pick up sticks armchair by resident

I always love that lone armchair in the home. Quite often it sits in the bedroom, beckoning for an item of clothing to be thrown over at the end of the day or sitting elegantly beside a sideboard in the living room. It’s a statement piece, a chair that doesn’t get that every day use, but is always there as a back up to be pulled out for that extra person.

Pick Up Sticks | Resident

Pick Up Sticks, the latest armchair to be designed by Simon James for Resident here in New Zealand would suit that purpose perfectly. Launched at Edit by Design Junction during the Salone del Mobil in Milan in April, and finalist in the 2014 Home Magazine Design Awards. It’s without a doubt that this chair would certainly add a bit of eye candy to a room. The solid oak frame is impressive in its form and design with the upholstered components manufactured separately for shorter lead times. While there are a variety of custom colour options available,  I don’t know about you but I quite fancy the quilted fabric choice.

Happy weekend!

    I am fascinated by the so called Spanish chair (just learned that name) with deeply tanned leather. I have a different armchair in my bedroom using it on a daily base, not for its designed purpose but just as a bedcover storage place until the next morning. Have a wonderful weekend, Mel, hugs from Venice.

  • Okay so it's past five here so does that mean it's officially #roseoclock @sipnzrose and @qwinenz ? Happy #nzroseday everyone! I played lifestyle model for the first time on the blog if you #daretopink 😉 link in profile.

  • Okay I promise this is a #latergram and not me now at 9am!! But I can do this right, because today is #nzroseday ! For this I've teamed up with @sipnzrose (who are doing great things to support the NZ wine industry) and @qwinenz to celebrate the colour pink! Pop over to the blog to join the aperitif that I had with my good friend Tash @monsoonliving in the most beautiful location! Direct link in my profile or www.styledcanvas.com #sipnzrose
  • Kids plonked in front of the TV and stealing some me time before I make dinner. I find that if I read at bedtime, I fall asleep within 2 minutes so need to carve out time in the day if I'm going to remember anything. Anyone else like that? Look forward to discussing this book with #blogsocietybookclub tomorrow!
  • Thanks Hege @hegeinfrance for asking me to share #onefromthecuttingroomfloor This is one looking down through the festoon lights to the @foodtruckgarage diners at @cityworksdepot How about you @decordotsblog and @gucki.it ?
  • I never shy from a rosé, it's the perfect summer aperitif. NZ wine has been another discovery since moving here - they do it so well! Did you know there is a national #nzroseday ? Yep, we celebrate that kind of thing here:) so this Friday, join me, my friends, @sipnzrose and many other Kiwis and wash Instagram in every shade of pink 🌸 I'll start with this @akaruawines Akarua Rua Pinot Rosé! #daretopink #sipnzrose #nzwines Chin chin !
  • Day 2 of kids back to school and you'd think I could focus? Nope, just staring in this direction from the desk and dreaming of the next holiday!
  • Itou the cat
  • So we left this incredible view today. We had the most wonderful holiday. If you're ever after a quiet, beach holiday, Waitete Bay in the Coromandel is such a pretty spot. The crazy thing was that we quite often had the beach to ourselves. Love NZ for that. #seenewzealand #coromandel
  • This holiday we were so blessed to have one of my oldest and dearest friends, Tash @monsoonliving and her family visit from Australia for three nights. We had such a lovely time, slow easy days at the beach and late dinners in the deck when the children slept. Hooray for friendship, we really do need to nurture them, especially when we 'grow up'. While we've lived in different cities for so long, nothing changes between us each time we reunite. This is a little flat lay we made together with the children's treasures from the garden. #friendship
  • I'm sharing photos of our trek through the Tongariro Alpine Crossing on the blog today. It's been named the best 1 day hike in NZ and in the top 10 of the world. I rate it pretty damn amazing!!! Link in profile or www.styledcanvas.com
  • Lazy beach days 💙
  • Grey, beautiful and very moody #itsamoodywednesday @stilzitat @jocelynhefner
