I'm guessing you'd be quite tempted by a seating design classic on the high street from just £29 wouldn't you? Well, that's exactly what you can get with the Robin Day for John Lewis Polypropylene armchairs and side chairs.

These are classic Robin Day chairs, made for John Lewis and cheaper than the originals, although there's pretty much no difference to them. Take your pick from the 1967 Poly armchair (aka The Tub), the Poly side chair or the baby of the group – the Child's Chair.

All have that trademark high-grade polypropylene shell, a powder-coated metal frame and bright colour options to choose from. The Child's Chair is the cheapest at £29, the side chair is £39 and the Tube is £59. Affordable classics and useful too if those unexpected guests drop by. More images over the page.
