Spotlight on...

London antiques dealer Christopher Hodsoll.

A pair of chinoiserie lacquer cabinets of early 20Th century manufacture with the finest 17Th century doors incorporated

A pair of jasper baluster lamp tables

Known for his idiosyncratic taste - an English country house grandeur as seen through an 18Th century connoisseur's eye. Mr. Hodsoll worked for many years with the late great Geoffrey Bennison. Like his late mentor, Mr. Hodsoll is increasingly turning his hand from simply dealing in antiques to decorating, having recently completed a number of overseas commissions and a substantial London townhouse.

In partnership with Lulu Lytle, Mr. Hodsoll has formed the design company Soane, producing furniture, lighting and accessories with a classical bent, all made to the highest of standards in the United Kingdom.

wait - doesn't he own Hodsall McKenzie the fabric company - or did own it until it was sold to Zimmer? not sure, but I thought that. Do they still run the fabric co?

HOBAC said...

I think so, pretty sure Zimmer is just the distributor.

MM - think it is either a seed or shell collection. He really does have incredible things.
