On Design: Wish List

Country & Town House London, April 2015

Wish List: Ten industry insiders open their address books to tell us what they'd really love to get for their own homes this spring, featuring Suzanne Lovell.

SUZANNE LOVELL, Interior Designer

‘My most recent purchase was a pair of 1980s black bentwood, laminate Chippendale chairs designed by Robert Venturi for Knoll from Wright Auction House in Chicago. They are significant to me as they are a bridge between my family’s background in antiques and the decorative arts, and my modernist architectural education. Next on my list is a spectacular curved desk from the Hermès Métiers collection in a dark wood finish that is partially covered with deep red leather. It’s so graceful that if you owned it, you couldn’t help but do good work. This spring, I dream of purchasing a piece of street art by Banksy. I fell in love with his work when I saw it at the Lamberty Gallery on Pimlico Road. On the same street, Soane is one of my go-to interiors showrooms. Their glass tea cart, the Nureyev Trolley, can be made much larger than most and is so well crafted.’
