Floor cushions from Taschide: “SEEIGEL is inspired by sea urchins. The pillows come in four sizes and various colors. The cover is made of wool and throughout all the different knitting patterns there are no limits in variations.”
The Safari chair
Carl Hansen has re-made this modern classic in a variety of colours and fabrics and can be found on skandium.com:
Being one of the world’s first ‘build-it-yourself’ pieces of furniture this easy chair is all about functionality. It can easily be assembled and disassembled without tools, making it ideal for being on the move. The Safari chair´s obvious companion is the matching Safari stool made after the same simple `knock down` principle. The Safari chair is available in oil-treated light or smoked ash. The seat and backrest are available in four colors of canvas or ox hide. Designed by Kaare Klint in 1933.
by Claire Anne O’brien, a talented artist based in Hackney Wick. Here’s what she says about these stools:
Patterns are based on familiar elements such as Aran jumpers, fishing knots and willow baskets, re-imagined as a contemporary language of craft. Applied to simple furniture forms such as a bench, an ottoman and a chair, fabrics explore scale and construction using the unique properties of knit.
by Freja Sewell, for when you want to escape it all!
By creating an enclosed space HUSH provides a personal retreat, a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library. HUSH provides a quiet space in an age of exponential population growth, where privacy and peaceful respite is an increasingly precious commodity. From www.freyjasewell.co.uk
Have you ever gotten stuck in a crowded room and had to uncomfortably share half of your seat with someone else?

Her design, dubbed Schair, is made of reclaimed wood turns from a chair into a loveseat and is the perfect solution for one person or two!
