   I wrote about Vanessa Arbuthnott's success as a designer of modern furnishing fabrics, only a few Blogs back, saying that she was a friend and regular visitor to our T4T textile fairs, so it was particularly good to see her furniture covered in the pretty blonde and rustic linens on the front cover and several pages of Country Life (March 21).   I always knew she would get to the top and here she is with her lovely gentle look!   I show a modern  4 fold screen covered in her oakleaf design with two of my own antique French chairs covered in traditional French 'bouquet' chintzes.  All have been re-covered by my super master upholsterer and are for sale, from £250 each for screen and upright chair, £450 for cosy armchair. contact
