Memphis Coffee Table Book

The Memphis Group had a huge impact on 80s design and this cool coffee table book about its influence on interiors and culture, written by a founder-member, is a statement piece itself with its cool cover design. (P.S. if you want to see some of the pieces first-hand, there’s an exhibition running at MK Gallery, in Milton Keynes, until Sept).

Multicolour Abstract Painting

A bit of abstract art is a given, and we like this hand-painted, unique one from Folk Interiors. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your placement: colour clashing and print-mixing can be a total look.

Ekstrem Chair

This eccentric chair promises, wait for it – ‘unparalleled comfort’ – despite all appearances. In fact, you can sit in it in a variety of ways: forward with feet on the ground, sideways with legs placed on the armrests or, erm, upside-down… keeps things interesting, eh?
