When it comes to feature lighting, you really can’t beat this stunning Rio multi-arm midcentury-style chandelier by Jonathan Adler. Frustratingly, this is only in the US version of the Jonathan Adler shop right now, which might add to the cost... Continue reading

Love these vintage-style painted tins by Berylune. We say vintage-style because as far as we can see, these are reproduction designs based on classic cans, but with enough style and character to really look the part on display, whether that’s... Continue reading

We do like the mix of style and simplicity in this Emilio seating range at Sabichi. It’s a retro design, very much inspired by the 1950s and early ‘60s, but without being too OTT. The result is a stylish range... Continue reading

If I’m honest, the idea of a giant biscuit would be my dream Christmas gift. But if this Custard Cream rug by Dorothy turned up instead, I’d still be pretty pleased. It’s a biscuit-shaped rug, that’s pretty much all we... Continue reading
