Papier mache baubles - Niki Jones*

It's mid November. Time to start thinking about christmas decorations. I love these papier mache baubles designed by Niki Jones. They have a folksy, colourful vibe. Available from Niki's website, £22 for a set of four [round or teardrop style]. I also came across a fantastic and extremely addictive site called DZD who specialise in christmas decorations and props. I particularly like their oversize decorations, which seem to be very fashionable this year. Is it too early to put my tree up now?

Loveseat - Jake Phipps*

Today is breakthrough day on my garden studio project. I love breakthrough day. I have found the most beautiful seat that will be the room's focal point and is functional. The Loveseat by Jake Phipps is hand carved from one piece of cedarwood. When I first saw it I thought it was a sculpture. But you can sit on it and it's comfy! The Victorians invented the concept of the love seat to whisper restrained sweet nothings to one another. This contemporary design brings it bang up to date. I love the idea of sitting on a 40-year old carved out piece of tree: ) Available from Hidden Art for £2350, manufactured by Riva 1920 Industria Mobili SpA .
