50s-style lounge chair by & then design

&then chair

Looking for some alternative mid-century seating, away from some of the most famous designs of the period? Try this lounge chair from & then design. Like the company's Leigh cabinet, it's an up-to-date take on mid-century style, in this case specifically inspired by Scandinavian design of the 1950s.

The influences are clear but there's enough unique touches here – such as the brightly coloured upholstered seat and the sharp lines of its arms – to make the chair an attractive and distinctive design in its own right. 

The chair costs £830.

Tennis wallpaper from Turner Pocock Cazalet


Though we've featured hundreds of trainers and items of clothing that draw on the rich heritage of tennis, it's hard to think of its influence on home wares. Well, all that could change with this Tennis wallpaper from Turner Pocock Cazalet

The wallpaper uses a repeat design of tennis bats and balls in the classic colours of white and green, of course featuring the yellow balls too. There's a close-up of the pattern over the page. Although it's a very unusual design, it recalls novelty patterns of the 1920s and 30s. 

If you like the idea but not the game featured, they've also created a wallpaper featuring that other classic British sport – cricket.

Also available in more neutral vintage colour way, a roll costs £70.50.
