I wrote a I Love Mondays post back in September about Fashion for Home, designer furniture at affordable prices. I was really taken with the furniture, and was amazed at some of the prices available for very design led pieces. I was contacted by Fashion for home, and asked if I would like to review a piece of furniture for them, and given a budget to do so. Of course I jumped at the chance. I had my eye on a couple of things by Sean Nix, whose style I really love. I choose two items, the first being the Tripod Walnut side table, reduced from £199 to £129 :
I love that it is so quirky! It is three circular table tops, atop pedestals, which look like dowling rods of varying heights. The table tops are veneered in a choice of White Oak, or Walnut, the table tops are supported on sturdy, solid wood legs.
Its gorgeous from every angle. It’s definitely something that is very functioning, and not style over substance. I haven’t really got the space for a traditional side table, as it would be too close to the living room door. This one feels like it wraps itself around a section of the sofa, and so taking up less space.
It arrived, wrapped, and in a box in perfect condition. Its looks and feels expensive, and well crafted. There are no nasty joints, it looks like a piece of art.
Here is how it looks from the where I would sit on the sofa.
I am so happy with it, I really wanted to get somewhere safer to put my drink, in the evening, or even my iPad, and this works perfectly.
The items ordered come directly from the factories, where these pieces are made. They are produced ‘on demand’ and so the wait time for the items are longer that most items of furniture. I had to wait 8 weeks for the table, I was updated on the progress of the table by email, throughout the process. It actually meant that the anticipation grew, as I waited for it to arrive. The time frame it takes, is definitely something to keep in mind, but for me, it was most definitely worth the wait.
