The Style Set - Bachelor Pad

Slide off your loafers, loosen your tie, and sit down with a Style Set fit for a debonair kind of dude...

Arne Norell Leather Sofa The inspiration for this sartorial fella's space is the very masculine, self-assured form of the Arne Norell Leather Sofa. The chocolate leather (in superb original condition) and contrasting teak says strength, confidence, and a touch of brooding mystery... sound familiar? Part of our New Day Light collection at Mr Bigglesworthy. Normann Copenhagen Whiskey Glasses Before we take in our surroundings, pour yourself a dram. The famous Normann Copenhagen Whiskey Glasses are as simple as they are sophisticated. Shop directly at Design Denmark. Fort Standard Bottle Opener More a beer kind of man? Pop the top with something a little more classy - it makes the brew taste better, honest. This bottle opener in solid brass is just the ticket. Designed by New York-based duo Fort Standard, and available in NZ from Everyday Needs. Gallery Stool You'll need a side table to put that drink down on. The award-winning Gallery was originally designed in 1998 by Hans Sandgren. Now sold all over the world. Yes, it's a stool - but we also think it works as a sculptural side table. Get it from Design Denmark. Tom Kundig: Houses With your feet up, leaf through a coffee table book. Tom Kundig is one of the world's most exciting, inventive and influential contemporary architects, and Houses chronicles several of his most playful, notable projects. Sip away as you dream of owning a Kundig digs... Available at Book Depository with free worldwide shipping. AJ Floor Lamp Set the mood with some lighting. Created by design icon Arne Jacobsen, the AJ Light is as striking today as it was in the 1960's. We think the black, petrol blue or sand colourway would look especially handsome standing behind the sofa, lighting your pages. Available in NZ from Corporate Culture. Adnet Leather Mirror In 1950, Jacques Adnet partnered with French fashion house, Hermes, to develop a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. We absolutely love this round leather mirror with brass hinges, produced today by Gubi and also available from Corporate Culture. Wool Throw This grey herringbone throw is 100% wool and is a great softener to the bold form of the sofa. Invite some company over, and cuddle up. Buy online here.
