Furniture: New Library Chair at Ben Pentreath Ltd. in Bloomsbury

Christine Chang Hanway March 11, 2011

Self-described architectural classicist Ben Pentreath used to sit in his architecture office and dream about opening a shop in the empty storefront across the road. Not one to sit still, he turned his dream into reality and opened his eponymous interiors shop in Bloomsbury–a collector’s delight filled with things he loves. We especially like Pentreath’s new Bloomsbury chair, available in a range of brilliantly colored linens and Josef Frank fabrics.

Watch a video tour of Ben Pentreath narrated by Christine.
