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.Read More

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.
