have you heard of swoon editions before? they make all their furniture lines in limited edition runs of around 100 pieces, so you really do have to be quick of the mark to get your hands on one of their lovely designs!
the company started with a simple question: does beautiful furniture have to cost so much? it’s a question i often ask myself as i struggle to surround myself with beautiful things whilst shelling out on rent in london – so much of what i love is just waaay out of my price range! i’ve been after a little bedroom chair for a long while now and swooned (!) instantly when i spotted the milly; a chic seat with a dash of refined retro and the sleek curves of a fifties cocktail chair which costs just £195, around £500 cheaper than other similar retailers.
swoon editions challenged me to style up the petite chair in it’s new home, and since it’s christmas i thought it would work wonderfully as a little reading nook next to the fireplace in my bedroom, surrounded by festive decorative accents and the heady scent of my new mulberry home orange & clove votive. i’m not one to go overboard with decorations, so in lieu of a tree i’ve added a few choice ornaments to my mantelpiece and tacked up some of my favourite cards from friends and family using washi tape to add some festive cheer – what do you think?
