John Lewis, Vintage G Plan

How did i miss this?  The latest in John  Lewis, vintage revival range.  Last year they dusted off some classic Ercol desings and gave a twist to some new and excustive pieces.

The range launched in August 2012.  Hot British designers HemingwayDesign and renowned furniture makers G Plan have teamed up for an exciting new furniture and soft furnishings collection, which will be exclusively available from John Lewis.

HemingwayDesign’s Tilly Hemingway says of the new collaboration: “G Plan came to prominence in a golden era of British Design that emerged and developed from the 1951 Festival of Britain. This era of 'Mid Century Modern' design is now inspiring a whole generation of young designers once more, and I cannot tell you how exciting it has been to be able to trawl the G Plan archive with a brief to re-interpret the brands rich history for a new generation of 'modernists'.”

Last year i had been eying up the vintage inspired Barbican range at John Lewis.  But after sitting on it and looking at the price tag, it really wasnt comfy and wanst worth the price tag.  I would much rather spend my cash on an iconic, quality designer piece from the Danish Home Store.

On screen i have to admit the vintage G-plan range does look good, perhaps its the way its styled and photographed.  Proof will be in the rear, when i sit on it.  But alas even if my bottom did like it, my bank balance wouldn't and besides for nearly £3k i would much rather invest in Danish and see my piece of furniture tripple or double in a few years.  Oh but it does look pretty in teal blue....
