Black & Spiro Today



I haven't posted any pictures of the shop lately so here is a little corner in the shop today.  The chest of drawers is one of Stuart Membery's which we stock and the antique chair is one of 2 we have covered in our pink embroidered fabric.  There's lots of great things arriving which is always very exciting...especially the the things we bought in New York recently.  That little painting in the picture above {which looks much brighter in real life} came in today and it sold to the first ladies who saw it.  I think if it didn't sell it was on it's way home to my house!!

The embroidered chair is fabulous! I love how the fabric on the arms is different from the chair fabric. Wishing I lived closer to your store!

I'm a sucker for art with lillies in it, no wonder it was snapped up so quickly! You must find it so hard not to take home everything from the shop!

Anna,

I've always LOVED AUSTRALIA and now, that I come here almost everyday I feel closer to your country. It's just amazing how you guys are beautiful, kind, polite and, when it comes about you, really creative too! I think your store is one of the most colorful and happiest I've ever seen and I plan on visiting it some day.

Have a wonderful day, Anna.

If you can't have real flowers, a gorgeous colorful painting is the next best thing. It always enlivens a room.

I love this corner in your shop! The chair is fabulous with the mix of fabrics and the cushion. And the lamp shade is so unexpected, but it all looks so beautiful together. You always inspire me to pull something out of storage and mix with something new.
