doing one now with a company based in Surrey. Loft specialist. About halfway through and its a 65 sq metre loft with one large dormer and two smaller dormers at the back. Happy to have a chat with you about it.

Always the back. Nowadays this might be true, but i think back then they had some production problems at a certain year?! It was worse with panton chairs though from what i remember.

i can't remember and don't have any pics on my old hard disk, just checked…sry.
i only remember that i called vitra or some repair shop and they told me, that one year was bad and that there's a reason that vitra don't do fiberglass versions anymore.
Maybe someone else on here knows more about that?

Graham Mancha might have some Herman Miller chairs. The Hille made Eames side chairs were a bit prone to cracking, mostly on the edges of the backs on the side chairs. The arm shell chairs generally are tough as nails.

I’ve got a Herman Miller made fibreglass eames side chair in blue I’m shifting. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send over some pics. Only have the one though.

Mid century modern is all the rage at the moment, but are there any sites aimed more at Edwardian houses? I'm just buying and Edwardian property and looking for ideas.

If not too late, have a look at the Muuto Fiber high stool. Wood & tube frame options, and snip of the price.

I bought a bed from Warren Evans, and theyve gone bust. luckily i hadnt paid for it.
But more annoying I can't find another retailer selling ottoman beds that look the same…

Anyone know anywhere? Tried all the usual high st places and found nothing.

What does it look like and what price range? I've spent the last month looking at beds so may have seen something similar
