The Best Things Come in Small Packages

How does one describe the word ‘dinky?’ the dictionary describes it as ‘small and unimportant’. The Thesaurus informs me that suitable replacements would be 'Lilliputian, insignificant, lesser or even minor'.

I say, “Booooooooooo” to that! To me it encapsulates the very essence of the smaller proportioned in a cute and adorable manner and although more petite in stature, lends itself to the importance akin to a full stop at the end of a sentence.

This brings me full circle to the reason for my convoluted ramblings as I tell you all about our lovely c1930’s Art Deco Settee and matching Chairs. They are so perfectly scaled and elegant on the eye. With gently scooped backs and ebonised wood inlaid rails, inset atop classic Deco curved arms. Slim built and sympathetically upholstered in an, ‘of the period’ styled soft grey and black chenille fabric that really suits the era in which the pieces were originally made.

And even more impressive is the fact that they are truly a comfortable experience in which to sit upon! What better way to take you back to the decade that brought us Bakelite, Veneers and sexy Nylon Stockings!
