Objects Of Design #179: Covo Alfred Side Chair

Perfect for the bathroom

Another one of those clever multi-tasking bits of furniture. Sit down while your dry or paint your nails and/or hang your towel or clothes over the back. This is magenta but it also comes in blue, natural, black and white and could be a great way to add a splash of colour to what is often a fairly monochrome room. £256.50
