Gräshoppa floor lamp

by Claire on May 25, 2011

tripod floor lamp

Now this is a bit of a spluge item, it costs £468 from Chelsea Textiles. But if you have a couple of quid spare, it’s simply a must. It’s hand made, and hand painted and the tripod design is very mid century. Hubba.

Camille Walala Printed Plates

by Claire on May 23, 2011

These digitally printed ceramics are the latest edition to Camille Walala (better known for her textiles range) collection. They’re all positive messages, brightly coloured and just looking at them now has gee’d me up! The ‘only way is up’ is giving me a Yazz and the plastic population moment though!! They cost £40 each and you can buy them direct from Camille’s website.

Because You’re Mine …

Because You're Mine ...

How totally cute is this cushion. It features the Jonny Cash lyrics “because you’re mine I walk the line”. Or perhaps you’re more of a Grease lyric fan? If so, the cushions below are a must.

They’re all available from Fine Cell Work for £52 each.

And apologies in advance if you’re now singing that song in your head! :)

Wine & Juice Carafe

by Claire on May 19, 2011

juice and wine carafes

I have a carafe, one which comes with four little glasses. In our house it generally comes out when friends are round and we start playing drinking games  ….. but that’s a whole different post!

I spotted these beauties over at The Gifted Penguin, and immediately the colours and typography called out to me. They’d look great on open shelves. I am sure I have also seen a water one too, but for the life of me I can not find it. Anyway, they’re just £6.99 each – bargain. I’m bookmarking these as I think they’d make a great wedding gift.

eBay Store Love: londonpuppetshow

by Claire on May 18, 2011

londonpuppetshow on ebay

I am loving the seller londonpuppetshow on eBay. They have managed to get their paws on some beautiful vintage / retro furniture in brilliant condition. The photos are just a small sample, some of the chairs they have which I have not pictured are divine and I shall shortly be featuring them over on Chair Lover. The prices are good. Cheapest item is a Vintage 50s Lounge Chair for £149 (0r offers) and the most expensive being the Rosewood Shelving unit, which I adore. That’s £900.

To be fair, I would personally have some of the items recovered, but that’s a personal taste thing. If you’ve a few spare minutes, go check them out!

Big thanks to Heather over at Eclectic Chair for the heads up. If you know of anything we may be interested in, drop a line to claire@nestgoodies.co.uk but please don’t bore me with irrelevant press releases, we don’t use them and just click delete.
