Most of the things in my home were commissioned and I love being involved in the process. Sometimes it doesn’t come out as expected, but for me, it’s part of the fun and excitement. And contrary to what you might think, no more expensive.
Some of my most inspiring experiences were working with graduates of colleges in China, Israel and the Netherlands. I selected the work which came to Sotheby’s in London. Different cultures and different approaches. Fascinating.
My advice to customers was always ‘If you love it and you can afford it, you should buy it. I have no regrets about what I have bought but plenty of regrets about what I didn’t buy.
Future Edit sums this up. Some interesting and surprising work in spite of it being a challenging and tough year.
And yes, I was an early bird and have been shopping and delighted with my purchases - I can’t wait to get them home.
