I love what my enormously talented and creative friend Vanessa Gebbie has done! She asked if it would be okay to use my new collection, My Mother Was An Upright Piano: Fictions, as the inspiration, asking anyone who followed her on Twitter this question: If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be? And she got the most marvellous responses from far and wide which she has now compiled into a fantastic blog post with many pictures! So, what would I be? A chaise longue, I think, slightly decadent and not terribly useful but with a hint of glamour!
