You would never leave your pad with one stiletto, or eat take-out with one chopstick. And you wouldn't dream of outfitting your dwelling with just one of the Battersea Mid-century Chairs when you could have the pair.Refurbed and reupholstered, the pretty seats hail all the way from the '60s and make for the perf addition to any eclectic, stately or oh-so-dainty motif. Thankfully any retro-kitsch has been stripped away, leaving just the funky black upholstery and red lacquered wood. And because you know Battersea is far more than a borough outside of London (or a song by Babyshambles), you aren't expecting anything less than aesthetic delights. Say you've been in the market for an industrial dental cabinet; Battersea's got it: an outstandingly rare piece filled with drawers, nooks, mirrors, and secret spots. And when you're not sure what to do with your tiny foyer, there's the curiosity case of marching goliath beetles. Each of the design studio's treasures is a somewhat indulgent investment, but one-of-a-kind for sure. Next time you're out antiquing? It's batter up.
