Designer Abigail Ahern has been hailed as one of the most trend-setting names in interiors – a style disruptor with a fearless approach to home design. In her collaboration with Wayfair, Abigail’s signature moody palette is given an earthy twist, with urban furniture meeting raw and rustic elements- and the best thing about the range? It’s blooming affordable.

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.

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.

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.
