A Great Rack

We’re not sure if it gets its name from its splash-like shape or its lick of paint but we can’t deny the beautiful simplicity of these ‘Splash’ coat racks by Blu Dot. Crafted from powder-coated steel and walnut, you can choose them in blue, yellow, grey, red or white. It just seems a shame to hide such an object of beauty.

Price 280 USD

Local Flavour

In a nod to the shantytowns of his native Rio de Janerio, Brunno Jaharah creates Neorustica, a vibrantly rustic furniture line made from scrap wood salvaged from construction sites. 

Price 8,000 USD

Lightyears Away

These powder-coated stainless steel ‘Pillhead’ lamps are the work of Hungarian design duo A+Z Design. Apparently drawing inspiration from a UFO – rather than an adorable alien as we thought – they’re definitely out of this world.

Price 400-800 USD depending on size

No Garden Variety

The Odd Piece is a Middle Eastern furniture store with a difference. It has no physical location so orders are taken online and the range encompasses everything from restored vintage finds to modern statement pieces. The only common denominator is that everything was individually curated by Saudi-born furniture lover Arwa Hafiz. Maybe there’s something there for you.

Price available upon request

Just as every iteration of the S-Class defines that decade’s saloon, the Range Rover is the benchmark against which all other SUVs are compared. Its latest, the fourth generation model, has made life harder for its rivals, once again.
Ladies, when it comes to staying in style with your clothes and accessories this spring, think colour, attitude and - naturally - confidence.
