Update: Wine & design events

So we've had two more events and a good crowd at both. There are no events this coming week as Heather's at the London Wine Fair, but the gallery/shop space is open by appointment. Call me on 15 4024 0251 if you'd like to call by.

Update: Boca chairs

Here's how they turned out. These are just photos of the samples I made for Anthropologie. If they go ahead and order they'll do the cushions in their own fabric, which I think will look fab.

Events: Wine & Design

My good friend, sommelier Heather Willens (with whom I used to share an office) and I are doing a series of wine and design events at my temporary gallery/shop space in Palermo Soho.

Heather talks about Argentine wine, we taste five wines from small production Argentine wineries, and I have put together a collection of design objects including ceramics, handwoven textile rugs and throws, vintage glass, Argentine art, and one-of-a-kind furniture pieces - all of which are for sale.

We're using an empty shop space owned by our good friends Lilian & Alfonso, which is well located, filled with natural light and has a pretty patio garden. I wish I could keep it permanently!
