We Love Chairs!

Here at Vavoom Emporium we absolutely love Chairs and whether they be Velvet Covered Dining Chairs, Industrial Style Stools, Aged Leather Armchairs or Leather Ottomans, White Linen Chairs or Moroccan Pouffes they are all fabulous and we just had to blog about them!

Play up contrast in your dining room with different monochromatic styles to enhance a modern style. The juxtaposition of the white and black makes for a striking aesthetic and opens up any area. Feel free to do this to the extent of your choice, if you prefer to be a little more subtle, try introducing neutral tones which will soften the harshness of the contrasting black and white.

Our gorgeous Ebony Glass Dining Table features a black glass table top with concave style legs and a subtle reflective finish. The perfect standout piece for any dining room, the reflective surface of our Ebony Glass Dining Table creates the picture of chic and style.

  • Meridian chair Black - A gorgeous velvet covered chair with a matte silver nailhead stud trim and dark chocolate finished wooden legs. Sleek and chic, the perfect piece to add subtle elegance and style.
  • Tresor Dining Chair - The intriguing curved leg design and round press-studded backhead suggest a classic style, while the bright white upholstery and metal studded edging lean modern. A transitional piece that is versatile enough to fit many different styles and aesthetics.
  • Isabella Carver Chair Black - Upholstered in luxurious black velvet fabric and studded with a silver trim, the Isabella is an incredible chair. The black birch timber frame rounds off the look, giving you a perfect black piece to contrast against your choice of white.
Here at Vavoom, we love Industrial furniture! Recently we've been embracing the softer side of Industrial, focusing on mixing and matching different pieces and incorporating Industrial furniture in unexpected ways.
Our Industrial Tube Work Chair is a beautiful piece that takes a softer approach to the Industrial style. While retaining the hard appearing material and edge, our Industrial Tube Chair also introduces a softer attitude through the thinner, delicate style.
Another option is our Industrial Stool Adjustable. With a timber seat made from recycled timber doors and sturdy iron base, this piece has a slightly stronger presence than our Industrial Tube Work Chair. Mix and match with the two of them around your table, adding other chairs from different styles to create an eclectic look.
When introducing leather pieces into a room, take into consideration the colour, style and texture you'd prefer. Aged leather or matte is preferable over patent or glossed as they are less 'fashionable' and more stylish, but if patent or glossed is your preference then, by all means, go with what you love. Black leather will retain a high juxtaposition, but by indroducing tan and brown tones you can create a softer contrast. Leather is timeless and the perfect way to add elegance and luxury to any area.
Our Mortimer Leather Armchair is a best-selling piece that has proven its ageless style. The metal studding down the front of each arm brings a touch of modern to this beautiful classic piece while the wheeled front feet make it practical and convenient. The Mortimer is made with top grain Italian Leather which is hand aged after being upholstered. This process is very time consuming and has the effect of natural ageing. Therefore, each piece is unique in its own way and a beautiful accompaniment to any home.

  • Browning Leather Armchair - Our Browning Leather Armchair is made from top grain Italian hand aged leather, inspired by classic original leather pieces. A statement armchair that will stand out wherever you'd like it to be, after sitting in it once you'll completely appreciate the sophistication it will bring to your home.
  • Harrington Leather Armchair - Also made from top grain Italian hand aged leather, the Harrington is the trendier younger sibling of the Browning. Just as plush and sophisticated, with a little edge from the metal studded arms.
  • Leather Armchair - Currently reduced to clear! Beautiful in rich brown leather tones with solid timber legs, our Leather Armchair is a classic piece for those who crave refinement and simplicity.
Leather Paris Ottoman - Beautifully crafted in stunning brown leather with a French style inscription, this leather ottoman is large enough to cater for your couch or can accompany any armchair nicely. Currently reduced to clear!
Our Derringer Leather Chair is a versatile piece that would look incredible in multiples to accompany a dining table or desk, or as a singluar piece in a bedroom or living area.
White and linen chairs bring to mind a clean open space with a beachy, relaxed vibe. Bring this in your household by pairing it with more white (in either the same tone or highly contrasting) or juxtapose it with black shades or pops of colour. If you do choose to go all white,
contrasting shapes, styles and textures to bring an extra dimension and intrigue to the room.
The below chairs all bring a clean and chic vibe to any room and would look incredible paired with other white or linen pieces, or with black or colour depending on your personal preference.
(from left to right)
  • Nevone Linen Chair - A gorgeous linen covered chair with matte silver stud detailing and dark chocolate finished wooden legs. A versatile piece that would work beautifully as a dining chair or an occasional chair.
  • Percival Chair - A beautiful occasional chair that makes for an incredible statement piece. Upholstered in quality linen fabric, our Percival Chair would look stunning in the bedroom or loungeroom.
  • Meridian Chair Linen- Made from the same lovely linen as our Nevone Linen Chair, the Meridian also features matte silver stud detailing and dark chocolate finished wooden legs. The perfect dining chair, the Meridian is an amazingly comfortable and versatile piece.
Pair linen occasional chairs or armchairs with our beautiful Orson Ottoman Natural Linen to complete the room. The press studded design is classic and stylish while the elegantly designed legs will draw attention.
Inject colour and fun into your room by replacing chairs around a table with our gorgeous Moroccan Pouffes! Child friendly, space saving and incredibly versatile, our Moroccan Pouffes are a great way to change things up in your abode. Extremely comfortable, our Moroccan Pouffes would also make a great addition to any bedroom or as a pouffe for your favourite armchair!

