Playing with scale - Neo Baroque chandelier*

The V&A Baroque show is fast approaching, so it feels timely that Atelier Abigail Ahern's Spring 09 collection features an amazing, supersized neo-Baroque chandelier. It's strong element of fantasy and play on scale is very Alice in Wonderland and brings some much needed restrained glamour. But from it's light, glass-like appearance you'd never guess it's made of wire!


These gorgeous teapot and mug cosies by Ruth Cross are hand-knitted in an Alpaca wool mix and use a stag horn button. The design feels right for these lean times. Gorgeous, snug, ethical and organic.
