Stylish, timeless furniture is hard to find. Affordable, ethically sourced and made in small batches by fifth-generation craftspeople? Much, much harder.
But interior architect Caroline Olah and husband Andrew are changing that: their furniture brand, Reddie, is well-priced; crafted in Central Java, Indonesia (they both have an Indonesian background), by a dedicated team of craftspeople; and made with either ethically sourced timber from certified government plantations or with offcuts. Plus pieces are customisable and draw from the popular mid-century Danish aesthetic.
“Our target customer is someone who likes good quality and is design-savvy but is also looking for an attainable price point,” Andrew told Broadsheet last year.
But if you wanted to update your furniture game for an even lower price – ahem, for free – this is your chance.
The pair is giving away two of Reddie's perennial bestsellers for two lucky Broadsheet readers. The Jay rattan chair is a Cuban-inspired club dining chair with handwoven rattan and leather cushioning. There are three teak wood finishes to choose from, and seven materials for the cushion (including four fabrics and three leathers).
And then there's the Suzy laptop table, a functional desk that takes up little space, or can simply be used as a cute side table. Choose from two timbers for the top and eight colours for the metal stand.
One winner gets to plonk a customised Jay chair down in their living room or dining area, while another can work from home in style with a bespoke Suzy table.
