Unto This Last
You know how people like us are fond of a Habitat or an Ikea – good design at reasonable prices, where totty can often be found – yet recently the scrunchy-count on said outings has become, well a little to high for our likings. We blame them Swedish meatballs. Anyways, we’ve come across a wee store in London’s Glittering East End that not only a. Makes de-gorgeous furniture that look likes super-expensive contemporary design numbers yet b. Aren’t that expensive (considering how great they look) which c. Makes us very happy indeed.
The chair, for eg., is only 200 earth pounds. Table’s a wee bit more at 280 squid, but these delicious little coatstands (below) start at £55. We’re impressed. We’re also impressed that each piece is made from one piece of pre-finished sustainable birch plywood, and that they have a lovely website that lets you order via the interdolly.
NB. A factoid: they got the name – Unto This Last – from an anti-capitalist essay by John Ruskin. OooooooOOOOOooooh, etc.
