Rethink the height of your furniture and create a whole new perspective for your room. This Bedouin-inspired living area, with its rich layers of rugs and throws, low-slung tables, daybed and floor cushions, instantly evokes an exotic and hedonistic ambience.
Not everything in your home needs to fulfil its intended use. Chairs can double as tables, floors used as a place to store generous piles of books and magazines, cupboard handles a place to hang decorations. Think outside the realm of traditional interior stores – this divine chair began life in a church.

Small alterations can bring new character to a piece of furniture. The handles of these wooden drawers were removed and replaced with leather thronging bought at the local shoemaker.
