Winging It

Tom Dixon is without a doubt one of our most prolific and important designers. After all, you would kinda have to be to be given the role of Head of Design at Habitat. 

So I decided it was high time, on this decidedly frosty Saturday morning, to feature one his creations. 

This is the Wingback Chair and I adore everything about it. 

Firstly, I love its shape, so dramatic and curvaceous, then I love its colour. I would usually steer clear of black furniture but you can't really imagine this theatrical chair in any other shade and lastly I love the fact that it looks so comfortable. 

It looks like it would swallow you up, not a bad thing when the temperature outside continues to drop.
