These pieces are the perfect combination of two new trends: a desire for furniture with a narrative and a new enthusiasm for the exuberant colour palette offered by vintage textiles. I love this juxtaposition of very traditional furniture with really interesting fabrics It also encapsulates a trend for recycling - giving old, well-made pieces of furniture a new lease of life. You can find these at Lisa Whatmough's Squint boutique in east London and in Liberty's.

100% Norway: Glass

These beautiful pieces of Glass were presented by 100% Norway at 100% design exhibition in London. Each designer has taken the 100% Norway key theme of sustainability and interpreted it in a new way. One example is Cathrine Maske’s Blue Wing Butterfly vase which has been designed to draw attention to a national species that is close to extinction – immortalised as it is forever now within multiple layers of glass.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion

Last chance to visit the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 by Olafur Eliasson and Kjetil Thorsen ends 5 November 2007. If you haven't seen it already and your in town it's definately worth stopping by for a coffee to admire the timberclad structure which resembles a spinning top. There's a spiralling ramp which makes two complete turns, allowing visitors to ascend from the Gallery lawn to the highest point for views across Kensington Gardens as well as a bird’s eye view of the chamber below.

Kenzo Home Collection

Spotted the new Kenzo Home collection at Maison Object. It looked great, love the vibrant mix of scales patterns and textures! Check at Kenzo's web site at www.kenzo.com

More Steel bending... not a new concept but a quirky design nonetheless. Piegato by MRDO Products is a “sheet steel rack with a surprisingly high load capacity, laser cut and powder coated sheet steel” a simple design, allowing YOU to choose which you use as shelves and which as magnetic boards. www.mrdoproducts.com
