It's not just designer chairs that get my vote. I love beautiful chairs regardless of price and stature.
This Stockholm easy chair from Ikea www.ikea.com is also top of my hit list and thankfully at £209, it's a little more affordable.
Again it has a nod towards mid century style, but what I really love about it is the shape. I can just imagine being curled up on it with a good book.
It's also available in beige and cerise but I think this sleek, slate grey is my favourite or then again maybe I'll just get one in every colour...
