Xanthe Weir

Owner of Lair

Lair is a mid 20th century furniture and lighting specialist in British, Scandinavian, European and American art & design from approximately 1940-1970.

Selling pieces by some of the most respected designers of the twentieth century, Xanthe chooses furniture and lighting based on style and quality.

What were you like at school?

I was a reasonably well behaved type. Liked English and art the best. Hated Latin and my green school uniform. My English teacher inspired me most – she was a wild and creative type with a wicked sense of humour and a flamboyant dress sense. I would like to be part of the Agency as it’s a genius concept to help kids get more out of life and have a bit of fun. Childhood is supposed to be enjoyable and I’d like to see kids have access to a dream and be inspired when other doors may be shutting for them.

If you could create a slogan to live by what would it be?

Everything good that happens to you in life started with the decision to try.

If you could be any flavour of ice cream, what would it be?

I’d be a rhubarb ice cream – love the flavour – very underrated taste.
