A Tulip isn't just for Christmas...


...It's here at last! Our Christmas present to each other is now in place, although David has said that it's really more for me than it is for him which is fine by me because it means it's all mine. We had delays picking it up because of the snowfall earlier this month, it was then not in the warehouse where it was supposed to be and the van of the friend who was going to pick it up had to have the gearbox replaced. I was chomping at the bit for it's eventual arrival.

It took three of us to move the marble table top to the third floor. Although I had carefully measured the flights of stairs and landings it was still tricky getting all twenty stone of it around the corners! There was a lot of huffing and puffing and it took us the best part of an hour to finally reach the top. It also has to be moved vertically as much as possible which added yet more complications.

The best part of all this is that I managed to get the table for half price! I won't go into details but lets just say my thanks go out to a very helpful woman who made it possible.

Even at half price it was still a lot of money and we have never spent so much money on each other for Christmas before and probably never will again. Was it worth it? Oh yes! It is absolutely beautiful and everything you expect or want it to be.

Next thing...the chairs! Unfortunately the Series 7's do not go. The colours are wrong but more importantly they do not sit under the table very well because of the width of the legs but new ones (unless I come across an absolute bargain!) will have to wait...we are spent out!

Love the table and your house looks great. I got four original Arkana tulip chairs off ebay for £200.
