Seeing our furniture in its forever home brings us unexplainable joy every time. Whether it is new or vintage, classic or contemporary, it always puts a smile on our face. When we discovered @jill_house_home ‘s posts of her Fitzrovia Chair through #myparkerknoll, we just had to share it with you. Together with our Senior Creative Designer, Jo Butters, we’ve curated our top tips on how to achieve this 1920s inspired look.

Upholstered in Bracklyn Teal and Charlotte Teal, this compact accent chair has been effortlessly incorporated into Jill’s home. It is truly refining the Art Deco style features in her bedroom. The dual fabric combination and elegant button back detailing means it is the perfect chair to make your house a home. Exclusive to John Lewis by Parker Knoll, click here to discover Fitzrovia.

We spoke to Jill to find out why she chose Fitzrovia for her living space; here’s what she had to say;

“For months, I couldn’t decide what piece of furniture would look just right in the bay window of our newly decorated master bedroom. I took a poll on Instagram asking my followers if a dressing table, small sofa or feature chair would look best. Many people suggested a chair would be a nice spot for relaxing or reading. I agreed with their advice and started looking around at pink chairs but just couldn’t find one I liked enough. I decided pink would be too sugary sweet. When I saw the Fitzrovia chair in Bracklyn Teal with the contrasting fabric on the back, I knew it would look perfect. There is already a lot of blue in the room, so I hadn’t considered it, but this beautiful Fitzrovia chair was the answer. A combination of fabric in a classic style. We do use the chair for reading, and it’s very comfortable.”

The Fitzrovia chair is undeniably the perfect addition to that cosy reading corner. A great place to sit and become completely enthralled by your current read. Or even watch the world pass by and take ten minutes to relax with a cup of tea.

The look;

“Art Deco styling beautifully complements curvaceous lines and symmetry and lends itself to decadent boutique hotel trends that feel altogether timeless and elegant. Accents in brass, much like @jill_house_home has shown, work perfectly to create the look of classic styling. We also see glass used with stunning effect in this trend to add to the glamour and decorative charms of Art Deco styling. “ – Jo Butters, Senior Creative Designer.

Even better yet, they are available with a coordinating footstool. One of the key design features of the Art Deco period is symmetry. Click here to discover Collection 150.

“Often you can achieve this statement symmetry with pairs; a pair of armchairs make a wonderful alternative to a sofa and enables you to create an interesting vignette at home.” – Jo Butters, Senior Creative Designer.
