Contemporary Noah chest

The Design Collective at John Lewis showcases furniture, homeware and soft furnishings from some of the best design talent in the UK and internationally. Amongst some of the excellent designers who have products featured is Bethan Gray.

Bethan is an award-winning furniture designer who spent 10 years designing for Habitat, before going solo and launching the Bethan Gray Studio.

Bethan has produced a range of contemporary furniture exclusively for John Lewis, including furniture for the bedroom, dining room and living room.

In particular, we love the design of the Noah range, which includes sideboards, desks, tables, cupboards and this lovely Noah chest of drawers.

The chest has five drawers and offers plenty of storage inside. It’s made from solid and oak veneers and we like the ‘no handle’ look – the soft-close drawers have integral handles, rather than bulky knobs.

As you’d expect from a high quality designer piece of furniture, it comes fully assembled, so there’s no diy needed to put this beauty together!

Designer pop chair by Kartell

Kartell Pop outdoor chair

One of the top brands of contemporary designer chairs, Kartell is a name synonymous with quality.

For many people, buying a Kartell chair is an investment decision. This Pop outdoor armchair by Piero Lisso, for example, would normally set you back just over £1,000 from many retailers.

If there’s a brand you really like, it’s always worth looking out for a bargain or money-saving opportunity, where you could snap up your desired piece of furniture for a snip of the price.

If this is the chair you’ve been coveting, there’s currently a bargain to be had for someone, as Oliver Bonas have an ex-display Kartell Pop chair in their sale for just £420.

Wow factor patchwork chest

Wow! This amazing patchwork design chest of drawers give a whole new meaning to wow factor furniture.

Guaranteed to attract attention when it’s used in your home, this wonderfully eye-catching and utterly unique chest of drawers has been created by designer, Bryonie Porter, who specialises in making wallpapered furniture.

The patchwork effect has been created using a selection of wallpapers that work very well together (look carefully, and you may spot familiar designs in there). They’re covering a Victorian mahogany chest, bringing it bang up-to-date, and the piece is finished off with high-gloss lacquer to make it durable and functional.

The patchwork chest has two small drawers at the top and two full width drawers at the bottom. It’s available to purchase from Bryonie Porter.

She also takes on commissions and can create a unique piece of furniture to your own requirements.
