French Commode, £2,200

Italian designer Franco Albini made this coffee table in the 1950s. It has a four-legged black metal frame, on which the main bamboo structure sits and a glass top, plus an eye-catching cone shape in the centre. Perfect for the corner of a living room, or even as a statement bedside table.

Window Seat, £2,250

Lovely for a hallway or a flat bay window, this rare French art deco window seat is attributed to Paul Follot.
