Syrie Dining Chair
Monday, 30 November 2009
I've been busy tearing off the bottom of the newly built and painted cabinets in the dining room - this is entirely due to my laziness; basically i have been avoiding bending down to pull open the cupboard doors carefully with my paws and resorting to using the tip off my shoes. Until today that is - issue resolved (& no, I have not overcome my legendary idleness - or terribly bad back). Today i took delivery of
The Helter Handle from Webb
The smaller version on the right but in antique bronze as per the door handle on the left. Nanz eat your heart out, this Scot has an ever growing range of door furniture and I covet the lot.

Is not golden in this instance:
a) I'm flat-out at Olympia (Erotica 09 starts at the weekend for some amusement) selling antiques - http://www.olympia-antiques.co.uk/ - super dull punters & exhibitors.
b) Getting the new website into as many ears and mailboxes as possible - http://www.offthelist.co.uk/ - spread the word; we'll ship to the States too.

Was what leapt to mind on seeing the aforementioned stool - image care of Martin Sutton / Flickr.
The ultimate in Symbolist Architecture, was built in the late 16th century by Thomas Tresham in Rushton, Northamptonshire. A devout Catholic who was imprisoned for his beliefs on his release he built this ode to the Holy Trinity.
I think the stool is very much in the 'Antiquarian' taste of the mid-nineteenth century.
