And this was JUST the first store. Then the Habitat store happened. Le sigh. This wallet draining CB2 style/affordability minefield is thanks to the UK’s style maven, Jasper Conran. They don’t deliver outside the UK. It’s for your own good.

Cool tables right? They come in lots of colours and are affordable. NOT FOR YOU

All of these have two different coloured sliding backs to suit your mood. Except no green. For envy.
