On this the night of Halloween when the ghosts and ghouls abound and our quiet suburban streets echo to the sounds of “Trick or Treat”…
One chair should take their pride of place at the head of the All Hallows Day feast – Philippe Starck’s iconic Ghost chair.
Now I must confess I don’t live in a decaying castle in Transylvania but there is something about Halloween I love. It may be the excuse to dress as The Count, cloak flowing and fangs chomping or perhaps the opportunity to liberally cover myself in fake blood and wonder around in a zombie-like fashion.
Halloween isn’t complete for me without a carved pumpkin or Jack-O’-Lantern. I love the amazing story about the origins of the lantern. It is said to come from an Irish tale about a master manipulator and general ne’er do well called Jack.
