I got the Mags Soft sofa and bought it from the HAY store in Bath.


The problem now seems to be fire proofing, but I think I’m just being fobbed off.

Initially I ordered a new hackney in harald (I already have one) but was then told that harald was no longer available as it no longer meets fire regs. Loads of websites still list it as an option. I’ve ordered it in a different fabric but like I say, I was told yesterday that it was being delayed although at this stage they’re still saying it’ll be before Christmas

Anyone got any recommendations for websites/ places in London selling decent wooden desk chairs? Similar to HAY that kind of thing but without the 10 week wait Laughing out loud

Yep. Hairs, crumbs and shit get interwoven and intrenched in the wool as the 'balls are so tightly packed together.

Lived with mine in the living room for about 3 months tops before binning it off into the conservatory (where I have underfloor heating so it's heading for the tip now winter's here).

They look great but when you know what's potentially in there (no matter how hard you clean the thing!) you'll soon get fucked off with it.

Dunno about sales (Homesense maybe?) but https://www.nisbets.co.uk are always very competitive for knives and cookware if you're not bothered about it being designery.

Anyone came across a chair like this in the UK? Preferably for around 1k or less.

So comfy. I could sit in it for hours.

Looks similar to the Swedese Lamino which is ridiculously comfortable bit over a grand though
