For Libby Walsh, the owner of Prop Hire Online, keeping precious pieces on the website and out of her own home is a definite challenge. “I'm not going to lie... there have been one or two pieces that I purchased for the business that have never quite made it onto the website,” she tells me - and I don’t blame her! The site is not only the go-to space for stylists and event organisers in need of amazing props, but they sell some of the pieces to the general public too (I am dying!).
I’m not afraid to admit that I love French antiques. There is something so wonderfully character-filled about these old finds that just captures my interest. I love a piece with a sense of story too, so when I cast my eyes upon the Contemporary Collection of furniture available at The Country Trader in Waterloo, I had to get the swoon police on speed dial.
