Just back from Paris on what turned out to be huge buying trip. So many gorgeous finds which I cannot wait to get into the store.Â One of my most favourite pieces was an inflatable chesterfield for garden spaces. Made of PVC with accompanying armchair it comes in a whole host of colours. For the store I have ordered it in deepest darkest charcoal but and how fun is this they also do a mini version for little sprogs â I am getting one for Maud in pink. Ok sheâs not a child but she is the closet thing I have to one â so she is having one.
Not only is it fabulous it blasts all that miserable garden furniture out the window that I have hated for years. Why is garden furniture so dull and bland and boring â well no longer I am so excited about selling this range. Oh its also practical (never I thing I take into consideration) but listen to this it comes with its own pump and inflates from flat to full in 5 mins and is sooo comfortable.
Gardens are going to look truly glamorous â not only have I ordered for the store and Maud but also our garden will be completely transformed with a couple of these hanging out around our outside fireplace.
Amongst many other things for the store also brought an adorable sofa that actually made my sister and I leap with joy when we saw it (we both ordered one for ourselves) and beyond gorgeous knitted bags (again which we both ordered for ourselves). If our other halfâs read this (which they wonât) do not fear â we know that we were supposed to be purely buying for the store BUT we will love these finds until we are 90 so when you break down all those years against the cost â its peanuts!
