Corbusier was Mum’s hero
everything designed to the nth degree
of angle point and chamfer
so I lived in the ultimate
art deco house
furnished in geometric style
even the cups had triangle handles
carpets were interlocking rectangles
orange on a brown background
the radio a veritable Odeon in Bakelite
the whole zany shebang.
Miz Quickly is on an art deco kick, which took me straight to my earliest days in South London.
