Parlour Range // Alexandra Reid

Making its debut at Denfair 2016, The Parlour Range by Alexandra Reid is a collaboration with B Seated Bespoke and aesthetically pushes the boundaries of home furniture.    Think clean lines, geometric shapes, and playful pastel shades. The Parlour Range is inspired by the pieces that you may find in a traditional parlour room, designed to welcome and entertain guests, but with an evident modern twist. The many wonderful and unique shapes of the range present an opportunity for the pieces to shine as individual statement pieces. They can also be used together to create unique spaces that encourage interaction, conversation, and engagement. Geometric shapes are rarely used in the form of furniture because of their harsh appearance and often impractical shapes. This didn’t bother Alexandra. In fact, it was the undiscovered and underused beauty of these unusual shapes that inspired the Parlour Range and ultimately, sets it apart “I am slightly obsessed with how shapes fit together and how we interact with them in a space. As the hexagon shape can be quite harsh I wanted to soften it with natural …

We’re bent on bentwoods!

Who wouldn’t be? Thonet is the master of bent wood furniture and has created an iconic design that has sprung up all over the contemporary hospitality scene. But behind this go-to-cafe-chair is a history and practice that defines the Thonet brand. The skill of bending wood had been practiced by the Greeks and the Egyptians long before it became a part of a process that produced chairs on a mass scale.  They did so by boiling and steaming the wood, or directly exposing it to the fire. Thonet replicated this practice with the intention of creating high quality furniture and supplying it to the masses at an inexpensive price. If bending laminated veneers doesn’t sound hard enough, try to imagine bending solid wood without the outer layer splitting! Thonet did just that. Being the genius he was, Thonet altered the physics of the material by adding a metal strip to outer curve, allowing the wood to bend and stretch. He often created bent wood spirals to demonstrate the extent of wood manipulation and the endless possibilities of chair …
