We’ve been searching for decent chopping boards for a while now, so I’m happy to say we’ve finally found some.
These Bambu Cutting Edge boards are going to rock our kitchen and makes friends with the knives, and the turquoise and green give them just the right amount of cool. Can’t wait.

Love this Lion Nightlight by Jonathan Adler.
“Guaranteed to banish monsters.”

I think the Higher Desk designed by Berlin / Shanghai design house Coordination is great.
Perfect for use in confined spaces, the minimal cork, lathed oak and lacquered steel table has an interchangeable, shorter leg that can be propped against a ledge / unit / stack of books to work more effectively within a space.

Have you ever thought about making your own robot? I mean … not just any old robot, but the coolest and most awesome robot you could ever possibly imagine?
Well … now you can. Hooray!
My Robot Nation lets you design and create your very own robot which they 3D print and send to you. How amazing is that?
You can choose from 5 different size options, and from what I tell the possibilities are pretty much endless.

My love for British designer Tom Dixon came from working at Myla when I finished college.
The Bone – a Tom Dixon designed, resin vibrator – was one of our best selling products. People came into the shop just to look at it, and although it was a beautiful thing (and paved the way for a new wave of designer sex toys) it was also crazy expensive at £199. Customers bought it anyway.
Dixonary is the first comprehensive book of his work over the last 30 years, published by Violette Editions. With personal notes on each of the 150 pieces reproduced, he explains the inspiration behind his work and the design process.
This would be an amazing addition to any designers book collection.

Pretty Pegs make amazing sofa and bed legs that can be used to jazz up IKEA furniture.
These SEVA ones are my favourite. Dip dyed feet are the way to go!

Corkcicle is my new favourite thing.
Stick it in the freezer and pop it into wine or bubbles to have a nice cold bottle for your picnic.

Although these Sheffield Kevlar Shear‘s are beautiful, I think it’s wrong on every level to charge an extra $24 for a left-handed pair.
Shame on you Best Made Company.

And with $170/£112 vs $11/£7 you just gotta wonder how much softer / better / more worth it the Cartagena pillow is?
I know it’s fun to have nice things, but damn, there’s nice and then there’s NICE!

I’m just a tiny little bit in love with these Oak Egg Cups.
They would make awesome Easter gifts.
11th March 2013
Oooo, I think I’m going to reserve myself one of these awesome Instacubes.
5th February 2013
I love this Miffy Dream Lamp by Dutch design studio Mr Maria.
23rd January 2013
This Diatomite Clock, exclusive to MoMA and designed by Yuichi Nara is gorgeous. Sleek and simple time-telling is fine by me.

I’m kind of fussy about my water and I think it’s extremely important to find a solution for providing water that not only tastes good, but is also eco-friendly in your home.
Ovopur is a gravitational filter system that combines the unique shape of an egg and the thermal properties of porcelain to preserve and revitalise water, and the aquacristal cartridge that sits inside the Ovopur is made up of 4 different filtration levels.
It’s a beautiful and very useful thing – the perfect product actually – and if we had a house it would be the second thing I’d buy, after a comfy couch!

I would absolutely LOVE Branch as our Christmas tree (although another 2 foot on the top wouldn’t go undecorated!)
The handcrafted tree is made from sustainably sourced Ash, by London designer Demelza Hill.

One Minute MBA map out 60 second visual concepts aimed at students studying online MBA courses.
There’s a bunch of bunch of them ranging from How Millionaires Go Broke to Money Laundering.
How to Design Like Apple is their latest video and worth a 60 second watch. Even if you’re not into Apple – watching the concept illustrated is cool enough on it’s own.

Please can I have a Domsai Dim Terrarium for Christmas?
The terrariums designed by Matteo Cibic are described as “Tamagotchi’s for your desk” and are tailor-made for each cactus with a 4-6 weeks delivery time.
6th December 2012
I absolutely adore this Miau Clip Dummy Holder designed by Heiko Hillig.
The maple wood finish means that babies can chew on it happily when they’re teething.

WTF is sugru?
Well, you’ll have to watch this extremely amusing video to find out.
Bonus: I think I’ve just solved about 5 of our Christmas present ideas!

Too bad this Three River MacBook Case by The Good Flock only comes in 13″…
8th November 2012
Designed for a new Norwegian collective called Food Work by Anderssen & Voll, this little coffeepot is a beauty.

As of 9pm last night, I am now the proud owner of an awesome new MacBookPro!
I was so excited to open it up! Half the fun is unwrapping such a beautiful product and the attention to detail is second to none. The sweet guy that helped us gave me a Personal Setup invite and this little card made me sigh. It’s quite simply perfection on paper.

This handcut Bamboo Macbook case by Silva Limited is divine.

Here’s my awesome Fiona Goldthorpe soap.
I told you it was way too pretty to use, and now it’ll make me happy every time I come home and drop my keys by the front door.

Hello London friends!
If you have some time this weekend head down to The Dock in West London to check out Luminosity – an exploration of artificial light in all it’s forms.
Part of the London Design Festival, the Tom Dixon design store will be showcasing Luminosity – featuring my talented friend Iain Howlett‘s gorgeous Crystallites collaboration – launching some new product ranges and having a chocolate exhibition. Mmmm.
I wish we could go!
