Hi Ken. If memory serves me correctly, towards the end of last year I emailed some pics of models I have been making of the First-Class Lounge, Smoking Room and Turkish Bath, to Parks Stephenson which I think he then passed onto you to see. The Smoking Room has the red and blue tiles with the burgundy furniture. Before I remade all the furniture into the burgundy colour, I put some of the old green covered furniture into it and it did indeed look dreadful with the red and blue tiles....they didn't go at all....not that this proves anything of course!! Incidentally, several years ago I had the opportunity to study one of the Olympic's Dining saloon chairs up close at an exhibition I was working at and saw the leather had become a bit mottled over time. I wish now I had taken photos of it ...I also wish that I had sat on it....was too afraid it might break or something!
