Dirty Furniture

Dirty Furniture Logo

Dirty Furniture is the independent design magazine that uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with. Conceived as a finite series of six, each issue takes a piece of furniture as its theme. Instead of dismissing furniture as a topic fit only for glossy lifestyle publications, Dirty Furniture uses it as a springboard to explore topics spanning politics, history, technology, psychology, manufacturing…and the plain weird.

Published in London Dirty Furniture features writing by the best international thinkers in contemporary design. Contributors to the series include Alexandra Lange, Formafantasma, Penny Sparke, Liam Young, Shumon Basar, Alice Twemlow, Miguel Arjonas, Jack Self, Manijeh Verghese, Will Wiles, Johanna Agerman Ross, Brian Dillon and more.

In Dirty Furniture’s final issue, Bed, we rip off the covers to reveal how the bed, sleep – or the lack of it – shapes our lives. We sleep with sleep-monitoring devices, reflect on the beds we were born in and consider the screen’s capacity to alleviate insomnia. We wonder how the duvet became a wardrobe staple, talk to sheep and study the architecture of dreams.
