    I've stopped telling guests how comfy it is 'cos once they've sat in it they won't get off :D

    That's a lovely chair. Is it Scandinavian or UK/G Plan?

    I like how broad a lot of 20th Century Scandinavian design/style furniture was, they feel quite generous. There seems to have been a movement towards very large furniture by some designers, I'm about to inherit my Uncle's sideboard and it's over two metres long.

    A bit like this:

    Not sure of the chairs origin. Might be Danish. I got a load of really good nick gplan units from charity shops. This kind of stuff:

    They are great design and extremely functional, and still at the stage where you can find them cheap if you look hard enough even though in trendy shops they're fetching quite big money.
    We've got an Astro from Mrs R's Gran too:

    They used to be about £40 but I've just noticed they've shot up in the vintage shops to over a grand! :eek::eek:
