Our name comes from the 1937 book 'The Importance of Living' - by Chinese philosopher Lin Yutang. His philosophy on friendship and chairs is this...
That the sign of true friendship is to enter someone’s home and make yourself as comfortable as possible... by reclining on armchairs, ‘lolling’ across the furniture and putting your feet up on the coffee table.
In the words of Lin Yutang himself:
“Today any man who calls himself another’s friend must not be afraid to put his legs on top of a desk in his friend’s room [...]
After all, to make oneself at home and look restful, is only to help one’s host or hostess succeed in the difficult art of hospitality.”
And so, inspired by Lin Yutang, we’re selling furniture and homeware (old and new) to help you make your home as welcoming and comfortable as possible. To create a unique space that invites admiration - but also lots of lolling and friendship.
