26th July 2017 Are you sitting comfortably?

A three piece sofa, matched with its identical chair counterpart, is perhaps the same to interiors, as a twin set and pearls is to fashion. Bluntly, it’s boringly beige. A green light is shining, encouraging the experimental. So question your style choice, pull your chair centre stage and prepare for a makeover.

Is the chair a design power piece?

There is no question to answer, it has been for decades. Consider the Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck. Ironically there is no missing this design classic, even when the name suggests otherwise.

From the comfort of a classic chesterfield club chair, to the grandeur of a French fauteuil, yesteryears style icons are still going strong. Yet whilst shabby chic is coveted, bare threaded upholstery needs love. And don’t fret, memories will always sit there, no matter how you plan your restyle.

Do you know the difference between a knoll lounge chair and cantilever chair?

It always pays to know a man who does… and Style The Home do!  Onske retail a range of design classics from world renowned designers including Marcel Breuer and Mies Van Der Rohe, not that we like to name drop.

If snobbery is given room, some design enthusiasts might suggest that only those serious about style will own such iconic design pieces, but what’s individual about that. Onske provide the solutions to the perceived problem with their playful RAR chair. Not satisfied with the fibre glass shell, the interior has been playfully updated with a patchwork upholstery, a classic twist.

Going Loco

The Acapulco chair from Oli and Grace is only for those with a brave approach to styling. The lack of upholstery allows the rope structure to dominate the style. Be brave, for a yesteryear Hollywood Regency look... pair with chesterfields. The chair is available in a range of natural colours and works well in living spaces, sun rooms and bedrooms.
