On my radar: new finds for the home

This week’s ‘On my radar’ home inspiration post combines eye-catching marbled wallpaper, sleek minimalist dining tables and simple, soft minimal home accessories. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re daring with your pattern, love a classic, timeless design or simply have an unhealthy appetite for buying ceramics (like me!)… Marbled wallpaper by Murals Wallpaper I’m not usually one for pattern or colour but these softly hued marbled wallpapers have caught my eye. Paper marbling dates back to the twelfth century, when artisans used absorbent papers and ink to recreate the finely veined patterns of smooth marble and stone. Designed and sold by Murals Wallpaper, these intricate, hypnotising designs use photography and modern digital printing to blow up the paint effects of marbling onto wallpaper. Use as a feature wall to add instant impact to a room, or wrap around a whole space if you’re brave enough… All prints are custom-sized, made-to-order and priced at £25.00 per square metre.

Soft Edge by Iskos-Berlin for HAY

On my radar: 5 furniture finds

In the second of my regular ‘On my radar’ posts, I share my latest favourite furniture finds that have popped into my inbox or I’ve discovered while out and about. This week we have Scandinavian moulded plywood chairs, customisable bespoke furniture and inventive solutions for the everyday from the end-of-year student shows… Soft Edge by Iskos-Berlin for HAY Soft Edge is a collection of lightweight moulded plywood chairs by Danish design duo Iskos-Berlin. Described by HAY as the next step in the development of moulded plywood techniques, the chairs feature a softly shaped seat and back. Subtly curved edges on the seat and back gently face away from the body, while legs come in a slender steel or a chunkier wooden frame. They’re stackable and light, perfect for cafes and canteens or for space-saving home interiors.    Orlo Mirrors Collection by Another Brand Orlo is a new range of wall and table mirrors made of solid oak and oak veneer, finished with clear or brightly coloured mirrored panels. It’s by Another Brand, whose designer and creative director …

Palissade collection by the Bouroullec brothers

COS x HAY Garden Collection

I’ve written about the love affair between fashion brand COS and Danish design brand HAY previously, when they presented a carefully curated collection of objects together back in autumn last year. Now, with summer finally approaching, they’ve added to that edited-down set of Scandi-style designs with garden furniture and accessories. From grey plant pots and glass bowls to minimal metal chairs and trays for summer entertaining, there’s plenty of easy ways to bring the simple, modern style of the two brands outside in the open air. Central to the updated collection is a set of anthracite-shaded chairs and benches by the French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Developed over the course of two years, this Palissade collection is made from powder coated steel and includes a dining chair, low lounge chair, table, ottoman and bench. Classical in form yet simple in construction, the slatted designs are elegant and timeless while modern and light at the same time – I can equally see them in a overgrown floral garden in the countryside or a sleek modern terrace in the city, or …


Styled: COS x HAY’s curated collection

Beautifully simple and modern clothing brand COS has been subtly working with contemporary Danish design firm HAY for years, you might have seen their minimal HAY rails used in stores to display clothing for example. But in an exciting move, the two Scandi-style brands are teaming up to present a carefully curated collection of objects, available online and spread out in all their neat and organised glory in the COS Kensington High Street store. COS heads of design Karin Gustaffson and Martin Andersson have handpicked items from the HAY range, from their distinctive, colourful trays to unusual glassware, porcelain cups and cotton quilts – ‘We made sure we selected items from across the HAY range so that there’s something for every room, occasion and price point, we like to describe it as HAY seen through the eyes of COS,’ says Andersson. Mette + Rolf Hay, the co-founders of HAY add: ‘At HAY we see ourselves in between fashion and architecture and in working with COS we feel like we have found a perfect home.’ I think this really …

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for HAY

French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have unveiled a new collection for Danish furniture manufacturer HAY. The furniture collection for the University of Copenhagen in Denmark includes a wooden chair, a bar stool and several tables. The starting point for this series is based on an old university chair, inspired by the architect Bernt Pedersen’s trestle chair. Due to the symmetrical frames, the chairs and tables both stack vertically. They say: This chair is a simple and beautiful chair with an uncomplicated identity. In our interpretation we have upheld the original chair typology and sought to maintain the compelling simplicity of the original chair. Images: Bouroullec studio
