Best Wishes

Wow - I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted anything.   No excuses except that it's been busy and I have been thinking about what I want the blog to be going forward.   I have an idea and will make up my mind before January 1:)

In the meantime, I wish everyone a wonderful time with friends and family.   May you share laughter and way to much good food!   Thank you for all your fabulous support!

Chairs at Victoria and Albert

As part of the London Design Festival, white metal chairs are stacked in a tower, assembled in gallery rooms and clustered on staircases around the V&A museum as part of an installation by Japanese design studio, Nendo.   So simple and beautiful. More pictures on Dezeen.

We have been busy in the shop adding lots of new art and furniture and getting things ordered for the season so I took a little break from blogging.   Here are some pics of some of the things that have meandered into the shop in the past couple of weeks.   I am loving everything.
