Collaborations between fashion and furniture design brands have been more common in the recent years. When a collaboration like this is announced they always intrigue me in how two opposite fields will merge together and what the outcome will be. The latest example of this is the chair Coat, made by Swedish fashion brand Hope's founder Ann Ringstrand and carpentry studio Svenska Station. Coat will be an extension of Hope's autumn collection in fashion, Urban Wood , who has drawn inspiration from the Swedish countryside moved to an urban environment.
As the name tells you, Coat isn’t just for sitting, but is also meant to store your clothes and accessories, a stylish and more practical alternative to the messy pile that many of us tend to make at the end of a long day on our bedroom furniture or floor. The chair comes with a shelf and two hooks, and an optional pocket made of leather or felt, and in three finishes, natural birch or black stained plywood.
This will become available on the 15th of August. I recommend jumping over here next for a great interview with Ann (in Swedish).
