This find was caught sight of on the Instagram feed of of our favourite print designer Gayle Mansfield and we loved it too.

Great industrial style but sleek unit from Ikea. Perfect for both stashing and displaying all those things that need a home. Use baskets inside to hide away stuff but take advantage of the glass doors to show your favourite pieces too.

Available now from Ikea, the FABRIKOR cabinet is £130.

2017 sees a move towards big and bold in wall art in the home. To create an impact and a statement in a room, abstract art has a powerful wow-factor and can bring colours together from a scheme, introduce pattern and be a visual talking point. 


Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.

Abstract art can also translate into soft furnishings and fabrics; for curtains, cushions and bedding. It is a good way to bring bold pattern into design and be the starting point for the styling and use of colour in a room. Work of famous and amateur artists is often translated into fabric design. Head to ZaidaUk or Zazzle for Abstract art on cushions or visit museum shops for great examples. We love these Henri Matisse cushions from HomeLava (below) at just £10.

One of the most renowned abstract artists was Jackson Pollock and his work is famously shown world wide in galleries as well as designed into many homeware pieces both from the original works as well as inspired designs from his work. 

Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), known professionally as Jackson Pollock, was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting.
