The Chats Chair comes in this beautiful blue-grey velvet.  This piece has been inspired by Marcel Breuer’s (Hungarian born architect and furniture designer) cantilever occasional chair.  The most important element of this design was that there were no conventional back legs.  This model features a cushioning steel tube frame and wooden armrests for interest.  The measurements are 85cm high, 59cm wide and 85cm in depth with the seat height at 42cm – £550 from Graham & Green.

Small Living Room Furniture Ideas Display And Storage Options

This Antiqued Metal Console Table has a distressed mottled vintage finish for an authentic look.  It’s made from metal although it’s actually lightweight.  It’s ideal for giving your living room character and a focal point.  Display your glamourous decorative objects on the surface so you can admire them as you relax and recline back on your chaise or lounge chair.  Because the underneath is free from drawers and cupboards you have the option to slide under old fashioned suitcases or baskets for additional storage.  However, if you can keep the space underneath free it will give your room the illusion of being spacious.  The measurements are 82cm high, 110cm wide and 41cm in depth – £180 from Cox and Cox.
