Editor's Top 5 Picks:

1. Alberto Dining Table – Solid Oak (200x100)

Made from Solid American White Oak, considered one of the most coveted materials, this dining table delivers on style and strength. Its hard wearing surface and 8-seat capacity makes it the perfect addition to any busy family home. Looking for something a little longer? No problems, it also comes in a 240x100 size. Given its commercial grade quality, the Alberto Dining Table is designed to last for decades. Love the blonde tones of the solid oak but, you’re after a darker colour scheme for your dining room? Well, you’re in luck as not only does the Alberto Dining Table also come in Solid Walnut, it comes in the 240x100 size so – no more excuses for hosting that amazing dinner party!

2. Astrid Solid Oak Dining Chair - Black Top Grain Leather Seat

You’ve found the perfect table, now it’s time to find the comfortable, stylish and durable chair to match. We couldn’t go past the Astrid Solid Oak Dining Chair with it genuine, top grade leather seat. Again, solid timber construction and clean simplistic design makes this chair an easy one to say yes to. Not entirely convinced the black seat will perfectly match your vision for your style? No problems - this chair like its perfectly paired table, is available in American Walnut and, in over 50 different fabric colours.

3. Franz 2 Seater Sofa - Oak - Dark Grey Fabric

Is it obvious yet that we are in love with Solid American White Oak! The Franz 2 Seater Sofa (Oak/Dark Grey Fabric) has all the characteristics synonymous with Icon By Design’s furniture; high quality, built to last, beautifully handcrafted and incredibly comfortable. With its curvaceous high-back edges, perfectly designed plank arms and comfortable padded seating – this is the ideal choice for a warm and inviting room. We can already visualise ourselves relaxing on it after a delicious Christmas feast with the family! Love this look so much? Well, you’ll be thrilled to know it’s also available in other colours, with a Cinnamon colour stain (instead of Natural Oak) and in a Light Grey and Midnight Blue fabric. Also available in a Curved Armchair, Plank Armchair and Footrest Stool.

4. Franz Plank Armchair - Oak with Cinnamon Stain - Midnight Blue Fabric

The Franz Armchair in Oak with the warming cinnamon stain and stunning midnight blue fabric really is a striking piece of furniture. We love its bold, strong, angular lines that are softened by the beautifully padded upholstered cushions. We could see this looking effortlessly chic as a pair in a contemporary sitting room or, on its own in a private reading nook with a beautiful floor lamp and a mohair rug draped over its back. As with the Franz 2 Seater Sofa, the Franz Plank Armchair is available in other colours, Natural Oak (instead of a Cinnamon colour stain) and in a Dark Grey and Light Grey fabric and is perfectly matched with the Curved Armchair and Footrest Stool.

5. Magnus Rectangular Coffee Table Solid Oak - 110x70x45cm

If you’re after a coffee table to complete your sitting room or living room look, the Solid American White Oak Magnus Rectangular Coffee Table is a wonderful choice. We love how this coffee table doesn’t conceal the top of the legs and in fact –makes them the hero feature of the design. For this reason, a piece like this can easily be a focal point to any interior. The coffee table is also available in other shapes such as oval and multiple sizes. The Magnus range is one of Icon By Design’s most popular and includes other Coffee Tables, Dining Tables, Bedside Tables, Cabinets and convenient and stylish Storage solutions.
