brass lights by workstead and stool by another country

There were so many wonderful things to see at Clerkenwell that I can’t possibly talk about them all, but in addition to the candy coloured salvaged lights I wrote about the other day, another of my highlights was the stand at Another Country. They make my perfect furniture: influenced by the Scandinavian, the Japanese and the Shaker aesthetic.

Don’t you love this stool? The simple clean lines and oof  *fans self* the little touches of brass that just give it a cool edge. Paul De Zwart, the founder, told me that they will customise everything for just an extra 10 per cent so if you see something on the site but want it changed in any way: size, colour etc then it’s worth contacting them. I just love that this has a low back that doubles up as a handle for moving it around.

In addition to their rather lovely furniture, Another Country have also recently become the exclusive UK stockists of Workstead. I featured their interiors work on the blog a while back, mainly because I just loved it, but now we can buy their lights (pictured in at the top) here too.

I shall have to start saving as one of those brass wall lights (well probably two would be best) would look fanastic on my grey sitting room wall overlooking my soon-to-be-delivered new grey velvet sofa … watch this space.

My new sofa doesn’t look anything like this by the way, but it’s a great image so I thought you could enjoy it too.
