AFTER A TRIP TO THE US IT'S MANDATORY YOU RETURN with either a bulging
suitcase or a thicker waistband..fortunately the only thing I split was the wheel on my suitcase, but we hung in there.
Most people generally research and plan a trip to the States very carefully and I would strongly advise those people to never, ever travel with me. It was a very proud moment when I sent my Aunt a postcard informing her, that despite my best efforts we all arrived safely in LA on precisely the same flight. My only research prior to the trip was the exact locations of Anthropologie, Pottery Barn and General Patons military tactics for the successful negotiation of Disneyland.
Anthropologie was high on my list of must sees..creative, whimsical and just too many styling ideas for me to process. The painted chairs above were a particular favourite. A series of landscape canvases and tapestries were used to decorate retro dining chairs- glued and, in some cases nailed onto the veneer.
Start scouting for old chairs now and dig out those 1990 tapestry cushion covers!
