bottoms' end revisited

As many of you already know, Bottoms' End (the Rapt! HQ) was forced out of action earlier this year, after the 'Great Flood' went through (see post dated 23rd March 2011 ).
Things have been a little slow to get going again, following cleanup, insurance claims etc. but now we're back on track - and the long-anticipated re-building and extension program has finally started - Yippee!
The earthworks were done yesterday (a bund wall and drainage, hopefully to alleviate any future river-incursions). Here are a few pics of Miss Snupeson (QC Officer) examining the standard of work. (She gave it 4.5/5. Phew!)

sexy wallpaper!

I can't resist adding this video link (this time it's not my own creation) having just discovered the work of artist Emma Hack, who works with Florence Broadhurst designs using human (living) skin as her canvas. I think it's quite amazingly beautiful, but what do you think?

If, like me, you love Florence Broadhurst designs, but perhaps don't fancy going quite so far as having her painted on your skin, or think it not such a great idea to have a naked model sashaying around your home, the next best thing might well be a piece of furniture covered in one of her designs. Rapt! now has a trading account with Signature Prints (the only producer of the Florence Broadhurst design collection) and would be delighted to work with you in creating your own piece of sittable art. 
Here's one I prepared earlier:

If you cast your eyes upward to the Page tabs on top of this home page you will see a new Page which I have just added.
It shows products currently for sale - at moment this is limited - but just Watch This Space because this is about to change, as Bottoms' End gets back into full swing shortly.
