If you haven’t checked out Atkin & Thyme for gorgeous homeware with a bit of a quirk, you really need to. This poor armchair – classic grey velvet and yellow studs, natch – hasn’t really found a happy home with us. It was bought for the lounge, but it was too small, so it moved to my youngest’s room. But it didn’t really feel like a child’s accessory so now it lives in a corner of our room – usually buried under clothes – but I fear it won’t be long before it makes the trip downstairs again. So, yes we didn’t really need it. But who can resist a classic piece with a bit of an edge? Clearly, not me. It’s available in a different colour here.
