If we were to embark on a mission to captivate, beguile and bewitch the world with beautiful things, we would need a constant stream of ideas for all the shapes and forms, and these would be described as beyond fashion; because they should last.
We would need dazzling materials, taken out of the ground, that have the power to cast a spell. They would be put together with such skill, and in such a way that their most delightful characteristics become impossible to ignore.
There would have to be Craftsmen, with infinite skills, who would understand the eccentricities of so many natural, precious and complex materials and have the will to forge and bend them in endless new directions.
In the end they would be the proud result of the work of so many hands, that we would Hallmark them as proof of their heritage.
Every now and then we’d throw in something daft like the Duck Feet Lamp so we weren’t taking ourselves too seriously. And we would do this in England.
