brace yourselves... the relatives are coming

Hosting guests can be terrific and terrible in equal measure. At this time of year, there are many people who – not predisposed to the condition – find themselves taking deep breaths in the shed (“I’ll be there in a second, Aunty Deb!”). But, family needs must, so like it or not, if Uncle Nick is staying for three days, you might as well be prepared. I’m the kind of person who likes to pretend my home is a boutique hotel offering a turndown service – complete with chocky on the pillow – but if you’re about to run for the shed, turn to page 82, where we give you a full run-down of how to prepare. You may not want to go the whole hog, but it’ll certainly help you…

CULT CLASSIC ‘CRINOLETTE’ ARMCHAIR BY ILMARI TAPIOVAARA The form: A generous armchair with a dramatic curved back rail supported by numerous fine spindles. What makes it special: A modern variation of the traditional timber stick-back chairs found in England, America and parts of Europe, the Crinolette features a beautiful backrest that rolls over like a soft coat collar.

But while Janetta uses this overarching approach to guide her collections, each piece requires a different tack. “Some wares will be hand-built, some will be thrown and surfaces may be painted, carved or inlaid,” she explains. It’s this attention to detail that makes Janetta’s…