Desk Areas

A place for you to unwind and relax, or buckle down and get some hard work done - the desk area is a crucial part of any abode. A great place to express your personality, the desk area can also easily become cluttered and disorganized...not a very great environment to work hard in!
In this blog post, we're going to share some tips with you about expressing yourself through your desk area and reducing the clutter, while introducing you to a few different desk style options.

A great idea to think about when decorating around your desk is applying wallpaper behind the area. Go for something simple, not too bold because it will distract you from your work, but inspiring enough to make you feel happy and relaxed in that area.

Try to keep your area free from unnecessary clutter, consider purchasing or creating your own storage system nearby so that all your bits and pieces are safe and out of your way.

 For the modern lover in all (*most*) of us, our Georgia Mirrored Dresser is the perfect picture of elegance! Featuring three roomy drawers to store any necessities (pens, spare paper, staplers...lipstick...), the Georgia Mirrored Dresser contrasts the glam factor of the beveled mirrored front and top with the sleek and modern black legs and edging.

Pop a mirror (click here to view our range of mirrors) behind it and the Georgia Mirrored Dresser transforms into a stunning vanity! Use it as a console, dresser, or of course - desk. The Georgia truly is a versatile piece!

If you really want to be unique, add a spark of colour to your Georgia Mirrored Dresser with a colourful desk lamp or bright vase filled with fresh flowers.

Click on Georgia Mirrored Dresser to be taken directly to its location on our website.

Two great colourful lamp options include our cool Cobra Table Lamp (above) and our new Otto Table Lamp (below)! Both are available in bright, fun and on-trend colours that are sure to grab attention.

Click on either Cobra Table Lamp or Otto Table Lamp to be taken directly to their separate locations on our website.


A great vase option is our Recycled Spanish Glass Vase in Fuchsia (above)! Contrast the gorgeous fuchsia shade with a yellow, white or blue floral arrangement or get matchy with violets - either way this vase is a stunning addition to any desk area. Our Recycled Spanish Glass Vase is also available in Orange.

Click on Recycled Spanish Glass Vase in Fuchsia to be taken directly to its location on our website.
 If you're looking for simple and practical, then you can't go past our Teak Office Desk. Made from 100% recycled teak and fitted with stainless steel legs, our Teak Office Desk exudes a simplicity that is simultaneously calming and invigorating. The perfect place to unwind or work hard, you can design your own space around the Teak Office Desk and be ensured that it will not overpower the area.

The ideal piece for someone looking to feel zen and at peace, or on the contrast, the artist who wants to create an area to reflect their own style and passion and not wanting furniture to clash with that expression.

Click on Teak Office Desk to be taken directly to its location on our website.

Reflect your personality in your desk area by adding smaller bits and pieces that will not clutter the area, but will either serve a purpose or add charm. Mementos from holidays (seashells, etc), a family photo (or a photo of a loved one, pet or even a relaxing landscape), stationary organisers and lamps can all dress up the desk area without overpowering it.

Another great idea is to add a candle to your desk. When choosing, think of the design of the candle holder - you don't want anything to bright as it will cause distraction while you are working. Try to find simple glass, white or black candle holders. Think of what kind of scents you like and consider when you will be burning your candle.

You may wish to purchase two separate candles: one with a relaxing scent to burn while you're unwinding, and another with a less intense scent burn when you're working - although that is entirely up to each individual.

 Our Candle in Hello Hamptons has an incredible scent that is universally appealing and versatile enough to work for times when you are relaxing or working. The classic scent of freesia blooms is calming and will add an aura of tranquility to your room, while the sweet pineapple, cranberries and peaches contrast and evoke, allowing you to focus and concentrate when necessary.

Made in Australia, our Candle in Hello Hamptons is created from a soy blend, and is beautifully packaged in a stylish glass jar that you can then reuse to store your paperclips or bits and pieces on your desk!

