There are so many great new arrivals appearing online and one of our favourite brands is made.com. We have featured them a lot recently and this is basically because of their great design and prices.

Our latest crush is on the Edwin sofa bed, with its classic vintage design and simple fold-down backrest. Available in three colours this sofa is certainly a winner for those who want a cool daytime sofa, but need a bed for occasional guests staying over.

home: trend [ convex mirrors ]

There has been a gradual increase in popularity for convex mirrors. Most take on the form of traditional ships mirrors with thick wooden frames.

With variations available everywhere and in different sizes, now is the time to explore the appeal of a convex mirror.

Some think that a mirror should be practical and in many ways we agree, but with the shape of a convex the clear view is distorted with a fish eye effect, and we love it.

This shape creates a wider view of the room and helps reflect light from windows more than a flat mirror. You can still see a clear reflection straight on, but from different angles you gain so much more.

We should all give a convex mirror a home.

Drawing on long established relationships with specialist suppliers, craftsmen, builders and a vast network of international sources for salvage, antiques and unusual items, Cave Interiors’ work now extends to the complete renovation of historic and landmark listed buildings.

Head to John Lewis for a new look for the home. If you love bright colours, we’ve collated our favourite current pieces currently in-store and online.

A colourful look is great with a retro twist. Stick with hues that are similar shades of a few bright colours, with turquoise, burnt orange and red for a midcentury twist. Keep sofas, armchairs or other main furniture pieces in statement plain bright colours and opt for patterns in home accessories. Look for quirky additions like the John Lewis ‘On Air‘ light box and mix fun patterns like geometric and block printing in curtains, throws and cushions.
