CLARE COULSON Writer Obsessed with magazines as a teenager, Clare Coulson had her first foray into journalism on The Daily Telegraph’s fashion desk, which was, she says, a ‘baptism of fire’.

When I speak to the interior designer Francis Sultana, he has just been making the final edits to his first book, Francis Sultana: Designs & Interiors (Vendome, £50), edited by Bronwyn Cosgrave – and sent his annual Christmas card to print. Each year for the past decade, he has drawn up a fantasy chair for the front of the card. The idea is that they could eventually each become reality in the form of a rather magical chair for children, with all proceeds from sales going to the NSPCC. Francis sat on the board of the charity for eight years and still serves on an advisory level. ‘This year’s chair is inspired by palm trees,’ says Francis. ‘I looked back to my first proper furniture commission – a pair of…
