I have been doing some research to find the perfect signature armchair for a clients sitting room, a unique piece that is sculptural, a design classic and of course comfortable.

Inspired by the sexy lines of mid century Italian furniture I set out hunting around some of my favourite suppliers. I found some great chairs and I thought I’d share them.

The Inspiration

1. Franco Albini – Tre Pezzi armchair

2. Gio Ponti – Via Dezza

3. Nicolas & Alistair – 1940’s Library chair

If you are happy to ship from Europe or America you can still find a few of these sexy original chairs around on sites like https://www.1stdibs.com/ .  Closer to home, it is a little hard so keep a watchful eye on stores likehttp://nicholasandalistair.com/ they come up occasionally and are snapped up fast.

These chairs have inspired a new generation of design classics that are easily available and would look stunning in any home.
