A deep love of marble is the driving force behind Stone Objects, a firm that specialises in antique marble basins and sinks.

We can thank lockdown for that particular bonus and for the debut of SPIRIT ANIMALS, an online gathering until 10 JANUARY of leading ethnographic dealers who, in normal times (remember those?), would be plying their antique masks and shields in the flesh at the Tribal Art London fair right now (details: tribalartlondon.com). THINGS TO DO On 11 JANUARY, the Milk Tray by now all spent, you’ll be glad of something new to tuck into. As Diana Vreeland herself might have said, why don’t you… make your own CHARLESTON-INSPIRED LAMPSHADE?…
