I’m sure I’m not the only reader to have raised an eyebrow or two over the type of ‘authentic’ product likely to appeal to the ‘market-influencing wealthy’ (News in Depth, DW 9 April).
These products may have a very limited appeal in some niche corner of fashionable London, but this market surely only actually exists in the heads of certain highfalutin design consultancies.
I suggest that these companies try doing some market research, particularly with regard to the hotel interior featured in your article.
At best, this sort of faddy interior will have a shelf life of a couple of years, no more. This room looks like a horror story from the bathrooms of rental properties in the 1980s.
