March’s Lifestyle Collab – Write_to_Manisha

We’re working with Instagrammers who’s accounts showcase their beautiful homes, but are also real homes that are designed for everyday living and still look incredible. Of course they’re also big fans of Funky Chunky Furniture too!

This month, we have been working with write_to_manisha – Manisha is an entrepreneur, consultant and self builder who shares her passion of interior design to her large following on Instagram. Her feed features a beautiful industrial theme with a monochrome colour palette, and we love it!

Manisha used our 9×2 Rustic Floating Shelf in Medium Oak, and styled them with of course monochrome accessories and some unique prints which ties everything together and lifts the space wonderfully. Manisha decided to use her own brackets for this look, however we do offer a wide range of Bracketed Shelves.
