While I make it a point of principle that each Object of Design featured on the blog is something that I would genuinely have in my house (given elastic walls and a similarly stretchy budget) every now and then something comes along that I simply must have and this task light was one of those…

There’s something about this china set that just really appeals to me and I’m not sure I know what it is. I posted at the end of last week about a set of cushions by Cygnus Papilio which have been described as a Victorian Acid Trip and these are perhaps in a similar vein. I like…

An industrial stool spray painted in copper or gold metallic paint. What could be lovelier? It comes in two heights as well so you can use at a kitchen island or at the table as extra seating. There are three colours, iron, gold and copper. If I’m honest the iron would go best in my…

Using boxes as shelving is not only fashionable but also supremely practical as it means you can change the arrangement when either you’re bored with the look or you have different things to store. Those canny ladies at Home Barn have realised the potential here and, in an expansion to their vintage and reclaimed furniture offerings,…

Before I talk to you about those rather fabulous cushions below, I would just like to say that Mad About The House has been shortlisted for the Best Interiors Blog award run by Prime Location. It’s always great to have recognition and while I’m thrilled to be nominated, I would be even more delighted to…

It’s fair to say that a lot of catalogues thud onto the doormat every week and that, if I’m honest, I don’t always open them. But the new (massive) tome from John Lewis turned up at the weekend and, aside from the fact that it could be used for weight-training, it’s rather a treat. The…

the paper bag by be-poles provides useful storage available from peastyle

I don’t know about you but I have always loved the American habit of using large brown paper bags to cart things back from the supermarket.
