well after many years of good service we are about to say bye bye to our beautiful Balzac sofa by Matthew Hilton, because our heart (mine & the misses) has been stollen by another, which will be revealed very soon on www.location78.com. good old Balzac would have some tales to tell, I am sure, it has featured in many shoots both myself and lots of other high profile photographers shooting fashion, interiors & lifestyle photography @ our house, it’s had many famous bottoms on it, and i know of at least one naked lady who was in close contact with it, so if your in the market for a wonderful piece of furniture click here i do hope he goes to a good home to be loved for many more years ………….
Not only has Jo my wife got a lovely pear but, she was given it by another man! (and his missus Lilla) – well they’re friends really, the very entertaining Jonny of Trunk Records, & Lilla of LillaVision, the only stipulation of the gift, was that we could only pass it on, if and when we wanted to, as it has always been passed on and never sold during it’s lifetime. Jonny is one of those rare people in todays world who values objects for what they mean as opposed to what they are worth, if you know what I mean. I’m sure it’s because of this, almost every time we see Jonny someone has given him something really marvellous, just because he’s admired it. There were four of these pictures originally, all different fruits, we have been told the other three were possibly destroyed in a house fire and, there was a rumour the designer may well have been a designer for Habitat, but that’s just a rumour. Anyway we love it, hanging in the hallway and my wife’s lovely pear is much admired, with a great story behind it, and a little reminder that being nice has it’s rewards ……….
