We’re very excited to report that Purling London will appear in British Airways High Life Magazine! The wonderful photography accompanies a feature promoting Amazon Prime’s new upcoming series ‘Good Omens’, which is an adaptation of the cult novel by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman (Trailer Below). The show centres around Sheen & Tennant’s relationship as an angel and demon on earth, teaming up to avoid Armageddon. Their adversarial yet collaborative journey is actually not too dissimilar from a Chess match; both sides working within the shared framework of the game to achieve opposing outcomes.

The article features co-stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen playing on our beautiful Art Chess set by Sophie Matisse  and was shot on location at the illustrious Beekman Hotel in New York. This unique set which includes palladium leaf is inspired by English playwright Noël Coward and the tiling design of his Firefly Estate in Jamaica.
