I chose to order the Milly chair in the grey linen because that works perfectly with the modern country style of the cottage I live in. I absolutely love linen as a fabric, the texture is so perfectly rustic and soft at the same time, it's durable, and it's a natural material. As soon as I saw the style of the chair, I had the perfect spot for it in my mind. So, rather than style it and shoot in our barn studio, I chose to photograph it where it will live permanently.
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know our home is a 17th century English cottage. The old part of the house is literally 2 up, 2 down with an open staircase. It is a one-and-a-half storey cottage, so our bedroom has a steeply pitched roof. When we renovated it and the steel framework was put in, we raised the height of the ceiling upstairs. But even with this work done, it is still a pitched roof and there is only so much furniture that will fit in these types of spaces. Believe me I have tried just about everything I have at home in this space, every time my husband comes home from work he sees a new effort! Not anymore though. The Milly chair, with it's low back, solid oak legs and perfect proportions gives a lovely stripped back modern feel to the room and did I mention, it's the perfect fit? I hope you like the images below.
Thank you so much Swoon Editions for this wonderful addition to my home.
