Vespa lifestyle






Selling modern furniture as I do for a living (my film photography being a side passion/pursuit), I'm lucky in that we have a classic vespa in the showroom.

This Italian tricolore liveried 150 Sprint is not my taste but it's still nice seeing it on the shop floor. My boss fell for it when he was visiting Goodwood Revival a few years back and bought it off a classic scooter dealer who had a stall there. I can see why he went for it; considering the large majority of modern furniture we supply comes from Italy, including the red 'Serie Up' chair in the foreground, produced by B&B Italia and originally designed in 1969 by Italian designer, Gaetano Pesce.

The Vespa Sprint has sat dormant for a few years now and is leaking oil on the shop floor but won't take much to get it going again. Maybe I should talk the boss into letting me have it as a 'bonus', so I can get it repainted in it's original and far more tasteful silver colour...
