Canova Hall Opens

We love it when beautiful old buildings are looked after and brought back to life. Launched this August, Canova Hall breathes new air into one of Brixton’s most commemorated buildings; what used to be the beloved worker’s hall of Britain’s first department store Le Bon Marché across the road.

Christmas tree decorations….mainly baubles

As well as writing Christmas cards, which we genuinely love and find really therapeutic, we also love getting a Christmas tree, dragging it back home on the bus and then getting out all the ornaments from previous years and new ones we bought with great foresight in the January sales. Winning. Here are some of our faves from this year’s offerings.

Stelton with the Collar up

Adored Danish tableware brand Stelton (check out your Mum’s cupboards- she will have one of their gravy boats or definitely a vacuum jug) has worked with the Italian design duo, Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri, to create the Collar collection especially for all coffee aficionados. We definitely fall into that bracket.

Stelton collar range

For the astute coffee drinker, nothing is more important than flavour (and a nice shaped cup that feels right we always think.) The classic, Italian coock-top espresso maker, also known as a “Moka Pot”, is the utmost tool for creating a professional, full-bodied brew at home. Collar has a perfect silhouette with Stelton’s lauded Scandinavian design aesthetics.

Stelton collar set

Although the range was created last year, the matte black and on-trend gold and beech finishes make sure that these pieces don’t need to be hidden way in cupboards and are utterly timeless.

Gavin Coyle Book Caddy

Look, maybe it’s just because we live in Walthamstow and see with our own eyes the creativity that abides there, but we think it might just be the most creative area of East London. Maybe. (Ahem.) With the Blackhorse Workshops, the E17 Art Trail and just about every design and art magazine editor living there, we reckon we win in the design influencer stakes.
