Formica® Inlay Tables

It’s Formica® but not as we know it. Last week I ran a post on the return of Anaglypta wallpaper and how it’s becoming cool again. Well judging by the reaction of some people you’d think I suggested a wholesale return to the 1970s General Strikes and all. There were, in the interests of fairness,…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

Natural Flooring from Flock

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…

I have been meaning to show you the new collection from House Envy for ages, but they keep adding to it and each time I discover something new so it never gets done. But I have decided – enough. So here are a few of my favourite things. And there’s not a bright copper kettle…

Filing Drawers with Brass Handles

25th March 2014

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…

Black or White Laundry Bag

24th March 2014
AD / May contain affiliate links...

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…
