You’ve seen the film, now buy the furniture

Have you ever watched a film and paid more attention to the décor than the actors? Would you like to kit out your home in the style of James Bond, Kubrick or Wes Anderson?

Film Furniture

Form co-founder Paula Benson is launching an online resource that will help film fans find the furniture featured in their favourite movies.

The Film and Furniture website will provide features on films, directors and furniture and give guidance on where to find a particular piece featured on the screen.

Benson says she is launching the site as a “magazine-style” resource which she says will develop into a more in-depth resource, with brand tie-ins, pop-up and associated screenings.

Benson says: “As a teenager I used to sketch out my imaginary future house with all its décor and furniture. While I was doing so, my imagination was totally lost in the world I was creating – the look, the sensations and the conversations – like a film set.

“Whenever I watch a film I find myself losing the plot while studying the contents of the set – be it a Knoll Barcelona chair in Tron or a B&B Italia bed in Bond.”

Benson with Form Partner Paul West has created all the Film and Furniture brand and website designs, including laser-etched 3mm polished black acrylic business cards.
