Industrial Leather Chair

6th September 2016

This industrial leather chair is one of my favourites. And also, apparently yours as the stockist, our friends at Rockett St George find it hard to buy enough of them. But I wanted to show them to you today for one particular reason. We have become so used to buying online and, very often these…

21st October 2015

Turning our attention to tables today. We have a gigantic old pitch pine thing that came from a junk shop about ten years ago and cost £250. It was peanuts cheap for a table that size and is one of the best pieces of furniture in the house. If we’re being technical it’s slightly too…

Now you know we like to mix it up a bit here at the Mad House, so after yesterday’s ultra-modern customised Ikea kitchens, it’s time for a little industrial vintage. Which, incidentally, I would totally put into a contemporary Ikea kitchen. I don’t know why I’m saying “would” since I have done just that but…

I recently wrote about a new book by stylist Joanna Thornhill which is all about tips and tricks to make your home more you. It’s aimed at those in rented accommodation and first time buyers who have no money left to buy furniture once they’ve bought the walls and roof. I felt at the time,…
