The new flat

Leave a comment

Jeffrey and I bought our own flat in Highbury Stadium Square, the old Arsenal ground, just before Christmas last year. Here are a few initial photos of it. Still in progress so more to come…

Note the killer teak items. The nest of tables – g plan and a bargain found in a Barnardo’s charity furniture shop in Hull by my wonderful Daddy for £25 (he had to do them up to get them looking smart and did a cracking job) – and the dining chairs – six Danish 1960s teak chairs found in a vintage furniture shop round the corner on Blackstock Road a bargain at £200 (my Grandma in Denmark has a set just like it but with orange seats).

All the bedroom furniture was made by my Dad and his mate Tim – cabinet makers extraordinaires I think. They’re in the process of making our living room furniture now.  Will post pictures up when we get it. But, in the meantime, if you want anything making – shout. They may be willing.
