Soon my posts are going to seem Retro!

Firstly, sorry to all you regular readers of TFCR out there for my lack of posts last month.

I have recently started a new job working for a stunning contemporary furniture showroom called CHAPLINS in Hatch End, Middlesex. The showroom even has its very own Design Museum so for the first time in my life I actually look forward to getting up in the morning!

CHAPLINS pieces are regularly featured in interior design magazines such as Elle Decoration and Living Etc so I am sure many of you will be familiar with both their name and the brands they stock such as Vitra, Knoll and Kartell.

Anyway, once things have calmed down I hope to get back up to speed so please keep checking back! J x

A Room with a View – no.1


This is the first room in my new ‘A Room with a View’ series. Highlights range from the obvious Eames Lounge Chairs and Arco Flos floor lamp to the beautiful stain glass window in the adjoining room.

The different textures and colours give the room so much depth which make it so inviting and you can’t help but admire the small details like the edging on the archway.

I could get lost in this picture for hours!
