"You would think, considering the aesthetic nature of the business we are in, that the desk wouldn't be such a mess. My measuring tape (1) is my most important instrument. The red stickers (2) are for when things are sold. We don't really reserve things. I took a deposit on a wardrobe several months ago and the person still hasn't picked it up. The wind-out handle (3) is for an extending mahogany dining table. The cube (4) is from our makeshift creche - it's really just a little room with some toys in, but it keeps children amused. The catalogue (5) is for our selling exhibition, which runs from Tuesday. I found the penguin (6) this morning when I came in. It belongs to a friend's little boy. I think the hat (7) belongs to him as well."
