Investing in furniture is only something I’ve only started to do as I’ve entered my thirties. When I was younger, pretty much everything would be from Ikea and I wouldn’t care. But time has passed and I’ve started to earn a little more buck, I’ve chosen pieces of furniture that I’ve not only loved, but I know will last a lot longer than an MDF flatpack.
This is where furniture retailer Nest comes along. This interiors store started life in 2002, founded by Christian Hawley following a year out travelling the world. On returning to the UK, Hawley decided to set up shop with some of the most lust worthy designers and craftsman out there. Located in Sheffield, this store has since expanded online, with a website showcasing over 15,000 products, as well as retaining the original Sheffield showroom. Ranging from furniture, to lighting, textiles and decorations, it’s definitely worth a visit – especially if you’re a fan of Scandi interiors.
At the very heart of this store is beautiful design. From the classic DAW Eames chair, through to this sleek Tom Dixon design below, I wanted to bring together six statement pieces of furniture to whet your interiors appetite. I’m currently looking for a statement chair to add to the corner of my bedroom and am struggling to decide between a classic Louis Ghost Chair or a soft pastel pink upholstered armchair – two very different designs, but two which I think could work in the corner if styled correctly.
Anyway, here are six expertly crafted chairs, which I think – although pricey – are worth the investment. Especially the Tom Dixon one which I’m obsessing over now. New car or new chair? New car or new chair? Tough life decision…
