Dispatch from London: Hand Painted Professor Chairs

My good English friend Steve (with whom I almost share a birthday) recently bought one of London's most amazing garden flats (previously owned by one of the editors at British Vogue)...and a dog...and a vintage Porsche. Not a bad life. The flat is filled with mouldings, beautiful wood floors, French doors and barely any hints of modern technology. He's promised to send me updated photos after two chandeliers are installed in the hallway. He won this pair (there's a twin) of hand-painted professor chairs on Ebay this morning. Perfection!
