New Vintage: Retro Table Lamp

I am always on the look out for a cool lamp and these retro table lamps have a cool 60s vibe about them.  They come in red, black or red and are made of metal.  They would look great on your bedroom or living room side table, and it looks like they give out good task lighting so would be perfect to read by in the evening.

Metal retro-styled lamp $39

They are usually $89 but are selling at Once It (you need to sign in to visit this sale site) for $39.  Sale ends today so get in quick!

Nood Sale: Sphere Hang It All Hooks

I’ve been looking for some cool coat hooks, and they are surprisingly hard to come by.  Nood is having their Spring sale with some big savings, and I see that these sphere hooks, inspired by the Eames Hang It All Rack, are on sale.  At 50% off, it could be the right time to pick up one of these funky retro coat hooks.  It’s a good copy of a mid-century classic, originally designed in 1953 for kids.  It’s a great way to inject some colour into your home.

Retro Eames-inspired design – Coat hook at $119

Retro-Inspired Cushion: Citta Design’s Niwa Cushion Cover

I love this Scandinavian-influenced pattern, Niwa, from Citta Design.    It only comes in blue and orange and is a good size at 55cm x 55cm.  The tree graphics have a bit of a Marimekko feeling to them, and would look great in an eclectic living room, or even a kid’s room.

$35 from Home Interiors
