Playing with textures is a handy hint when transforming simple spaces into designer homes. The Replica Bentwood Chair ($49) showcases the true beauty of contrasting textures with its smooth, sleek black finish of the metal chair and the rustic, natural wood finish of the seat.

Featuring oak legs and a grey upholstered seat, our Samba Dining Chair ($59) is a showstopper that is sure to wow your guests all at a price tag that won’t break the bank. You can style the Samba against a colourful palette to give your entertaining space a bright pop of colour. It also makes for a fun and playful vibe that gets everyone into the mood to kick-off a games night.
