Rutland Chairs

I love to use symmetry to bring a room together and provide a focal point. This can be achieved with accessories, such as lamps and vases, or with furniture like the Rutland Chairs shown here. These elegant matching chairs are a lovely addition to both classic and contemporary rooms, and are very comfortable too!

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

My part of London is buzzing this week as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has descended upon us. I have taken a quick look around and particularly loved The Laurent-Perrier Garden. It unites the classic style of French and English gardens, and gives a wonderful contemporary take on a romantic garden.

The show runs until the 25th May at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea

Cannes Film Festival 2013

I have been looking forward to seeing what the stars choose to wear on the red carpet at Cannes - and so far they have not disappointed! I adore this Dior Couture dress worn by Nicole Kidman yesterday.

The Demi Lune Cabinet

Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, which opens the Cannes Film Festival this week, has really caught my imagination. The glamour of the Roaring Twenties has had so many lasting influences on fashion and design, and items from my own collection are no exception. I particularly think the Demi Lune Cabinet would fit in rather well in Gatsby's home!

Trevilion & Pascal Console Tables

We have some beautiful new furniture arriving in the showroom this month, and these two console tables are already firm favorites with the team. The Trevilion has a metal frame with a leather covered top, while the Pascal has an antiqued gold frame and eel skin top - drop by and take a look if you in the area...

Bank Holiday Weekend - 'Light Show' Exhibition, Southbank Centre

I am always interested in light and the way it can be used to alter the look and feel of a room, so the 'Light Show' exhibition is the perfect indulgence for me this bank holiday weekend.
Catch it at the Hayward Gallery in the Southbank Centre, before it finishes next Monday the 6th of May.
