A few years back I was involved in a loft installation, for which I’d designed and manufactured the curtains. As the day progressed, and elevator after elevator of furnishings arrived, things began to take shape nicely. I’m going to leave out all the names, but suffice it to say this was a well-known designer at a swanky Soho address. In the end, just about everything looked great, except for the plastic wire coming from 2 tripod floor lamps (incidentally from an equally swanky, equally well-known Italian fashion designers collection of home furnishings). I may be knit-picking here, but as they say, the devil is in the details.
