Introducing my friend Sharon in the first of the series... very brave of her!
1. Where is the item coming from, does it have a story and why do you like it?
I found the antler lamp at an Opp shop while looking for stuff for the kitchen. It was in the middle of a whole heap of other things so I didn't notice it at first. When I saw it though I could not believe that no one had bought it already. I was so afraid that someone would grab it so I stood next to it for 5 minutes maintaining physical contact at all times until finally I could show it to Greg and get his approval. It was the best $55 I have ever spent.
When I got it home I cleaned it and painted it white. It now takes pride in my lounge and everyone comments on it when they see it.
2. What is your profession?
I'm a textile and graphic designer, currently designing babieswear and girlswear.
3.Tell me what piece of furniture you would love to have?
A hanging egg chair.
4. Why would you love to own this item?
Other than the fact that I obviously love the shape of the hanging egg chair, the idea of owning one means that I would have a large enough house with exposed ceiling beams to suspend it from. I can easily imagine myself relaxing in my hanging chair with a good book and some vanilla marshmallows.
