Gracey Bennett, 28, from Gayton reveals how she started a quirky business transforming cast iron baths into sofas, much like the one in the 1961 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
THINGS get very steamy between Pixie Lott and her hunky co-star as they indulge in an intimate bath together in the West End revival of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
When we got home I had made up my mind to try and make one for our garden and started researching how to achieve this. It was then that I came across a photo of Audrey Hepburn lounging in a bath sofa, and, digging further I discovered that a bath sofa was a key feature of her apartment in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I’ve always been a fan of the 1960’s and the bold colours and patterns of this era, so to find out that an early bath sofa was from this time delighted me! They certainly do make a bold statement and are definitely a talking piece.
The strong dollar limited the ability of foreign tourists to spend money here, since their own currencies could be exchanged for fewer dollars. But it also hurt sales at Tiffany's overseas stores, because the local currency collected in those sales was worth less.
