Arch 389 – Hackney


This is such a good retro furniture shop. I was in need of an ergonomic chair for my desk as the one I have is one of those little french cafe style chairs which frankly are damn uncomfortable over any length of time. So I thought I would stop by Arch 389 and see if they had anything vaguely appropriate. I just can’t bring myself to buy one of those proper ergonomic office chairs and they may be comfortable as hell but they just don’t fit in with the look I’m going for. So I ended up getting a Bentwood rocking chair. Yup really practical. Not only is it way too low for my desk but it rocks back and forth. It does look nice though. They have lots of funny little chairs and nice desks, mirrors and cabinets, it’s not that cheap but everything has been carefully selected. It’s the sort of stuff you find at car boot sales and house clearances in Hereford for about £10 but I can’t be bothered to go to Hereford so I drop by here on my way to pick up fresh bread at the E5 Bakehouse next door.
