Kicking off with some local news, the Volley Swivel Chair by Jamie McLellan is a new release from NZ design company Resident. I was instantly drawn to its unique shape which is sophisticated yet playful. Made from flat components pressed together into a comfortable three dimensional form, it features a robust swivel pedestal base allowing for 360 degrees of rotation. The Volley Swivel chair is available in a variety of upholstery finishes (also with timber legs) from Simon James Design.

A recent discovery, Melbourne-based Interior Design Studio We Are Huntly are producing some inspiring work. Founded by Kylie Dorotic and Alicia McKimm, the talented duo say they are dedicated to bringing something exclusive to each project, and it shows. Whether they are selecting a custom design print, a tailor made tabletop, or bathroom fixtures the emphasis is on craftsmanship and attention to detail. Here's a peek from their portfolio. I also recommend checking out the recently completed The Penny Drop Café.
Another one of my favourite chairs currently, the Bollo Armchair designed by Andreas Engesvik for Fogia was initiated as a typical Scandinavian lounge chair with slim features and modest use of materials. I love how the generously shaped cushions, which are designed for a heightened level of comfort, create a bold contrast to the slim metal frame. Recently nominated for the BoBedre Design award 2016 Furniture of the Year, I would love to see it win!
