What about a couple of Eames Occasional Tables? You can group together or separate and fairly low for use with a Togo.

Speaking of Robin Day, I was telling a mate how much I like the Leo chair. He said it's essentially the Tudor of lounge chairs. : ( His cheek is still red I slapped him so hard..

Thanks for the suggestion. A group of smaller tables could work but I think the Togo being such a bulky thing needs a table which is a bit less delicate looking.

Never been a fan of grouping occasional tables, but speaking of grouping, what about a couple of these?

Probably not ideal now post-Brexit with imports, but thought I'd mention.

Like that material Conductor but shape not for me. Playing around the the USM Haller thing seems to have some good options and the chrome has a 70s look.

Lovely that but out of budget for me. Also with marble on 5 sides it will weigh a tonne so can't be moved around easily. Vintage Milo Baughman marble tables would be good if my budget was higher.

You could go straight to the source on something like this and commission someone like Hobbs in Somerset to make one for you. Have commissioned them before for a photoshoot and they’re great.

Interesting. Wonder if they could make a top to this for less than the cost of their option.

They definitely can. They cut to size and finish in-house so will probably work out cheaper. They’ve done new tops for Knoll Tulip tables before.

In the case above you’d need to give them the proper dimensions and corner radius if you can’t get down there yourself. Would be under £250 I imagine compared to the £720 being charged above.

We got the Togo footstool which is great for putting your feet up and a couple of Eames LTR that are pulled out when we need them

Good shout, dismissed these new on cost grounds. 20s design but think it looks more modern.

Ta, tried the footstool and really comfortable but think it's too big and square for our space. Would like to get one at some point! Trying to buy modular or versatile things.

Anyone know if swoon’s delivery estimates are fairly accurate? They have a really nice mid century corner tv stand we like the look of but delivery is fucking June Laughing out loud

Finding anything that looks nice, will fit a corner shaped space and doesn’t have a 40 week wait for delivery is proving to be impossible

Likely from Asia. A local carpenter may do something for around the same price?

After a reasonably priced Bauhaus style bed in Kingsize for the kids room.

Few on 1st dibs, prices are a joke on that site.

Bed design/choice in the UK is terrible.

1stdibs pricing very negotiable though
I got stuff from one of the sellers there for significantly less (dealt directly with them though)

just got my new chairs, so ready to let go of these. decent condition. £65 a pop, collection only from NW london.


blue sun tree repro wishbone chairs x 4




also got a virtually unused ikea lounge chair, £70.



upholstery isn't as 'striped' as this, more of a solid grey - much nicer
