    Always on the lookout for innovative contemporary furniture, the team at Livingetc adores the latest addition to Nest‘s rota of super stylists from around the globe – French design studio, La Chance.

    Founded in 2011 by architect Louise Breguet and financier Jean-Baptiste Souletie, the company has not only hoovered up the best talent from France’s effervescent new wave of designers, such as Noé Duchaufour Lawrance, but also up-and-coming producers from around Europe, including Swedish collective Note Design Studio.

    Note’s mission in life is – unsurprisingly – to ‘be noticed’ and we certainly can’t ignore its Bolt Stool. Available in this natural beech, or a stained matt-black, the Bolt’s ultra-simple design – four cylinders of solid wood held together by a metal ring – belies its sleek, urbane looks. 41cm high, the Bolt Stool is available at Nest for £392.

    Playing on his love for organic and natural shapes, Duchaufour Lawrance’s new range called Borghese includes this coffee table (again available in either natural, or black-stained oak), £1,394; and the astonishing sofa, priced from £3,140.

    Inspired by the stone pines that dress the Villa Borghese in Rome, the sofa is available in multiple fabric options, which helps explain why La Chance decided on the name Jekyll and Hyde.

    Two distinct palettes have been produced: one to appeal to lovers of bold, primary colours – the Jekyll – and those who prefer more muted tones, the Hyde.

    As for us? Well, Livingetc just couldn’t decide… so we’ll better have a few of both, please. Monstrous!
