A klismos chair is a type of Ancient Greek chair with a curved backrest & out curved legs. In London, early klismos chairs were designed by Thomas Hope. @timjgosling talks us through it. See Gosling’s interpretation -The Lord Leighton Klismos Chair- link in bio.
This wonderful commission is created by flat paintwork on glass, which gives a delicate three dimensional impression, enhanced by the ceramic flowers, held in place using tiny drill holes. Place in front of a mirror to create a magical cacophony of flowers for a dining room.
Where’s Wally? In Monaco our wonderful Gosling designer, @photisphoti couldn’t resist capturing the sleek lines of the Wally Why200. It has a stunning vertical axe bow hull with wrap around main deck dark glass. Complemented by the fabulous curved teak beach club rear. Wow. @wallyyachts_official #wallywhy200 #why200 @monacoyachtshow_official

Bespoke furniture and interior designer Tim Gosling is passionate about craftsmanship, and he is also passionate about the language and stories told by historical homes and their connections.
For the past year Tim has had the word ‘Aquitania’ in his auction alerts on @the_saleroom. Which may sound unusual until you discover that the ocean liner had an identical staircase to the one in the chateau he is restoring in France (check it out at @restorationchateau).
In an extraordinary combination of good fortune and canny antique hunting he discovered this magnificent model of the RMS Aquitania at auction on @the_saleroom a few weeks ago, and now has plans for its permanent residency at the chateau.
Watch the video and read the full story via the link in our bio.
