1960s-style: The Carnaby Chair by Swoon Editions

We are quite taken by Swoon Editions. In fact, at the back end of 2013, we flagged up the company's Karla Chair as well as the more recent Grace sofa and armchair and the Zoe armchair. Not content with that, we have just spotted The Carnaby Chair, which is available to pre-order now.

The idea is likely to the same as previous designs, with just a small run of each, made in partnership with small manufacturers. In this case, the chair will be made in Rajasthan, India, by a company renowned for handcarving and making high-end furniture for over 30 years. A member of the Swoon Editions team inspects each Carnaby retro chair before shipping to guarantee quality.

What you'll end up with is this generously proportioned chair with turned solid mango wood legs, curves reminiscent of classic midcentury designs and oatmeal wool upholstery.

It's a stylish thing. If you think so too, The Carnaby Chair by Swoon Editions is available to order now for April delivery, priced at £299.
