Jet-setting designer James Mansour of New York may live to regret his whistlestop lecture tour of the UK this week. Sponsored by Milliken Carpets, his itinerary features evening presentations on interior design to designers and clients, no doubt making full mention of the benefits of a good deep shag.
There are also lunchtime presentations. And morning briefings. And afternoon receptions. And breakfast meetings. “I have an hour off this evening,” Mansour tells us. Rather than hit the world’s trendiest city, however, he will probably be putting his feet up for 40 winks.
