Prefer something with more of an old school desk thing going on? We love this simple natural oak nostalgic beauty.
Modernism more your thing? We like the Matthew Hilton vibes of this Made.com number.
This Robin Day-designed chair was designed in 1952. Pushing 70 years on and it’s still an absolute classic.
Prefer a more relaxed, bohemian look? Why not try this beautiful cane chair from one of our all-time favourites: Hadeda.

Who says a memory stick has to be purely utilitarian? This one proves that anything can be a thing of beauty.
