Sustainability is all about durability, and that means shelling out to buy the very best that we can afford. It means that when we buy something new, we buy it not just for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren, and their children too.
The Gaze Burvill stand at Chelsea this year was an utter treat, and richly deserved its reward as best trade stand of the show. Butter Wakefield is a master of restrained but ebullient design; the sort of spaces that pull you in with their friendly, come-hither, arms-open-wide accessibility, and at the same time wow you because, well, they are just so damn chic.
Andrew and I finally persuaded Butter to come and give us the benefit of her wisdom and experience on the podcast and it's up now for you to listen to - just click here.
