Loaf have been busy expanding their seating collection. Among the new additions is the gorgeous Flapjack range - a range that may be small but is perfectly formed. When we say small, that's because it just encompasses an armchair, the... Continue reading

You might recall we feature a bike-related wallpaper by Scion a short time back. Not content with tempting us with that, they also have this Cedar wallpaper on the shelves too. Very different, but just as stylish. Available in three... Continue reading

We do love a crowdfunded project (and have invested now and again in them). We might well invest in the I Ready O too. The idea is simple, to turn your iPhone into a vintage radio. Specifically a radio from... Continue reading

It dates from 1960, but this Dansette Major MkII record player still looks the part. In a red and grey colourway, the player has been stripped and clean inside and out (that is the original covering). The end result isn’t... Continue reading

We didn’t actually know of this place until the newsletter of a well-known travel company dropped into our inbox. Which means we are now aware of the existence of the midcentury-inspired 1950s Hotel La Residence du Vieux Port in Marseille,... Continue reading

We featured some arcade coat hooks a while back, so the idea is nothing new. But we still love the Gaming Joystick Coat Hook. Perhaps it’s because we love the original Atari console, which you might recognise as the inspiration... Continue reading

I’ve lost track of the number of Tunnock’s products we have featured. Everything from cushions to kitchen aprons in fact (and much in-between). But we definitely have not featured these Tunnock’s-inspired storage tins by Gillian Kyle, which are new additions... Continue reading
