Every fortnight, the digital team selects a handful of our absolute favourite recent additions. Here’s our latest product edit:

1. Navy stripe tiles, £157 per sq m, Otto Tiles

Otto tiles navy stripe tile

Otto Tiles’ have just added a brand new colourway to their Turkish cement tile collection, an effortlessly cool pattern of navy and white stripes.

We love them as shown here, laid in straight lines – not only is it eye-catching, but it will make your space look bigger – but you could also alternate tiles lengthways and widthways for a patchwork effect.

2. Pink Hearts and Dots French Bowl, £10.95, Emma Bridgewater

Pink Hearts & Dots French Bowl emma bridgewater

Friday 19th June marks the start of the Emma Bridgewater summer sale, the perfect opportunity to swoop in and bag a crockery bargain from the iconic British ceramics brand.

Designs included in the sale include animal and plant motifs, as well as classic Emma Bridgewater patterns like polka stars, but we have a particular soft spot for the pink hearts and dots range. Luckily, several products in the collection are in the sale, including this delectable French-style bowl. Perfect for your morning cereal or yoghurt – or go Gallic and use it to quaff some hot chocolate!

3. Gardyne fabric, £73 per sq m, James Hare

James Hare Gardyne

Gardyne is one of fine fabric specialist James Hare’s new collections for 2020. Screen-printed from an original block print, the Tudor-inspired design features floral motifs including roses, thistles and carnations.

Suitable for curtains, wall hangings or for upholstering chairs and sofas, the Gardyne pattern comes in five colourways, shown above: Terracotta, Natural, Ink, Grey and Sage Green.

4. Pescadero bath, £4,270, Victoria + Albert Baths

Victoria + Albert Baths Pescadero bath in RAL 3012 Beige Red

With sweeping lines inspired by the ocean, Victoria + Albert’s Pescadero bath takes its name from a town on the California coast. As well as being a true statement piece, the Pescadero’s deep and double-ended shape also makes it perfect for a romantic two-person dip.

Every Victoria + Albert bath and basin is available in 194 shades from the RAL colour chart, with a choice of either a matt or gloss finish. We love the perfectly on-trend Beige Red (RAL 3012), shown above in a matt finish.

5. Cosgrove table lamp, £49.50, BHS

Cosgrove Patterned Ceramic Table Lamp, Cobalt Blue BHS

Classic blue was named Pantone’s colour of the year 2020 for a reason! Blue is one of the most versatile colours to incorporate in our decor scheme. The watercolour-style blue used this Cosgrove table lamp by BHS is reminiscent of the iconic British ceramics of the 19th century.

We also love the intricate, textured patterns around the base of the lamp, which is also available in dark grey and mustard.

6. Squishmeister Love Seat Chaise, from £1,195, Loaf


We’re all spending more time than ever at home, so when it comes to our furniture comfort is at a premium. Step forward, Loaf’s Squishmeister Love Seat Chaise, a truly extravagant treat for any coach potato.

Choose from 17 fabrics spanning 156 colours from muted neutrals to bold and bright like Fiji, shown above.

7. Asella Natural Jute Chenille Kobo Rug, £90, The Rug Seller

Asella Natural Jute Chenille Kobo Rug

If your decor is all about the wooden and the woven, this is the rug for you. With its unpretentious natural look, the Asella rug is the perfect addition to a laid-back Scandi scheme or a room with plenty of greenery.

Robust jute is blended with soft chenille, making for a rug that’s hard-wearing but gentle to the touch, with interwoven accents of green (shown here), blue or pink. And at £90 (or £165 for a larger version) it’s an absolute steal.

8. Royal Selangor Domain Ice Bucket, £299, John Lewis

Royal Selangor Domain Ice Bucket

When the occasion calls for a nice bottle of champagne, it deserves to be presented in style. With its dramatic lines and gleaming patina, Royal Selangor’s Domain ice bucket is the last word in opulent barware.
