Objects Of Design #172: Peg Chair

Multi-tasking piece of furniture

On the basis that most of us have bathrooms that aren’t quite as big as we’d like them to be any piece of furniture that you can squeeze in there had better earn its keep. This is that piece. Intended originally for halls for you to hang coats and be able to sit down and do up or take off shoes, this also works brilliantly in the bathroom. Hang towels on it and then you can sit down to dry between your toes or pull it up to the side of the bath and use it as a table to rest your book or drink while you bathe. £450
