Oliver armchair
This chair is exactly what is being described – ode and comfortable even for the modern way of sitting – slumping. The choice of upholstery should be appropriate for Hong Kong’s humid climate for comfort and all to match its airy look even for the heavy stable body looks to float off the floor.
Rabbit napkin
It is a luxury even with a hand-printed not hand-painted rabbit. It is a good show piece for a formal Easter dinner that catsup won’t be set on the table.
Chevy throw
The zip zap strips will keep you awake alright if not the center of attention. For sure, the lambswool will keep the chill out day and night. For the price and design, it will definitely occupy a place fulltime in this winter on my sofa.
Hibiscus table and bench
Matter not how beautiful the hand-paintings are, I will strip them down to let the teak has its day. Unless you want and have the money to ditch, buy the set and refurbish to their original beauty of teak. They may worth more afterwards.
