Are we going to talk about the big white elephant in the room?

Walking  into the Hoxton Hotel this week to meet some friends for drinks, I was greeted and totally distracted by a new addition to the bar – Nathan McKenna’s white elephant.

Elephant Parade Comes to Hoxton

Now, you may just think this is a querky, arty, off-the-wall statement typical of the Hoxton area, but in fact this beautiful beast is part of the Elephant parade taking over London (www.elephantparadelondon.org) . The parade is raising money for endangered Asian elephants and placing 250 of these decorative gems across London.

All this got me thinking about statement pieces. Here are some of my favourites of the moment:
