We really like the Openest6 range by Studio Urquiola for Haworth. The range comprises of a curved sofa, stool and table set. All with a distinctive flowing shape and a neutral palette.
Mark Product have always been a firm favourite of ours with their stackable, brightly coloured stools and 3 legged chairs. The wide range of standard options coupled with the company’s willingness to work on bespoke solutions has made them a popular choice amongst architects and designers.
We are big fans of the Sagal Groups gorgeous and simple furniture range- we would have this in our house let alone our office. The cylindrical base that has been copied across the Pod range is a particular design favourite with us and marks the range out as a one that will become iconic.
The Dove and Renown range from Triumph is simple and timeless- with an obvious Scandi influence that we really like.

Wallpaper wasn’t so fashionable, then it was…..then paint was huge but only with grey undertones…..then Victoriana wallpaper with a big emphasis on William Morris and flowers arrived…..and then, thank God, brands like All the Fruits and Kirath Ghundoo finally came to the fore.
Here are just a few shots from Ghundoo’s 2016 range. The pastel colours work and the dramatic geometric shapes, make for a paper that could work in nearly any environment.
The shade of this blue and the simple repeated pattern make the above a tranquil offering that would work well in a home office space. The range also comes in green.
Called Hampton for a clear reason, anyone who takes this wallpaper on, needs to be very sure of their interior style- and that there isn’t a history of migraines in the family. We love it at Despoke, but could only use this if we had a very large room dedicated to sailing. And we don’t.

Perfectly mismatched meaning you could put it up yourself and not worry about matching patterns, we remember seeing this at 100% design a few years ago and feeling instantly lifted. if it’s good enough for Susie Bubble…..
