If you’re secretly crying out for a security blanket but adhere to a personal and very rigid interior design aesthetic, the ‘Tie Warmchair’ will provide style as well as physical and psychological comfort.

Designed by Katarina Stavrinou Moleski it’s knitted in organic cotton and wrapped in one piece around a steel frame. There’s something about its snaky appeal that’s a bit cool (or even warm) – though also a bit weird. Plus it’s white – that’s a lot of unravelling to get to the laundry.

It’s been done before. ┬áIn 2013 Polish designer Aga Brzostek created this simply named ‘Autumn/Winter’ blanket chair out of foam shrouded in recycled wool – but let’s face it, she may be carrying a copy of Vogue but it looks a bit like you just wrapped up your granny.

This may be the ultimate ‘furniture as outfit’ chair. The ‘Moody Nest’ designed by Hanna Emelie Ernsting in 2011 is apparently made for ‘stroppy people’, out of a quilted textile shell on a foam base. If there’s someone you’d like to cover up and forget for a while, this may be the ideal buy. Less ‘comfy old dear’, more ‘moody brat’.

Blanket chairs go way back, but they’re normally just that – a chair upholstered in blankets. This classy creation is an icon of its genre: An ‘Eadie’ armchair decked out in traditional Welsh ‘Carthern’ blankets, by designer Donna Wilson (who won The British Design Awards ‘Designer of the Year’ in 2010).
