Stalking a picture in my inspiration files

It was the chairs, those bus roll upholstered chairs. I'd coveted them for years. There couldn't be two sets. Sorry I've started this story a little far into the timeline. Rewind. Email waiting in my inbox. A little teaser. "Thought I would share this house with you." That's all but like a terrier on a scent down the rabbit hole I went. Scroll, scroll. Bam. It was the chairs, those bus roll upholstered chairs. I'd coveted them for years. Email back. Gush thanks. Confess my thing for those chairs. "Are you the owner or the agent?" And the owner, or should I say soon to be ex-owner, wrote back. Yes the house had been in Living Etc . That's where I had seen the chairs. That's where my love affair with their house began. Strange that a number of years on and I'm talking to an Aussie in London who owns those chairs, who has just sold that house. It's a small world full of wonderful coincidences and serendipity. I just have one more question for the owners. I hadn't remembered when we were emailing, only when I found the house feature online. Do you still have the display case? I've coveted it for years ....

And now the Living Etc pictures by Paul Massey and my own very humble homage to those chairs ...
