1 Classic lines

Ligne Roset is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its iconic Togo seat. Created by the French designer Michel Ducaroy in 1973, the same year that the Ligne Roset brand was launched, Togo was a 70s classic and is still one of the brand's bestsellers.

Ÿ Togo, prices start at Dh10,400 for the small setee, Ligne Roset, Sheikh Zayed Road, Aati, Za'abeel Road and Bloomingdale's Home, Dubai Mall

 

2 Basket case

With its thin, wide straps, the Muuto Wicker bread basket references traditional Scandinavian basket weaving techniques, with a modern twist. The basket is made from hard-wearing plastic and is light but sturdy. We'd use it as a fruit basket and give it pride of place on our kitchen counter.

3 Farm fresh

Villeroy & Boch's latest tableware collection, Farmhouse Touch, has a natural, rustic feel to it. High-quality porcelain is coupled with contemporary, country-inspired motifs. We love the soft hues of the Farmhouse Touch Blueflowers line, which takes its inspiration from cornflowers and ears of grain.

4 Light fantastic

We love the pared-back simplicity of the Section Lamp. Designed to accentuate the stark beauty of the bulb, the lamp consists of a rectangular steel frame and a Pacific Rimu wood holder, and is fitted with an adjustable dimmer. The Section Lamp comes in red, black and white, too, but the blue version is our favourite by far.

5 Keeping it in the family

Ferm Living's Family Tree wallpaper is just the thing if you are looking to transform a nondescript wall into an eye-catching feature. Designed by Trine Andersen, Family Tree features a natural woodland motif set on Ferm Living's WallSmart non-woven fleece wallpaper, which is easier and faster to hang than traditional papers.
