Teal is set to be the hot blue of Spring 2016, as displayed by this beautiful Oriel armchair from Rume.
Some armchairs are simply destined to be the object of desire. They widen eyes and quicken hearts. Their images are downloaded, saved, ‘pinned’, put in a hidden file where they can be enjoyed at will, when no one else is looking. These longings are kept secret from your current armchair for fear of misunderstanding, ridicule, jealousy. After all you have been together a long time, it is a perfectly good armchair, one that you sit on almost every night, the fact that you can’t bear to look at it any more and that its comfort depends on thirteen cushions is neither here nor there. It is the chair you have, love the one you’re with.

Rume delivers its furniture throughout the UK. International transport can also be arranged on a case by case basis.
Rume was established ten years ago when husband and wife Richard and Libby Baker left the family furniture firm to strike out on their own. The philosophy behind the new company was to delight in the beautiful and the beautifully made and to pursue this by making lovely furniture of original design to the very highest standards here in England. Taking the idea of classic English furniture as a starting point Richard stripped it back to its barest essentials to capture its inimitable timelessness. It is this enduring yet contemporary quality that is quintessentially rume.
