Design Porn: Made.com

Having recently moved house, I had resigned myself to buying everything from IKEA - and while I adore their affordable furnishings, I didn't want my entire home to look like everyone else's.

That's where Made.com comes in. They work directly with furniture manufacturers to keep costs lower - much lower - than the high street. Fresh new designs at a price that won't make my overdraft explode? YES PLEASE.



This azure blue commode has a distressed finish that would look make my friends assume I'd dropped it down the stairs, but would look stunning in the right home. It's £149 and you'd love it forever.



Love the simplicity of this oak bedside table, and the deep drawer ready to be filled with fripperies. It's £99.



This Bouji chair. Is it...nice? I honestly can't decide. I love the colour contrast, but the castors? The castors are a stumbling block. Hmm. It's £169 as opposed to £799 on the high street, mind.

The downside to all this (apart from the fact that the model has misplaced her clothes in every photo on the website)? Your bargainous designer goods will take anywhere from 10-18 weeks to arrive. That's because they combine all the orders once a week and only manufacture what's been requested. But with a bit of luck you'll have forgotten quite how beautiful your furniture is until it turns up on your doorstep in four months.




And some pieces, like this comfy Jazz Club chair, are available right now if you've got £249 and urgently need somewhere to listen to your Ella Fitzgerald records.

Have a browse, try not to roll your eyes at that bloody naked model, and tell us about your favourites.

  1. Wow! I really wish I had seen this site when I was redecorating my bedroom. Fantastic prices! Thanks for pointing it out to us dozy people who didn't know about it.

    I think I rather like the chair. It looks like it's been reupholstered by an eccentric Great Aunt. Lovely.

  4. I've bought a couple of things from Made.com and believe me the long delivery times are more than worth it. Fantastic products, well made. Hooray!

  5. Brilliant, I'm delighted to hear that. I've ordered a bedside table - with £10 off my first order, I couldn't possibly say no...
