Obi-Wan Kenobi is on my shit list
The chair I bought to complement my shiny new desk was from Habitat. A couple of years ago they approached a number of prominent names and got them to design stuff for their 40th anniversary. Ewan McGregor designed a fold-up director's chair with extra padding that initially went on sale for £150. Well I got one from Habitat's Clearance Department in Wythenshawe for £40. And I was robbed. I've had it for less than a month and it's torn right down the middle. I'm not Jabba the Hutt, but it's collapsed on me. So I've got to dig the receipt out from somewhere. And then find McGregor and slip a red hot light sabre under him as he sits down in his own director's chair.
