A reminder for the diary. Our favourite interiors haunt is closing for development to make it even better!

Say farewell to the current Geffrye Museum over the weekend of Epiphany, with a variety of entertainment and things to enjoy!

6 + 7 January

They say;

Visit us for Christmas Past and come to our Epiphany Celebration and Closing Party on the weekend of 6 and 7 January to enjoy street food, winter cocktails and live music as we say farewell to Christmas and to the museum, which will close on 7 January for almost two years for our exciting £18m development project, Unlocking the Geffrye. Although the main museum building and period gardens will be closed, there will still be plenty of reasons to come to the Geffrye. Throughout closure we will run a busy programme of events, activities and installations in our front gardens. The restored almshouse will also be open for tours on certain dates throughout the year.

So you’ll need to buy a frame but finding a cool piece of art work for just a fiver is an incredible find. Hunting through the new home products at House of Fraser we find this gorgeous wrapping paper (3 metres for £5) that is so perfect it needs to be framed. Make a statement – find a great big frame (try the largest size in Ribba frame from Ikea or head to Desenio and pick one of their skinny profile frames) and cut the paper to size.

The pattern, the colour – it’s all on trend and would be perfect as a focus piece of art in a lounge or bedroom.

To ensure the paper stays smooth and flat, hunt out your local picture framers and ask them to ‘dry mount’ the paper to a board (this can cost around £20 for a 60×80 size piece)

We are a little in love with this new collection available at TwentyTwentyOne and picked this serving tray as our favourite piece. The collection pays homage to the brilliance of chair design in the last century, including designers like Eames and Wegner. The homeware pieces designed by Ella Dora collate the iconic designs from photographic imagery.

They say;

Created in collaboration with twentytwentyone, Ella Doran’s new collection sees the designer’s trademark eye for colour and pattern applied to iconic chair designs of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The new twentytwentyone collection of homewares are decorated with a design created from images of chairs from twentytwentyone’s archive, captured by photographer Mark Whitfield and portraying a unique and dynamic selection of designs dating from the 1930s to the present day.

Remarkable for their formal and technological variety, the chairs featured offer a snapshot of the ingenuity and creativity that has been applied to the design of this essential piece of domestic furniture.

The chairs featured include designs by Alvar AaltoRobin DayCharles and Ray EamesArne JacobsenJasper MorrisonGeorge NelsonVerner Panton and Hans Wegner – amongst others.

A must for design enthusiasts as well as those who appreciate colour and pattern, the twentytwentyone collection includes mugs, coasters and placemats alongside trays.

The twentytwentyone collection tray is available in round (with black background) or rectangular (with white background) designs.

Ella Doran trays are made out of single sheets of the finest Scandinavian birch wood, sourced for its fine grain and exceptional width. They have no joins and are coated with hard-wearing melamine, making them durable and dishwasher safe, as well as pleasant to look at and handle.
