I’ve been fascinated by interior style and furniture design since I was 13, when my Mum had a vintage shop in Bridgnorth, South Shropshire. I was intrigued by the appeal that furniture from past times, even the recent pass, can have – and the sense it gives of stepping back into another place. My first mid-century buy was a classic Franco Albini rattan lobster pot stool when I was 14 from a private house sale in Patshull.
To wear, I like a large Arran fisherman’s roll top sweater over harem trousers and one of my collection of Converse trainers. I keep my hair long (as seen on TV!) sometimes gathered, sometimes loose, with a beard as the mood takes me, like the dudes in Bastille, my best band. At the festivals, where I can, I quench my thirst and Cerevisaphile’s love of craft beers
Setting up and running Sixth Link has been an answer to my passion for Mid-Century fashion, 60s and 70s style. For me, there’s nothing better than cruising the sales and markets for furniture, lighting and ceramics of that era, and every time I find a special rare piece, put it in the shop and on my social media is like a triumph I never get bored of.
