In need of a good looking chair to post about, we headed over to bark, a Cornish based collaboration between husband and wife team, Jonathan Walter and Lakshmi Bhaskaran. Walter and Bhaskaran 'offer a fresh take on bespoke, British-made, furniture. Their work harks back to a bold period in furniture design and is inspired by the mid-century modern era, when confidence in proportion, modesty in detail and simplicity of construction were the defining characteristics'. It's difficult to pick a favourite when glancing through bark's collections, but this beautifully proportioned desk chair from their Brecon range made us go weak at the knees! Made from Ash and upholstered in an orange colourway from their new collection of signature fabrics, this compact chair with it's stunning angles and low back is, in our opinion, simply delightful!
