home: trend [ gold ]

It doesn’t have to be brash or over shiny, it doesn’t have to come across ostentatious or too blingy but this season, gold is the colour to embrace. From the, it seems, permanently on trend, metallics family, gold is a great colour to introduce in small homewares or be bold and embrace layering golds from walls, to floors, to ceramics to soft furnishings. Use either dark tones or soft blush and whites to sit along side.

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.

home: nice price [ Kenwood Stand Mixer ]

This week there are bargains galore leading up to and including Friday – thanks to us borrowing the American idea of a one off huge sale day ‘Black Friday’ – which seems to have grown to a week and even a fortnight with some brands.

It’s not the nicest invention for small brands who can’t compete with big brands on discounts and lose custom, but also leaves brands who have huge discounts with little or no profit – but it without a doubt for the consumer a day to grab a bargain. However it’s only a bargain if you actually needed it in the first place.

Electronics and appliances are the best products to take advantage of on such a day and our NICE PRICE find is this Kenwood Stand Mixer with a huge discount at Amazon