Click on Candle in Hello Hamptons to be taken directly to its location on our website.

Gorgeous, understated and practical are three words that perfectly define our Tresor Console! This two drawer desk is the ideal piece for anyone craving simplicity, or someone who does not have a lot of area to work with. The antique inspired design of the legs exudes French country appeal, while the simplicity of the two drawer design will satisfy modern lovers.

Place our Tresor Console in front of a large window for an instantly brighter, more stylish room. Continue the elegant appeal by adding white accessories to the desk, or contrast with monochromatic or colourful pieces. Our Tresor Console also makes an incredible console, small dresser or vanity.

Love the look of a mirrored desk but would prefer something more antique and glamorous than more modern pieces such as our Georgia Mirrored Dresser? Then our Antique Mirror Dresser is for you! The ultimate of luxury and glam, our Antique Mirror Dresser is fitted with stunning designed handles on each of the five spacious drawers. With antique pewter edging and legs, our Antique Mirror Dresser is almost entirely mirrored to reflect the beauty of your home.

A perfect desk, our Antique Mirror Dresser also makes for an incredible dresser, vanity, console or storage piece for your bits and pieces (make-up, etc).

Click on Antique Mirror Dresser to be taken directly to its location on our website.

If using as a console, a beautiful large centered floral arrangement looks incredible on the Antique Mirror Dresser, if using as a desk - try for a slightly smaller arrangement and place it on either of the far corners to draw attention without taking up too much space.

We love the arrangement of the above desk! The perfect contrast between monochromatic and colour pieces! Little touches such as the clock screensaver, pink floral arrangement (that enhances the pink in the artwork) and the use of a mug with a personal attachment (the letter 'J' for the persons name) as a stationary holder really give the desk area personality and style.

Create an industrial vibe with our or our Bird Leg Console (above) or our Desk Stamp Leg - Hardwood (below)!

Both desk options are ideal for a more open area, although the Bird Leg Console particularly can be easily adapted to a smaller space. Add more industrial inspired pieces to achieve the perfect mood, or contrast with different items to show your personality.

Click on Bird Leg Console or Desk Stamp Leg - Hardwood to be taken directly to their separate locations on our website.

The ultimate of simplicity is our Curved Leg Console! With this piece you really are free to express your own personality and style as much or little as desired. The attractive curved legs contrasted by a flat top serves as an eye-catching, modern attraction in your home that can easily be adapted to any area. Not only a fantastic desk, our Curved Leg Console also makes for an amazing console or dressing table.

Click on Curved Leg Console to be taken directly to its location on our website.

Add some intrigue to your Curved Leg Console with a statement piece such as our Nixon Clock (Large)! A practical and stylish decorator piece, our Nixon Clock (Large) adds the perfect touch of glamour and elegance to a simpler desk. Also available in a medium size, our Nixon Clock (Large) also makes an incredible complementing piece to any mirrored desk!

Click on Nixon Clock (Large) to be taken directly to its location on our website.

The important thing to consider when choosing a desk and creating your desk area is how you want to reflect your personality and whether you want to choose practicality over style or vice versa.
Try to think of creative and unique ways to express yourself through decorator pieces on your desk, but keep in mind not to over clutter the area or else you'll find it difficult to get any work done!

We recommend having a browse through Pinterest or Tumblr to get an idea of different styles and ways to express yourself.

Bentwood Chairs

 Here at Vavoom, we love our Bentwood Chairs!

We sell the real deal, no cheap replicas or 'inspired' pieces in sight.

Beautifully crafted by the Thonet Brothers in Poland, the Bentwood Chair has also been known as the No. 14 or the bistro chair, and is the most famous chair created by the Thonet chair company.

Designed by Michael Thonet and introduced in 1859, these stunning chairs are made using a unique steam-bending technology, known as bentwood, that required years to perfect. Some 50 million Bentwood's were sold between 1859 and 1930, and millions more have been sold since.

The Bentwood is a classic piece that is simultaneously modern and practical. Used in cafes, restaurants and homes worldwide for over a century, they are now available in a gorgeous array of different colours and finishes to suit your own personal taste and aesthetic.

Own a piece of history by adding a Bentwood into your own home!

Here at Vavoom, we carry the Bentwood in the following colours and finishes:

As well as - Walnut, Light Wenge, Raw & Natural (not pictured).

We also offer an embossed seat which is available in the colour range of Walnut, Light Wenge, Raw & Natural. (Embossed seat pictured below):

The Bentwood is loved and praised by many designers and architects and would make a great addition to your home or business.
As Le Corbusier (architect, designer, urbanist and writer, famous for being one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture) said of the Bentwoods: "Never was a better and more elegant design and a more precisely crafted and practical item created."
