Sofas

Forgive the lack of posts last week it was a frantic one – two weeks to go until we debut the collection in Paris and still we have no products (its sending me grey). Everything apart from one light arrives end of this week – I HOPE. If not its just me, Maud and a zillion poodles on the stand.

On the weekend I spied (actually my sister and I both) two vintage chesterfields which we both have our eye on. I love buying vintage furniture it tells a story and  its texture (often times beaten up)  adds an interesting note to any  room.

Hopefully with a bit of arm twisting on hubby’s part (not great timing since the show is proving rather costly I might in a day or two have a vintage beaten up old chesterfield).

Do excuse my ramblings and any spelling mistakes have been awake since 3am listening to the world service as sleep is alluding me at the mo
