Can we all just stop for a minute to appreciate Mr.Jones?
I scoured the shops, poured over magazines and trawled the internet searching for my ideal sofa and then Pow! without warning in he pops into my life.
I ignored him at first.... too expensive... too fancy... too posh. But it was no good.
I can only imagine this is what Caroline Flack felt like when she was hit upon by Prince Harry. The charm gets you in the end. Even if he does wear pink.
I don't usually devote a whole post to one piece of furniture, but in this instance I must. Why? because today it's Tuesday, which from here on in I will refer to as Choose Day. It's officially the most boring day of the week so to give me something to look forward to, this is when I'm going to choose one stand out piece of housecandy, just to sit and gawp at.
This reminds me of a game I used to play with my big sister when I was little. We'd get the Argos catalogue (the kids holy grail) and choose our favourite item on each page. Oh how the hours evaporated.
Each Choose Day here on the blog I will focus on pieces that are likely to be budget stretchers, luxury or investment pieces that are quite possibly out of reach. But then, isn't all the best eye candy that way? I suggest you look, admire, add it to your Pinterest and remember why it is you're at work today earning pennies that can be put to extremely good use in the long term.
Open Plan is a new brand on my radar. They are a Portugese firm, based in London and Oporto with a focus on cutting edge design and craftsmanship. They are not your run of the mill sofa retailer and they do not produce run of the mill furniture.
The Portugese brought us Jose Mourinho (The Special One).
They brought us Piri Piri chicken. Also special.
I trust the the Portugese when it comes to hotness.
There are more pieces from this brand I'd like to share with you, but honestly? I think we better save them for another day, don't you?
For now, here he is again. Mr Jones. Made to order and available in a wide range of fabrics and finishes AND OHMYGOD GOLD METAL CAPPED LEGS.
You. Are. Welcome.
Happy Choose Day,
