‘Series 7’ chair in 7 new colours!

This September, Fritz Hansen launches the classic and versatile Arne Jacobsen’s ‘Series 7’  chair in seven new colours, including the hot pink one (above) by Arik Levy. This extremely comfortable chair was made famous when Christine Keeler, the woman at the centre of the Profumo Scandal was shot in 1963, sitting nude astride a cheaper version of the now iconic chair. The fake can now be seen in the V&A collection and can be viewed online at the V&A website.

The East Rooms – Shoreditch, London EC1

In our seemingly never ending search for a funky wedding venue, my girlfriend and I came across this stunning Private Members Club in Shoreditch, London Ec1.

The retro inspired decor blew us away with its low vintage sofas and chairs, 1970’s sideboards and luscious lighting, I would go as far as to say it is one of the coolest looking venues I have been to in London. However there was one sticking point, they do not hold a license to host Civil Ceremonies…. decisions decisions!!!
