CHRISTOPHER AND SUZANNE SHARP’S DINING ROOM
The Rug Company owners’ airy Ladbroke Grove entertaining space
We group these Moroccan tables together because the shapes are really interesting and they look exotic. Two of them were handed down to Christopher from his grandmother and aunt.
Our friend Jasper de Trafford has a beautiful pottery in Malta called Ceramika Maltija where we got this ceramic of the Queen, made to commemorate her visit to the country.
We’ve had these sofas for many years. We found them in a wonderful second- hand shop on Golborne Road.
We wanted to bring a bit of the outdoors into this room. This Charles Edwards lamp is beautiful and adds a nice garden touch.
We adore dolphins. If we could, we’d have a dolphin fountain in the garden. This pair adds 1960s nostalgia; dolphins were very fashionable then.
