Monochrome, patterned and rather gorgeous – we love this Marimekko Orkanen Vasu Storage Basket from Trouva.

It’s a luxurious treat at £94 but a beautiful way to add a little of this cult designer to a home.

home: trend [ sculptured form ]

As we head into Autumn new trends are alway appearing, including today’s pick – sculptured form.

Taking inspiration from sculpture and art, furniture & lighting are taking on forms that give them the appearance of something more than just a functional object. Sofas and chairs are given soft curved lines with lighting being something not out if place on a gallery plinth.

We have always bought furniture for not just it’s use, but also it’s form and now it seems brands are going that bit further to offer us something even more interesting and eye catching.

Every so often we come across a truly beautiful diy project and this from We Are Scout is no exception.

To take such a simple idea of printing with leaves and fabric paint and produce such beautiful homeware is very clever

Follow their simple tutorial and get creative. This process will produce modern organic printed fabric – it could be used for a table cloth, curtains, cushions, tea towels – the options are endless.

It would also make a lovely design for a wrapping paper.

If you are looking for well priced, on trend lighting then you should consider Maison Du Monde.

We spotted this great little paper & metal table lamp, which we think can work in any room, especially in the corner of a living room as a secondary light.

The shape and design gives off a gentle glow with a pattern created from the paper strips.
