Mark midcentury-style Bosco sofa and armchair range at John Lewis


Quality rarely comes cheap, which is perhaps why the Mark midcentury-style Bosco sofa and armchair range at John Lewis isn't as cheap as we would like it.

The range is made in the UK, with exposed frames made from solid European oak, as well as featuring serpentine springs and foam and feather fillings for the cushions, the whole thing covered in a viscose and linen cloth in charcoal. Love the shape too, that low profile, buttoned back and exposed wood taking inspiration from the mid-1950s to early '60s.

There's a large sofa, medium sofa and 'snuggled', which in effect is a large armchair. You can see an image of that over the page. Pricing is from £1,600.

MARK Arris armchair from John Lewis


This MARK Arris armchair, available from John Lewis, is contemporary design but one with a distinctly mid-century feel.

This chair was designed by Gala Wright, one of the team at MARK, a Cornwall based furniture company, who also make their products within the county. That neat and angular frame is made from solid oak frame and the chair is upholstered in a striking lime fabric which enhances its retro feel. Like the look of this? There's also a two seater sofa available in a similar style. 

The chair is available for £999 while the sofa costs £1500.
