Art Deco style Normandie chair from Benchmark
You can't beat the Art Deco style for added instant glamour to your home. It's that era that informs these Normandie chairs from Benchmark.
The clue is in their name. Designed by Terence Conran, he's drawn inspiration from the famous Deco liner SS Normandie which entered service in 1935. This translates into the sleek lines of the chair which are available with either an oak or upholstered back and in natural oak, or a 'mocha stained' colour. The chairs don't come with the striking geometric fabric pictured (though you can ring the company and ask about it) and instead they're upholstered in the customer's own fabric, allowing you to make your own interpretation of the look.
This glamorous look comes with a price tag of £595.
