Paul Smith is best known as a fashion designer,
but he has also designed furniture and
upholstery textiles

Paul smith's boutiques have always been
an important aspect of his work.
They reflect his character and design;
an unmistakable British look enhanced by an unexpected twist.
. Interesting combinations
By his own words:
"When it comes to the lounge at Stockholm Furniture Fair,
I think it's important that it doesn't just have a minimlistic elegance,
because we've seen that plenty of times before.
I want to spread an interesting, optimistic atmosphere
that is inspring,
that shows something other than pure elegance."
