10 Last Minute Xmas Presents

If you are a last minute person like me, who realised just now that Christmas is just a couple of days away, worries not, I have put together a list of last-minute presents idea for design lovers like me.

Living in a big city like London is great, but shopping in the city centre can be a bit overwhelming (especially when you’re are 9 months preggy) so my solution is always to look at online sites…and even if they’ll arrive a bit late, I’m sure that who’ll receive will appreciate it.

So here we are here’s my 10 selection from LOVEtheSIGN (and a special discount code included below…).

Top 10 (affordable) Lounge Chairs

I’ve been on the hunt for a Lounge Chair for a while, I quite like the fact that our living space is open and not cluttered, but at the same time, I’d  love to have a little reading corner, where you can curl up and get cozy while watching some movies…

I quickly realized that beautiful armchairs are pretty expensive – sigh  –  so I started making a short list of my favorite ones:
