"First up was glamorous, flame-haired designer Sarah Davenport with her coquettishly-named rocking piano, Chichi. Chichi is a beautiful and whimsical piece which rocks you gently as you tinkle her (I think she’s a girl) silver keys.

I love how the piece pushes the boundaries of traditional design with a subtlety and softness that makes her quirkiness seem graceful and her rebellion romantic. She’s very seductive is that Chichi."
