – yes please!

An interiors magazine did a photo shoot for a feature about my flat this week. I had to make a list of where I have sourced my furniture from and I realised that there are only about five pieces that I have bought from new. Also, the things I have bought second-hand are all very cheap. Surely, this means I can buy some new furniture with no guilt…

Ercol loveseat

I have wanted this Ercol loveseat for sooooo long. Wouldn’t it be perfect in a hallway? Or in a kitchen? Heal’s is currently selling new editions but you can also get them from eBay a lot cheaper.

Vintage enamel topped kitchen table

I love anything that is enamelled, especially enamel topped tables. Could be used in the kitchen or even as a dressing table in a bedroom. Buy at bargain prices on eBay.

Vintage chapel chairs

These chapel chairs (called this as they originally held bibles and prayer books in churches) make such sweet dining chairs. Want! Again, buy cheaply on eBay.

Anthropologie tufted filigree rug

A pretty rug I have my eye on for our bedroom – add to floorboards with an iron bedstead and vintage quilt. This rug is being sold in Anthropologie.

G-Plan Danish retro teak coffee table

I’ve been thinking about a new coffee table and I’ve always liked this G-Plan one. Again, buy on eBay for a good price.

Vintage stripy deck chair

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pair of proper vintage stripy deck chairs? Yes, please.

1940's enamel bread bin

Labour and Wait is one of my favourite shops and I like this 1940’s steel bread bin very much. You can also get an original from the brilliant A Rum Fellow.

Japanese enamel tea pot

This is also from Labour and Wait. Oh yes.

It is my birthday soon so you never know x
