The Kino Mushroom Lamp by Linadura

The Kino Mushroom Lamp by Linadura

He looks like something you’d find on a woodland walk, but this little guy is actually a table lamp! The Kino, designed by Emmanuel Gardin for Linadura, is made by bending a single sheet of birch multiplex into the shape of a mushroom. The concept behind Kino, much like Gardin’s...
Handcrafted Wooden Bunnies from Nämä

Handcrafted Wooden Bunnies from Nämä

I debated saving these little guys for an Easter post, but they’re too irresistible not to share today! They’re designed by Ina Herkert and made from blocks of birch. Since they’re crafted individually by hand, each bunny is slightly different to the last. Available from Nämä, photographs by Ruth Landesa.

The Georg Collection by Skagerak

The Georg Collection by Skagerak

The Georg collection is one of the core ranges of Skagerak, a Danish brand that came to my attention after they exhibited at Home this year. The collection was originally launched in September 2014, limited to the untreated oak pieces you can see here. A year later three new designs (a small mirror, small rack...
The Molosco Dinner Set by Laura Letinsky

The Molosco Dinner Set by Laura Letinsky

Over Christmas I had the pleasure of eating off some beautiful gold rimmed dessert plates at my in-laws’ house, and since then I’ve been a little bit obsessed with gold rims on tableware. When I spotted these plates and bowls by American photographer-turned-designer Laura Letinsky I instantly fell in love. As well as having that all-important shimmery...

SS15 Interiors Trend Preview: Monometric

 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 This trend comes courtesy of Trend Bible, my go-to resource for interiors trends. Even if you’re the skeptical type that doesn’t pay much attention to trend forecasts (I’m with you, honestly I am), they can be incredibly interesting to read and are...
The Well Lamp by MEJD

The Well Lamp by MEJD

The Well Lamp by MEJD is inspired by traditional water wells. Suspended from a rope inside the glass case, the bulb can be raised or lowered similar to a bucket being winched in and out of the water. The gradient from transparent to sanded matte glass means you can adjust the brightness of the light as you...
January's Colours

January’s Colours

It’s cold, it’s drizzling, Christmas trees are browning on the pavement outside the flat, and my mood is starting to match the climate. When I saw this apartment over on My Scandinavian Home I thought it was absolutely perfect for a January post. It’s solemn without being depressing – quite the feat for a home composed...
Ombre Glass Vessels from Dechem Studio

Ombre Glass Vessels from Dechem Studio

Just when you thought ombre was gone for good, it resurfaces again! These little vessels are arguably more of a spring purchase than mid-winter, but I thought they were so nice I couldn’t resist putting them up here. The various sizes of containers and vases are hand-blown in beech wood moulds. The glass has gentle...
Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

This year, Sam and I bought our very first Christmas tree! The entire flat smells like pine needles. It’s lovely. This little guy came in a bag of unwanted decorations donated by his parents. I’m going to take a little hiatus over the Christmas period so there won’t be any new posts here until the New...
Polaroid-style Prints from Polabox

Polaroid-style Prints from Polabox

Here’s something cool I found this week – an online service where you can convert your social media snaps into real, polaroid-style paper prints. This retro gift set from Polabox has been launched just in time for Christmas – a godsend if you’re shopping for an instragram addict. My photos arrived stashed in a cute little...
Ceramic Lamps from Enrico Zanolla

Ceramic Lamps from Enrico Zanolla

These black ceramic lamps are the latest collection from Italian designer Enrico Zanolla. Long fascinated by the shapes of old industrial lamps, Enrico wanted to reinvent them using warmer materials – hence his choice to use a ceramic shade, rather than metal. The optional copper or gold inner is intended as a nod back to the timeless...
Revisiting the gold bar cart

Revisiting the gold bar cart

I’ve always loved the glamorous gold bar carts I’ve seen in other bloggers’ homes (for example, Kimberly of Swoonworthy) and been pretty envious, but I just couldn’t work out how something like that would fit with the rest of my decorating choices. They tend to look best surrounded by other very glamorous items – velvet...
Christmas Gifts for Design Lovers

Christmas Gifts for Design Lovers

Only four weeks to go ‘til the big day. Are you stuck for gift ideas? Here are some nice bits and bobs I came across over the last few weeks that should please the design aficionados in your life. They look a little different to the plastic varieties you can buy in the supermarket, but...
Geometric Candle Holders by FactoryTwentyOne

Geometric Candle Holders by FactoryTwentyOne

It doesn’t get much more eco-friendly than this. These geometric candle holders are made from the wooden offcuts left over from one of their other collections – the pallet lamp. The lamp itself is already made from recycled pallets, meaning the candle holders are actually re-recycled! Sort of. They’re the brainchild of FactoryTwentyOne and cost £34.99...
