Changing Times Around The World

Wow!! We’ve only just realised that, whilst it may seem like yesterday, its been since November that we last posted to our Blog! So much has happened since then, and is still happening, that we just never seemed able to find the time so, today, we thought we would discipline ourselves and do the deed… add to our Blog. But what to add? Well we thought we would do a quick catch up on some of whats been added to the site since November, all those months ago! Some old, some favourites, some new!



Great for indoors and out Pappelina rugs continue to go from strength to strength adding new colours, new designs and a new world unique width of 230cm, something no-one else can offer. Among many great features all Pappelina rugs can be vacuumed, mopped, machine washed, hosed and even jet washed so that, given today’s health conscious environment, you can properly wash them and even use bleach to ensure they are not only clean but germ free and family safe!

Mares Tumblers from Italesse are not only stunningly beautiful they are also tough enough to be used in commercial bars, restaurants and hotels so can survive any dishwasher. Handmade from layers of coloured glass their brilliant colours will bring any cocktail or drink to life. Here we spent a happy weekend making cocktails using our new Rocks Cocktail Shaker from Zone of Denmark. Not only did we mix some great tastes we got some great photos too!

Zone Cameo Blue Hand Sanitiser in the Kitchen

These sophisticated hand pumps have quickly become a bestseller despite only being launched a few weeks ago. Available in 6 colourways they are guaranteed to look great in any place at home or at work… in hallways, by entrances, in kitchens, living rooms, studies, bedrooms and, of course, washrooms, bathrooms and toilets. We all need to keep our hands as clean as we possibly can and what better way to keep some hand sanitiser “to hand” anywhere you want for convenience and safety for you and for your guests and visitors.

Great colours, stackable, different sizes that fit on each other, tough, durable with easy carry handles plus lids that can be used as serving trays – they’ve got it all! Don’t only use for outdoors, they’re great indoors too especially for laundry and other similar jobs around the home. Easy clean too and bleach safe.


Yamazaki Magnetic Wall Mounted Holder for Keys in Black

We started with this great Japanese brand back in the Autumn and it’s doing fantastically well due, we believe, to its simple design, practical function and good looks plus, of course, an extremely high quality build standard mixed with a value for money price. What’s not to love! The wall mounting magnetic holder for keys, knickknacks and the such is leading the bestseller list at the moment, we guess as it’s just so useful and so handy. The range we carry is growing daily so don’t forget to keep an eye on it!
