1960s-style Cora hanging chair from BHS

Cora chair

It's a classic look for a 60s-style interior and it's available on the 2011 highstreet courtesy of the Cora hanging chair from BHS

The hanging chair not only offers a great retro look but is the perfect accompaniment to some of their retro style lighting we've been featuring recently. It's not just for indoors too – thanks to its self-supporting steel frame, this chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. 

Not so cheap, but still reasonably priced when compared to similar designs, the chair costs £799.

Wild and Wolf ‘Folklore’ Enamel Teapot

Folklore-enamel-coffee-pot-teapot
Folklore is a new design created by Nina Jarema, inspired by the Ukranian forests of her childhood and used to decorate a range of homewares including this Enamel Teapot.

Nina’s decorative motifs incorporate woodland creatures and have a retro seventies feel thanks to a distinctive paisley element to their design.

The pot is enamel coated and suitable for either tea or coffee. Enamel has long been used to make camping crockery and this pot would make a great accessory for a comfortable camping (or “glamping”) holiday.

The pot costs £14.95 and you can buy it from Bloomsbury & Co here.

Update: This is now discounted to £9.50 at Achica.

Serralunga Barceloneta Chair – classic Barcelona Chair gets an update

Barc1

Yes, at first glance it does indeed look like the classic Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe. But it's actually a new design, the Serralunga Barceloneta Chair.

Think of it as a Barcelona for the modern era, with designer Raffaella Mangiarotti using a mix of polyurethane and aluminium to produce a chair both indoor or outdoor use, slimming down the design so it's abel to stack up too – see over the page for an idea of how that works. He even keeps that 'quilted' leather look for the seating by using a sophisticated 'rotating moulding system' that's apparently no easy thing to do.

Plenty of colours available, all priced around £654.
