• It has since been edited (probably before you read it) and it said “staggered” but the pictures are reverse herringbone.

  • Staggered or reverse herringbone layout?

  • It will start out with a few minor tweaks, then some executive will proclaim, “this has been phenomenally popular” after which everything will be up for grabs. So in 24 months’ time, you shall see the LH Group introduce a Business Lite product similar to what EK have done. Th...
