Indeed this year has found many of us staying in more than we ever have, and perhaps more than wish to. Home is now a place we work, live and well, even socialise, albeit virtually. And while the hope is that we’ll be inching towards some semblance of normalcy in the coming year, it will be a while so why not inject some newness into your homes? We’ve curated a list of delightfully handsome luxury pieces of furnishings and decor that will give your living, dining and sleeping areas a welcome upgrade.
Louis Vuitton Marcel Wanders Lounge Chair
Designer Marcel Wanders describes the lounge chair as “an unfolding and portable oasis for relaxation”. Comprised of three individual modules, all of which fit into each other, are made in high-tech carbon fiber, making the chair light but sturdy. The chic lounge chair is upholstered in soft leather on the outside and microfiber on the inside to keep it comfortable, while the leather straps that hold the modules together are reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s iconic travel pieces and made in natural dyed leather that will patina beautifully with age. We just love that it can be folded and tucked away, and easily carried perhaps out to your porch for an evening of stargazing.
