Cheers all. The only thing I like less than these is those canvases or prints that people stick up with a list of all their happy memories like this. I see it a lot in my job. Maybe a report to grumpy thread.

Looking to sell a few pieces and wondered if anyone would be interested here? I'm open to sensible offers (PM me).

Vitra Eames Chrome Wire Chair w/ Black Leather Seat - purchased from a Vitra sample sale about 4 years ago at their Clerkenwell store. I can't remember the price - I thought around £400 and was down from 6, but just googled and see new they're 4. It's in immaculate condition.

Anglepoise + Paul Smith Type 75 Edition One Desk Lamp w/ original box - purchased from Heal's on Tottenham Court Road and only ever displayed on top of an Eames side table in my bedroom. No marks and in great condition and original bulb which still works.

Obviously happy to take and send over more pics to interested buyers.

Collection in East London would be preferable.

Anyone on here had any experience buying and renovating a Grade II listed house? Trying to work out how difficult it is to get planning permission and if its worth the hassle?

No, this past week with the bifolds and lantern has been mad hot, moved to front reception as it’s much cooler. I figure there are only a few days a year where it’s an issue. Bought a garden pool for the kids to compensate (yes chav) but best £120 or whatever I’ve spent all year ans it’s been hammered.

Yes, no issues particularly. Can vary from conservation officer though, pot luck if they are sensible or not. No issues from the council for permission to knock through kitchen/dining room although it wasn't an 'original' wall so to speak. It's worth the hassle, can't beat character and the quirks.

Anyone own or have ever sat in a Wishbone/Wegner chair and can comment on how comfortable they are?

I have 6 of them (CH24) - very comfortable and stable - you can also add a leather cushion for extra comfort.

Impressive - what are the dimensions for the extension if you don’t mind me asking? I’m looking at a 10 x 4m open-plan rear extension to add new kitchen, dining and hopefully a little sitting area but unsure whether it will feel a bit cramped. Yours looks the right size, but assume is bigger?

Any recommendations for where to buy a sofa that is available without a lead time? One I had my eye on is out of stock for the foreseeable future. Brands like Swyft and Snug have mixed reviews, or seem to have shills on forums claiming how brilliant they are.

Ours is 9m x 3m so you’ll be fine.

Charlotte Perriand exhibition at the design museum is well worth a look.

Also a free Margaret Calvert exhibition upstairs for the graphic design headz.
