One Must Not Covet Thy Neighbour’s Ass, Wife, Or Sideboard

I was meandering around a strangely old fashioned furniture store  – I’d been there several times over the years.  Usually to view their  end of year clear out sale.  I was very lucky to have gone in just as they unlocked the door one particular 02 January.  Anyway, I was happily mooching about when my eyes lit upon the most gorgeous sideboard.  it was sat in an alcove, no labels or price board on show.  I knew immediatey this was from the design sold by a particularly helpful but expensive department store and when it came out about 6 years ago, I lusted after it for months until finally having to concede defeat – the sheer cost would have bankrupted me.

But here is was in an end of lines, end of season sale!  The speed with which I purchased this piece of modern furniture cannot be adeuately described.  It is still stunning and I still love it, years later!
