Putting my money where my mouth is

Without even knowing the man, this is what I would have done for Gerard Butler.

An Arts and Crafts oak centre table, circa 1900, with lotus capped square legs joined by stretchers.

A three seat version of Hickory Chair's Knole Sofa. The"updated finials" would most certainly need to be covered in the Mulberry slubbed velvet.

Mulberry's Foxslub Velvet in Berry, as he seemingly likes red.

A Victorian mahogany long stool, circa 1860, with bobbin-turned legs and stretchers. The squab cushion replaced with a horsehair covered pad seat.

Antique leather covered armchairs.

If only for its relevance, a rare and unusual early 19th Century Scottish laburnum armchair. The drop in seat would be done in a dark green horsehair.

A Gothic Revival oak side table, cica 1880, with pierced frieze, on square legs.

Yes, Yes! Everything you have picked is perfect! Fire the designer, the other one, and hire the new one, you sneaky devil. I'm calling his agent!

Gerard should get to know you. It may be time for a collective good taste intervention amongst us all-I can make a donation, it is that important. pgt

Lovely. And chintz, don't forget the chintz, dying that it is!

Much better. He should have called you (wouldn't that have been heaven?).

Speaking of which, the gothic side table is heaven.

The centre table, long bench and gothic revival side table are three pieces of furniture I could build three rooms around. Its all beautiful but those three particularly spark my imagination.
