As the founder of beauty website Rose Inc., Rosie Huntington-Whiteley knows a thing or two about skin care. But also, apparently, good seating. The model’s Instagram is an odd but wonderful mix of makeup inspiration and stunning chairs. And we’re not talking about ordinary wingbacks or kitchen stools: She has a thing for iconic Scandinavian designs. Charles and Ray Eames, Mies van der Rohe, Pierre Jeanneret—the gang’s all here. 

Huntington-Whiteley recently shared a snapshot of her and partner Jason Statham’s Malibu living room, which features a giant L-shaped sectional and, across from it, Hans Wegner’s Easy Chair. According to Design Within Reach, the beachy seat is woven from 1,300 feet of paper cord. Huntington-Whiteley gave hers a Nordic touch by draping it with a soft sheepskin.

This isn’t the first time Huntington-Whiteley has broadcast her love of furniture. A few weeks ago, she posted a picture of her birthday gift from Statham: a vintage Flag Halyard Chair (another piece by Danish legend Wegner).

Then there’s the chocolate brown Eames Lounge Chair, which she summed up with the simple caption: “Color mood.” She also showed Swiss designer Jeanneret’s Committee Chair some love. While less recognizable, the upholstered piece is essentially a cushier version of his famous cane Chandigarh Chair.  

Lesson learned from this fledgling seating connoisseur: Invest in the classics. Bring on the hygge in your own home:
