13 February 2020

Our top tips for choosing your next investment piece.

Arbor Armchair

It can be difficult to know where to spend and where to save when deciding on those larger, more significant lighting or furniture pieces for your interior. We all want to make considered purchases that will allow us to 'buy better, buy less' and reduce our environmental impact in the long term.

If you're feeling a little indecisive we’ve put together a guide on how to choose an investment piece for your home.

Our No.1 Pendant creates a unique focal point in a space with its unique wooden steam bent aesthetic.


Investing in high-quality pieces of lighting and furniture for your home will ensure that they stand the test of time and serve you well for many years to come. Seeking out durable, long-lasting items that may be a little more expensive than your usual budget will actually save you money in the long term as the necessity to replace them becomes null (which also means they are the best option for the planet too). 

As one of our most iconic designs, our No.1 Pendant, is a brilliant example of how high-quality materials and craftsmanship come together to create a timeless design that will become an heirloom of the future.

Amble Hanging Seat
Our Amble Hanging Seat is handcrafted from solid ash wood making it as durable as it is aesthetically pleasing. 

Functioning as a true statement piece, our Amble Hanging Seat is built with relaxation in mind. Sustainably sourced solid ash wood is steam bent with seemingly impossible results, creating a space that is tranquil and peaceful. Already a classic, this swinging chair makes for an intuitive investment that you'll love for years to come. 

Crib Consol Table
Finished with a flourish: our Crib Console Table and Twill Coat Stand make for interesting, functional furniture pieces. 


Another great way of getting the most out of an investment piece is to choose items that are versatile and can move around different spaces in your home, providing multiple functions.

Our Crib Console Table blends function and style. Perfectly proportioned with an unexpected twist, this design harmoniously marries functionality and creativity. Equally useful in a hallway, bedroom, kitchen or living room, the Crib Console Table is a great investment for your home.

Furthermore, our Beeble Pouffe is a playful yet highly practical piece of design. Light to carry and easy to move around, the Beeble footstool can be used as a footrest or a casual seating option when guests arrive.

Our bespoke fabric service means you can customise your Beeble Pouffe to suit your interior.


Investing in quality items will ensure that your furniture and lighting stands the test of time. This is especially important for furniture that will be used every day and subjected to heavy use, such as sofas, armchairs and tables. 

Taking three skilled makers to bend, the solid Pyrénéen oak that twists and swoops around the back of the chair, our upholstered Arbor Armchair is built to last. But more importantly, it’s designed to be incredibly comfortable.

Expert craftsmanship meets impeccable design. Our Arbor Armchair is available in three beautiful, standard colours as well as a range of bespoke fabrics.


By designing products with sustainability in mind, we can move away from the high-wastage, consumerist culture that's having such a harmful impact on our environment.
