Relax and take it easy with this chaise longue. £382

There’s something really decadent about a chaise longue, for some reason they always remind me of lounging Hollywood starlets in film noir flicks.

Of course you can still have a chaise longue in your home even if you’re not an Oscar-winning actress and we love this one from Sheer Home. With its buttoned back and curvy lines, you could be forgiven for thinking it was a piece of vintage furniture.

It will make the perfect addition to your living room or how about using it to create a vintage-style boudoir.

And what we really love about it is that you can choose from 27 fabrics to have it upholstered in or use your own fabric to create a truly bespoke item of furniture.

Vintage furniture from Zoe Murphy

Take a fresh look at vintage furniture with this gorgeous chest of drawers. £850.

We’ve been busy at Furnish.co.uk, not just working on bringing you some of the hottest brands around but we were pounding the streets of London for London Design Festival seeking out new designers.

And we can tell you we weren’t disappointed. From 100% Design at Earl’s Court to TENT London in the heart of the East End, we met and saw some of the best designers Britain and further afield have to offer.

By the end of it, we were exhausted but happy with our new finds and buoyed by the designers infectious love of all things interior.

One young lady we came across at TENT was a prime example. Zoe Murphy’s stand was swamped with journalists and design students clambering to see her beautifully painted vintage furniture.

We love her pieces, which Zoe sources from second-hand shops and then gives them her own unique painted twist.

We’ve got our eyes on this chest of drawers but there are also chairs and side tables to choose from. We reckon this Zoe is going to be big news in interiors, so grab one of her pieces now while you can...
