A while back now, just after we’d finished refurbishing our new shop at 14 Lostwithiel Street, Gordon Ramsay was doing some refurbishing of his own, at the former Lloyd’s Bank in the town.
The TV chef had bought the Grade II listed property for a reported £2 million and his interior designer visited Any Old Lights, to pick up one of our vintage Japanese brass passageway lights and a genuine ship’s porthole converted into a mirror.
The work is now finished and you can stay in Trevail House, as it’s named, for up to £7,000 per week.
If that’s a little high for your budget, you can still pick up one of those vintage porthole mirrors from us, for a mere £160 + VAT.
Footnote: According to his interior designer, Gordon visited our shop personally, to check our stock matched his tastes (it did, of course). Someone working in the shop that day – who shall remain nameless – failed to recognise him!
