Flicking through the AFR magazine I came across a photo of 2 guys sitting on a 3-seater version this red sofa:
The design is from Established & Sons, an English furniture designer and manufacturer. It is a young company (first collection in 2005) but quickly established (pun not intended!) themselves in the international landscape with their witty contemporary designs.
E&S has a link to fashion - CEO Alasdhair Willis' wife is Stella McCartney.
Here are my picks from their collection:
The Quilt chair. Visually striking, I hope it's comfortable! It comes in a sofa as well.
The Tutor chair. It's classic and modern at the same time. I wouldn't mind some to go with our dining table.
Both chairs are upholstered with man-made fabric, I suspect Stella would not approve if they use leather.
I don't know if the stools are flat enough to put a coffee on, if so it can be used as a coffee table in this configuration.
The Open Room No 1. The designer intended this to act as "a room within a room". I love it.
The Two Timer clock. Perfect if your loved ones is in another time zone.

The Font clock. A delightful twist of the calendar clock. I want one.
Check out more of their designs on their home page, and watch a fun video of one of their designe when you arrive.
Established & Sons are available from Living Edge in Australia.
