Cocktail hour’s taken a cosy twist with the meeting of English furniture marker George Smith and designer Martin Brudnizki. The ‘Cocktail’ collection comprises three armchairs and two sofas, all curves and thoughtful detailing. Each piece is hand constructed and everything, from the colour of the stain on the ash legs to the fabric itself, can be customised. ‘Martin has perfectly captured the glamour of cocktail hour,’ says Ben Norris, CEO of George Smith. We’ll drink to that. Pictured, from left: ‘Hogarth’ chair, £3,205; ‘Almack’ chair, £4,694 ( georgesmith.com).
