Valentina C

'Armchair with steel rod structure painted in glossy white, red or black, padded polyurethane seat, cover in technical fabric and hand-made flower decoration designed by Maurizio Galante in the same colour of the structure'

I really really really want this chair, although I would not know which colour to go for. They are all so beautiful.

I came across it when it was featured recently on designmilk. It is the Valentina C chair designed by Maurizio Galante for Cerruti Baleri. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. Its almost like a couture dress. Check out his (the designer's) website and you will understand why. Very interesting 'collaboration'. Reinforces my opinion that a lot of design disciplines and skills are interchangeable. What do you think?

Working 5 to 9

If like me you have a passion/hobby/skill that you interested in developing into a business alongside your full time job then check out Enterprise Nation which offers advice and a specifically written Working 5 to 9 guide to assist you along the way.

I am very honoured to be featured in the guide and even did a very short interview on BBC London Radio this morning on the Breakfast Show where Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation was being interviewed by Paul and Jo. My voice sounded weird to me but hey.... it was fun!

Skip to the last ten minutes (except of course you really want to listen to the whole show)
