Pot­ted ivy trails a path of colour

This French-in­spired arm­chair Léonie is de­signed to look un­fin­ished. It is up­hol­stered in jute can­vas to make it look like it’s decades or even cen­turies old. The wooden frame is brushed and pati­nated by hand. The linen-cot­ton mix fab­ric moulds to the form of the seat but it is the art­ful sprawl­ing of pot­ted ivy and the way it trails across the checker­board tiled floor that adds a pop of colour. It costs about ¤490, ex de­liv­ery from UK-based Pib Home.
