It’s been a while since a furniture collection has “wowed” me, but the range by London based Somerville Scott & Co. did just that. As far as I’m concerned these designs tick all the right boxes for me – they’re elegant, well made, beautifully detailed and made from quality materials.
The Sloop club chair – very versatile looking, great lines, and I’ve always been a sucker for studs 😉
The Minx sofa – so classic! The contrast coloured buttons are super cute, but I have to say I love the brass strip detail along the bottom!
The Felidae I chair is another classic, and again very versatile. Love the detailing at the top of the legs there, just enough to make it stand out from the crowd.
The Precisionist’s table is a beautiful combination of brass, walnut and leather – so luxe looking. Great as a desk or a dining table.
The Miss Helen buffet – ebonized walnut with marble top, with a brass plinth, hardware and interior. Stunning.
The Curiosity Cabinet I – a mix of brass, ebonized walnut, lacquer and gold leaf. A bit like what I would imagine Paul Dupre-Lafon meets Alice in Wonderland would look like…

P.S. I want to thank you all for the lovely comments and emails from my last post, but I also want to reassure you that I have no intention of turning this blog into a daily soap opera of my personal life, and will restrict news to work related topics. Speaking of which, I should have some more for you soon – so stay tuned!
Glad you like as much as me Mary & Kelly…
…and thanks for the message Stuart – keep up the great work!
Dear Studio Annetta,

This is a stunning line with elements of Deco and later Modernism, yet with a new twist. The sideboard is amazing.
Beautiful pieces. Love the Sloop chair, and the name too!! The small details like the nailhead trim on the Sloop chair and the brass on the Minx sofa have real impact.
