Sir Peter Osborne told the Financial Times' How To Spend It magazine [Part 2] that he wants to buy a £19,000 desk.
The Baronet, who co-founded prestigious wallpaper and fabric firm Osborne & Little, also discussed his love of exclusive holiday destination Mustique and Savile Row suits.
The comments emerged with the Chancellor struggling to shrug off Labour criticism for cutting the 50p top tax rate for high earners.
Sir Peter said one of his favourite recent purchases was a Tahiti lamp by Italian designer Ettore Sottsass, which he got from auction house Christie's.
"The thing I'm eyeing next is a wonderful Fornasetti Architettura Trumeau desk at Themes & Variations," he added. The magazine lists the price of the item as "from £19,000". » | Saturday, April 21, 2012
