Scandi design has taken over British homes since IKEA launched in the UK and also in the last few years with the explosion of mid-century decor.
Budget-friendly pieces keep coming up in the market now and then, making Scandi Design a perfect partner for young professionals who rent as well as first-time home-buyers.
While smaller furniture in this style is relatively cheap, these days you struggle to find a good quality high-back armchair less than £800.
Filling this gap, is Burton on Trent based company Sloane & Sons, who launched their Angel chair (a hybrid high back chair that is based on the 1950s Contour Chair design of Australian Grant Featherston) that at £199 is not only affordable but also comes in 9 colors to match any decor.
Based on a recognizable design and offering comfort levels that would rival many of the much more expensive designs, the Angel chair found itself right at home in not one but three different settings in our own home, proving how wonderfully versatile it can be.
Set against this black and white mural (Surface View) in the Seasonsincolour blogger office, the color is shown off, making the armchair a centerpiece in the room.

Burnt orange is a favorite summer colour for me to wear but obviously, it works well so well in interiors too.
And as a warm colour it can help balance out grey walls which are so popular in English homes of late (including mine, see it in our living room makeover with terracotta colors here) bringing some much-needed pizzazz to make for a cozy abode. It also works in harmony with teals (another very hot color trend).
In the living room, where the walls are grey, I was wondering whether the carpet which has terracotta in it, would be able to work with the intense colour of the chair's fabric. I was not disappointed.
I did not have enough time to sort out a Scandi side table for styling purposes, but if I did the photo below would have aced with a nest of two round tables and a Jielde lamp.
The cushions were chosen as it echoes colors from the big painting above the chair while on the side table, a Hermes scarf box matches the color of the chair.
You can accessorize this chair with mid-century themed art like these gems from ETSY.
And if you want to keep things minimal, use a sheepskin, especially during the winter months. This way you nail the Scandi look and feel cozy and warm.
By the way, this is the Farrow & Ball Mole's Breath colour which F&B recommends as the perfect partner to Charlotte's Locks, an intense orange colour.
In terms of comfort, this is more of a relaxing and reading chair, as it has a lightly tilted back - this chair needs a stool and you could go to sleep in it!
It has generous proportions and will not move about, yet it is light enough so that you can move it from room to room without calling the AA.
Beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit on, this chair will complement Scandi and mid-century-inspired decor. And if orange is not your color, which one would you choose?
