The collection is ‘inspired by the elegance of Scandinavian modernism and mid-century Italian design.’ The sculptural furniture within the collection is designed to create a separate space within an ‘Open Home’. For example The Pondok Sofa above has high arms and back acting as a divider between it and the space around it.

These are the two armchairs within the collection. The one on the left, Nami High Back Armchair, follows the same guidelines of a sculptural piece as the Pondok Sofa. The Mudra Low Back Armchair, on the right, is equally as wide but with a low back and a ercol/Scandinavian feel to it.

Stepping away from seating this collection also has coffee, console and side tables, a lamp and a rug. The lamp seen above is the Falcon LED Table Lamp the lamp is blocky and uses contrasting colours to create a contemporary piece. The Ballet console table has tall legs that create a simple structure that holds the tabletop. ‘Designed to suggest a sense of light-footedness, it is a characterful contemporary take on a traditional typology.’ (John Lewis website). Finally, this is the Phulkari Rug made in India with a Soumak crafted technique. Its intricate colourful geometric chevrons and stripes are the perfect accompaniment to the curves of the furniture.
