It packs all the wooden curves of a mid-century design, but this Maya armchair from Darlings of Chelsea is actually a modern piece.
Designed as a telephone chair – or indeed for anywhere requiring a table/chair, the Maya is handcrafted, with a low back, soft cushioned fabric seat and spiral side table, with a choice of fabric (plain or patterned) available for upholstery and natural, cherry, walnut or wenge available for the chair legs and spiral table.
If I have one reservation, it’s the spiral finish on the table, which looks out of character from the rest of the design – but you can opt not to have one if you wish. Prices are around £330.
