Chat in a Chair: Juliette Arent
This week we put the ‘Arent’ half of Arent&Pyke in a chair for a chat (you can see the ‘Pyke’ here)! Co-director Juliette is pregnant with twins, soon to become a mumma for the very first time. This chair takes Juliette back to a another very special time when when she gave it to her husband Matthew, as a gift for their first anniversary.
Matthew is a designer of a different kind – as co-director of creative agency Squad Ink. And, he is also a twin. Matthew was at the time becoming acquainted with all things interior design and he said he loved the classic Bentwood No.B9 Le Corbusier chair. Keen to nurture Matthew’s burgeoning interest in interiors, Juliette felt this chair was a fine gift indeed. It is now a much loved piece, and takes pride of place in the recently refurbished Squad Ink studio designed (of course!), by Arent&Pyke alongside the Mondrian Blue No.18 Thonet chairs that surround the meeting table. What a lovely daily reminder of their love…..ahhhhhh.
It is also a very special chair to all of us at In/Out as it was the winner’s prize for our first Chat in a Chair Instagram competition.
