The Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen is one of my favourite mid-century Danish design. A black version of Mogensen’s Spanish chair was lent to us when we photographed our home in London (see the whole feature in Grazia UK here). I wish I could have kept it… It’s a beautiful, sturdy chair, extremely comfortable with a high-quality thick leather cover and wooden frame. Have you ever tried it? This month, Fredericia releases a Special Edition of the Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen in Deep Red saddle leather. It’s a beauty! Originally designed in 1958, The Spanish Chair has been manufactured by Fredericia ever since. It’s an iconic piece you will often find in corporate settings, hotels, galleries, and private residences around the globe, reflecting Mogensen’s unique angle on modernity. What do you think of this new colour? Do you like it or do you prefer one of the other colours? What is your favourite mid- century classic chair? SHOP THE FREDERICIA CHAIR
Visiting Copenhagen is always a good idea especially when there is a new cool space to discover designed by all-time favourite Norm Architects. So if you’re planning a long weekend there, I’m inviting you to add the Menu space to your must-see list.

We all know that’s not everything but it does feel good to daydream or just to have dreams. Talking about beautiful things, I’m the proud owner of this gorgeous vintage Bertoia chair (above) and if I could, I would love to have five more to fit around our dining table so I’m really disappointed to miss out again on the Knoll sample sale in London.
I love when there is a story behind a design, the same way I love things in my home to tell a story about our family, our life and values. The Kaeko table was designed by Brazilian Rafic Farah. One day, someone asked his father: “By the way Jorge, what is the job of your son?”…
