ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview of Simon Horn, the M.D. and the Proprietor of Simon Horn Furniture. When asked about the how of his venture in the furniture business, Horn said that he had an empty room so he decided to put some furniture in it and that's how it all started. When asked about his biggest regret, Horn said that he repents for not capitalizing more on being one of the first two companies in the British Isles to import and design French furniture in 1981. In reply to another question, he said that if the genuine furniture makers have to survive, there should be better protection from imitators and copyists.
