Industrial furniture can be tricky to bring into a home for anyone who doesn’t actually live in a warehouse. The key is to find pieces that nod to the look, or are based on the idea without being too pastiche. This sofa has done that. For those of you that have been following the ongoing…

Large Square Floor Cushion

It’s a small thing, not exactly up there with the world’s problems, but hey, this is a blog about interiors not politics, so I feel I justified in mentioning it. Floor cushions, beanbags, pouffes, call them what you will, a tricky purchase. I remember writing my very first feature for The Daily Mail many, many…

Industrial Storage Cabinet

The industrial furniture trend shows no sign of disappearing and while, on the one hand, as the high street gets involved the early adopters move on, on the other, it does mean that it becomes more affordable for the others. It’s all very well if you can afford a genuinely vintage industrial metal cabinet that…

Vintage Metal Bathroom Cabinet

I recently wrote about a new book by stylist Joanna Thornhill which is all about tips and tricks to make your home more you. It’s aimed at those in rented accommodation and first time buyers who have no money left to buy furniture once they’ve bought the walls and roof. I felt at the time,…

Hands up who thinks there’s something familiar about these pictures … Take a look at the sofa, so crushingly described as “a bit vintage” by Living Etc. That pale linen chair which has appeared on Twitter in a much muddier state, followed by a picture of a not very guilty looking cat … Yes, it’s…

Filing Drawers with Brass Handles

Inspired by old bank safety deposit boxes, these steel drawers would look great on any desk. I particularly love the brass handles which move them on from being simply utilitarian to a real object of design. They open at the front so you can pile them up and create a mini filing system and they…

Mad About… Grand Budapest Hotel

I do love a Wes Anderson film and while I haven’t seen this one yet I see no reason to assume that I won’t like it as much as the others. There have been countless essays and blog posts written on Anderson’s work, ranging from how Star Wars would be if he filmed it (here),…

Black or White Laundry Bag

Sometimes it’s the simple things that bring the most pleasure. And today that simple thing is a laundry bag. My beautiful (and rather expensive hyacinth) basket has finally died. This may have rather more to do with Enid Cat using it as a chew toy and bolt hole than it not being up to the…
