50s-style Sidde armchair from Heal’s


This Sidde armchair is another treat from Heal's new Scandinavian season. 

Like the other designs in the collection, this design looks to the 1950s for its influence, evident in its sloping shape and taped wooden legs. Even the colourways – pick from lavender or jade – are mid-century inspired. The chair has been designed by John Jenkins, the man behind the Archiv Storage unit we featured a few weeks back. There's also a (non-sloping) footstool available to match. 

The chair £1150, while the footstool will set you back an additional £595.

John Jenkins Studio Desk

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain, Heal’s has gone all out with the promotion of 1950s-inspired products, many of which we’ve mentioned here before. One that is new to us, and definitely worth looking at, is the John Jenkins Studio Desk, created exclusively for Heal’s.

The desk is made from a combination of oak and walnut veneer and features a drop-down work surface. The rest of the unit provide a good amount of storage space, although if that isn’t enough for you, there are other office units in the same range.

The desk costs £895 from Heal’s.
