Midcentury-style Nina occasional chair at John Lewis


Liking the quirkiness of this new arrival at John Lewis, the Nina occasional chair.

A new piece, but with a midcentury-inspired design and a funky bit of upholstery (Voyage fabric), very much in keeping with the era that inspires it. Those legs are stained hardwood, as are the back supports.

If you want one, £599 is the price.

Laura Ashley midcentury-style Colinton occasional chair now discounted and in fabric finish


Back in our ancient history (2007 to be precise), we featured the Colinton occasional chair from Laura Ashley. Back then it was in leather-only finishes and at full price. Right now, it's got fabric finishes for the upholstery, a matching footstool and best of all, both are discounted.

So if you want this 50s-style gem, complete with those diagonal legs (in a choice of finishes), those lovely curves for both the back and arms and a fabric finish in what seems like an almost-endless choice of cloths, head over the the Laura Ashley site to get a closer look.

Full price is £800, but right now it retails for £600. see over the page for the footstool too – that's also discounted, this time to £225.
