We've had John Richardson (the world's leading Picasso expert and friend of Francis Bacon) admire this sofa by Helena Lynch; we've had Sir Nicholas Serota (ex-director of Tate and new director of Arts Council England) buying Karen Downing's ceramics; and Richard Long buying a circular table by Tim Plunkett while leaving his signature in our book.
There are many perks of being based at @houghton_hall with #norfolkbydesign this summer. The house and grounds are spectacular and Richard Long has created some truly magical artworks. There are definitely worse places to work.
