Some Like It Hot

Hokay. So, I did some small, well, tiny, pieces of upholstery for a frikkin S U P E R Y A C H T. I know. Right? Those clever courtyard neighbours of mine, Bridges & Talbot, were commissioned to trick out a few retro-inspired pieces of seriously upmarket cabinetry for the really rather beautiful vintage yacht Malahne.

This is the yacht:


Really, if I could, I would.

This is the stool:

Perfect for stashing your cocktail mixer, non?

It all rather put me in mind of Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe making out on the yacht in Some Like it Hot. One of my favourite films. Ever. Same period, same style. Different upholsterer. Tickety-Boo. Good enough for some super-yacht oligarch? Yes. Good enough for Marilyn & Tony? I like to think so.
