On a dull, somewhat uninspiring Monday morning, we need furniture that will liven things up….and you can’t get much better than a spinning chair.
The aptly named Spun chair is designed by Thomas Heatherwick for Magis and is a great example of a fun and funky contemporary furniture design. Ever wanted to spin around your office on a giant spinning top? This chair will allow you to do just that!
Swivel in a circular rocking movement, spin full circle or simply sit back and relax – the choice is yours.
Available in several suitably lively colours – including red, green and yellow – the spun chair is available from various retailers, including The Conran Shop, who have it in stock from £342.
Are you brave enough to try the Spun chair? See it in action:
We’ve featured the brilliantly designed contemporary Flux chairs before and, if you’ve been hankering after one, then here’s a fab Friday bargain for you.
Designed by Tom Schouten and Douwe Jacobs, the Flux chair is made from a single piece of tough polypropelene.
One of the key benefits of this design, and something that sets it apart from other chairs, is that, when not in use, you can fold the chair down into an envelope shape, so that you can easily and effortlessly store your chair.
Flux chairs are available in a range of colours from the classic black and white, to vibrant red and orange, or soft blue and grey.
Urban Outfitters have the Flux chairs available in eight colour choices and they’ve all been reduced online from £125 to £80 each – giving you a saving of £55.
If you’re looking for designer homeware and furniture at a fraction of the high street price, then Made.com is always worth checking out. Amongst their current offers are some good deals on these giant Piggy Bag seats.
Made in the form of an oversized, giant beanbag, the Piggy Bag moulds to fit your body shape, so can be sat on, laid on or curled up on. They’re great for casual or occasional seating and, as the fabric is durable, can be used out in the garden too (although it’s best not to leave them out there overnight).
Made.com are selling The Piggy Bag in a lovely choice of colours, including lime green, turquoise, red, titanium, grey and chocolate, plus a lively patriotic Union Jack design.
The chair is a great size and shape and it’s given a brilliant zing by the bright red patterned cover.
If you’re not usually into florals, then this is a good option, as it’s not too ‘in your face’ floral. They say the fabric features, ‘white silhouettes of branches and flowers,’ but it reminds us of delicate blooms of cow parsley.
One big bonus is that the fabric cover can be removed, so if you get fed up with the red and white design, you can change it for something else.
