Odds are, if you’ve been to London (or know someone who has), you’ve seen pictures of the restaurant Sketch. From its pastel pink walls to the egg-shaped bathroom stalls, the whole place is perfectly Instagrammable (it’s actually one of the most-posted spots in the world). Now you can bring the iconic look home.
As a result of the eatery’s recent chartreuse-infused redesign led by Tehran-born, Paris-based architect and designer India Mahdavi, Sketch has partnered with 1stDibs to auction off the blush tufted Mahdavi chairs, starting at just $100. Sold individually, 30 of the Charlotte armchairs will go up for sale today, while another batch of 30 will be released for bidding on June 8.
Swathed in a Pierre Frey velvet cotton with a swiveling brass base, the pieces were designed exclusively for Sketch when it opened in 2014. The scalloped back, inspired by ladyfingers, isn’t just for aesthetic appeal: The plush form makes you feel like you’re being hugged by a giant teddy bear. And can you really put a price on that?
