I demand that you feel sorry for me! Knowing that I had a new range of white items coming in tomorrow, I went into work today (yes a Sunday!) to finish the release of three new Kudos darkwood designs that arrived with us a week ago. Blimey, that is dedication for you.
So, I thought that you might like a sneaky preview of the items that should be ready to start selling from tomorrow onwards (they haven't even been launched on the website yet):
1. Kudos Small Coffee Table
2. Kudos Large Coffee Table
3. Kudos Corner Television Cabinet
What do you think of the designs? You might also notice that the Kudos range is no longer made from Sheesham wood. We moved production from India to China to achieve more consistent quality. One other thing (sorry I will stop banging on in a minute!), I noticed that when I was editing the images on Juans computer in work today, they looked really quite dark (almost too dark). Are you experiencing the same problem on your screen by any chance? If you are, it means that my laptop screen settings are probably too bright - that's the computer I do all the image editing on.
Anyway, enough of work before I get on a roll! I have got a new hobby, and it is re-introducing 'retro' things (words, food, clothes etc). Hence the reason I call Juan a 'young scamp'. I was having a laugh about this today with a friend who lives in Laguna Beach, California (flash git), and I told him that I have come up with the best 'retro menu' ever:
Starter: a fan of melon
Main: Surf and turf OR gammon, egg and chips (we had a bit of a scrap over that one)
Dessert: Black forest gateaux
I defied him to find anything more retro than that, and would you BELIEEVVVVVE it, my Skpe messenger has just gone 'schwwwwoop' (the sound Skype makes when you are sent a picture).
At first, I was quietly confident that I had won the 'retro' contest, but then I opened this picture.
Not only did he quote 'Blue Nun' wine as his entry for the retro-competition, but he managed to find an empty bottle of it in his apartment! Just to add insult to injury, he also set the bottle against a beautiful Californian back-drop to ensure it's 'blueness' was emphasised.
I feel that I may now be on a backfoot in the retro-competition, so I implore you for your help in discovering something MORE retro than Blue Nun! I know you can do it!
