Corner Collection by H

The classic sideboard returns as a bold statement for the modern living room. Designed by H, a new London based design company with Mexican origins, this fabulous monolithic piece forms part of their latest 'Corner Collection' recently launched at IMM Cologne. A stated aim of theirs is to 'embrace contrast and celebrate difference', and with its optimistic bright yellow finish and 45° chamfered edges (that literally take the edge off what could easily have been just another big storage unit), this is a piece of furniture with understated attitude.

Treat Yourself

So we've nearly managed to get through the first month of the year which definitely deserves a pat on the back. Thankfully, for most of us, the first payday of the year has arrived and to celebrate I thought I would pick out some of my favourite finds to help brighten the final days of January.

A wall leaning side table

The new SS14 collection from Menu includes the wall leaning Yeh side table - a versatile and strikingly minimal design that lends itself perfectly to use as a bedside table or as a resting place for magazines and a cup of coffee beside the sofa.

Designed by Taipei based Kenyon Yeh and made from powder coated steel and tube, its circular tabletop folds at a right angle into a point that clings to the wall to prevent the table toppling over.

Interview: Cara Holland of patternbooth

Not everyone follows a traditional linear route when it comes to making career decisions. When I worked in design education I couldn't help but notice that, for a large number of people, deciding to follow a creative path wasn't something they chose (or perhaps felt able) to do straight from school. Sometimes forging out that path comes later, maybe even having a different career.

I've followed patternbooth, the blog of Nottingham based designer Cara Holland, for some time now and have enjoyed reading about Cara's journey to launching her first homeware collection. I was also intrigued by the following line in her about page.

"I have a long standing love affair with art, design and pattern which began as a teenager and has brought me on a long winding route to now making my own range."

Cara presented her debut collection of boldly coloured, geometric cushions, wallpaper and lampshades at Home earlier this month, and so it seemed like an ideal time to ask her more about her own journey.

Style Envy | Sheepskins on Chairs

Even the most perfectly formed chairs are somehow made infinitely more inviting by the addition of a casually placed sheepskin rug. Well it is January, and we all want to feel a bit more cosy at this time of year don't we?

A quick trawl of Pinterest yields dozens of examples, (Harry Bertoia's graceful 1950s diamond chair crops up time and time again). In all of the interiors featured in this post it's the addition of the sheepskin that adds an air of informality, suggesting that the home is a place that is lived in and enjoyed, as opposed to a perfect and pristine space that is 'on show'.

Design Hunter's Amara wishlist

Like many people I often use Pinterest to bookmark things that catch my eye, compiling them into a wishlist of things I'd love to treat myself to.

To celebrate their launch in the US & Australia, luxury interiors store Amara is hosting an international Pinterest competition in which the winner will receive £1000 (or $ equivalent) to spend on their Amara wishlist. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning simply create a Pinterest board called 'Amara wishlist' and then start pinning your favourite items from Amara.com. Once you've finished your board you'll also need to submit a link to it on the Amara competition page.

Here are a few of the items on my Amara wishlist (plus more favourites on Pinterest).

1. walnut side table  |  2. ombre throw  |  3. sugar & creamer set  |  4. carved wooden vase  |  5. zigzag cushion  |  6. singing bowl  |  7. glass vase
