Sitting Pretty

Abigail Percy, a jewellery designer I have admired for a few years now, blogged this chair a few days ago on her and her partner Ryan Bell's homeware blog. She, in the midst of relocating from Glasgow to Belfast, was imagining luxuriating in this beautiful seat from Habitat and relaxing for a few minutes amongst the chaos. Designed by Naoko Kanehira, he one the Habitat Award at New Designers in 2009 which included the design being used by the company. (I was at New Designers in 2008 showing my degree show work, though not quite lucky enough to win anything, no one wants chess sets!)

Anyway, having become increasingly obsessed with homewares, I had to post it since, thanks to Abigail, I am now also in love with this chair!

I shall now be fantasying about a space of my own which isn't a 10ft by 12ft box with nearly a quarter of a centuries of things piled up in it.

Nice chair - this (http://www.conranshop.co.uk/ProductDetails.aspx?pid=204798&cid=Armchairs&language=en-GB) is better.

That's much more you, the habitat one, you've got to admit in your position as elder sister, is much more me.
