The Style Set - A Colourful Corner

It's time again for The Style Set - where we dream up an interior space that pairs a piece from the Mr. Bigglesworthy showroom with some contemporary design faves...

Today we're imagining the corner of a colourful living room - a reading nook to be exact - inspired by these cyan-bright Mid Century Occasional Chairs. Cushions by Hay Firstly, a beautiful chair deserves a beautiful cushion, and this range from Danish designers Hay come in so many awesome colour ways. We'd choose the grey... no - the green... no - the plum... Heck, we'd choose them all - we have plenty of chairs! See more of the Hay collection here. Tim Webber Ampel Pendant A reading nook needs good lighting, so the next pick for this Style Set are the Ampel Pendants by New Zealand's own Tim Webber. Available in a range of primary shades, the pendants contrast warm natural wood (Pacific Rimu) with industrial aluminium to beautiful effect. Find stockists here. Slow Wood Side Table Another satisfying accompaniment to these chairs would be this scrumptious little side table. Handmade in the Netherlands by Slow Wood, we love its raw elegance. And the sunny yellow is a perfect buddy for our bright blue! Inaluxe Art We love the Scandinavian and woodland folk leanings of Melbourne-based artists Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd, otherwise known as Inaluxe. A range of their sweet prints - framed and unframed - are on offer at endemicworld Kirsty Whyte Limpet Hooks We believe that practicality and style don't have to be mutually exclusive, and these quirky little wall-hooks-come-wall-art are a great example of that. By one of the UK's most talented young designers, Kirsty Whyte. Available from Made.com Linus Dean Rugs Linus Dean's giant typographic rugs are hand knotted to order by craftspeople in Nepal. They're the epitome of conscious contemporary design, and we couldn't love them more. Choose your size and colour at the Linus Dean website.
