At home with Sam Cam: Inside the £1.5m Cotswold cottage that's 'rotting, slightly falling down' and full of knick-knacks from mummy’s posh store


Lads. I think we need to set up a just giving page for the Cameron's. Nobody should have to live in such squalid conditions - a rotting house that's falling down and having to rely on hand-me-downs from parents. Broken Britain. They've only got a 40 inch telly, too - I've seen bigger ones on the local council estates so they must be really hard up.

I, too, get irrationally angry when I see threads on an imageboard I have little interest in.

Nice to see that we're getting revenge for all those lads with the hanzi for "black bean sauce" tattooed on their arm.

I'm surprised their sofas are little over a grand. Mine from John Lewis cost more than that.

You spent more than £1,800 on your settee?

What's the merit of spending so much on them?

Surely any property they own immediately increases in value just by them having lived in it, they should just buy a new larger home every month with the money they make off the increased selling price of their previous home. If my calculations are correct (and they rarely aren't) then in 5 years they would own a house of equivalent size to Germany and their annual profit would be the equivalent to the GDP of Micronesia.

No one ever spend that much money on them, all Sofas are constantly 'on sale' the RRP exists purely as a theoretical number to be reduced from.

I don't claim to be a furniture expert, but they're the ones I liked the look of and the most comfortable ones I sat on.

Now that I look at the picture again, it does seem my living room is worth more than Dave's, though the fact the art's prices aren't listed could change that dramatically.

I'm not sure if I'm bragging or just admitting I'm shit with money.

First-rate furniture is spectacularly expensive.

You know that chair off Mastermind? That's an Eames EA 216 Soft Pad Chair, which costs £2,800. A genuine Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair will set you back £5,500, plus another £3,000 for the matching ottoman. A sofa from Cassina, Zanotta or Knoll will cost you somewhere in the £6,000 - £12,000 range. Furnishing a three-bedroom apartment to the highest standards could easily cost in excess of £100,000.

Sometimes you just need to pull back the curtains and declare that the emperor has no clothes on.

Having had 3 cheap office chairs break underneath me, all just outside their guarantee, I disagree.
The chair I've got now cost about £300, and whilst it's built pretty solidly, it still suffers from a range of creaks and clunks.

If you'd ever sat in one, you'd know otherwise. The leather is flawless, whole-grain and buttery soft. The frame is solid aluminium, impeccably chromed and polished. The four-legged base is one complete casting, with no welds or bolts. Vitra offer (and honour) a 30 year warranty, even for commercial use.

£2,800 is an absurdly extravagant sum to pay for a chair, but you can see where every penny is spent.

I own high quality furnishing, but all you did is name brands, and at that brands for people with more money then sense. They aren't worth that amount that is just what people are paying.

If you disagree explain to me why the socks in this shop are 'worth' $95 dollars and the black raincoat is $560
there is no 'hidden quality' to these things. They are just ways of separating the vain and the stupid from their money.

Especially if you've got kids. If you spend a four figure sum on a settee when you've got kids then you're just crying out for them to smear it with Chocolate.

>>58464 They do seem to cater for those with freakishly long arms, though. $1500 for a hoodie seems fair.

Maybe it's a seppos thing. I recently ordered a medium t-shirt from America and it's almost down to my knees. I'm 5'11".

>A chair is a chair.
I thought the same until I inherited the one I'm sitting on. ~£800 height adjustable desk chair. It's been with me over a decade and is just now getting to the point where it need reupholstering. It is lovely and every time I sit in someone else's desk chair I am reminded just how uncomfortable they are by comparison.
