magic

Visitors to Black & Key’s showroom were treated to close-up magic tricks at Focus/14 courtesy of a top London illusionist and magician. Interior designers were amazed as he made their chosen cards jump into his mouth, turned five pound notes into fifties – and then sadly back again – and discovered rabbits behind their ears. Almost as magical as Black & Key’s bespoke furniture and accessories, handcrafted in England.
