Here are Est headquarters we are a little obsessed in our pursuit of finding the perfect chair for any given situation - whether its to add a burst of colour and detail, create a cozy reading nook, or a perfect dining chair for a long lazy lunch it seems our design quest is insatiable.  You may have noticed the tell tale sign of our obsession as we like to feature one on every cover!

One of our perennial favourites is the iconic Tolix A Chair by Frenchman Xavier Pauchard. The go to chair for anyone looking to channel a little industrial chic to their scheme, Pauchard's design classic is a standout for both its functional strength and its beguiling simplicity.

We are mad for this combination of buttery leather and galvanised steel. The ultimate in industrial sophistication.  -  fancy fitted vegetable-tan leather covers by Henry Wilson

We also love Tolix H Stools. The perfect kitchen counter partners in a monochromatic Belgian style kitchen. Photographed by Georgina Skinner for Est Magazine
