Stunning lampshade

Stunning lampshade

This black and white graphic dahlia design lampshade is very striking and would work well with a monochrome decor scheme.

It’s handmade in the UK, available in a so-called ‘stumpy’ size and can work with pendant light fittings or simply as a lampshade.

The dahlia print lampshade is available from Illustrated Living, for £31.95.

Etched tea light holder

Etched tea light holder

This lovely glass tea light holder, by Sagaform, is etched with a pretty stem pattern – not unlike Orla Kiely’s classic stem designs.

The holder is 15cm tall, so can comfortably hold a tall candle or a small tea light and it glows beautifully when lit.

Buy the Sagaform candle holder from Illustrated Living, for £12.95.

Don’t forget, you can still take advantage of our special 10% discount with Illustrated Living for all purchases made until 31st December 2009.

Unusual cable and cotton lights

These unusual cable and cotton lights look like a fun way of adding creative lighting into your home, especially as you can either hang or drape the cable and use it wherever you want in your home.

The box arrives with 35 colourful cotton spheres in it, which you can arrange onto a cable loop as you want. They provide a decorative focus point when not lit, but when they’re switched on, they offer an interesting glow.

The cable and cotton lights are £34.95 for a set of 35.

Retro phone

This purple trim phone is styled on the original 70s Trim Phone, but has a modern retro feel to it.

The twist dial has been replaced by an easy to use push button system and it’s in a gorgeous shade of purple, plus various other colours too. It’s priced at £34.95.

Red felt placemats

Red felt placemats

These fun red felt placemats in the Enchanted Forest design have butterflies, flowers and birds cut into them.

Now Panic and Freak Out tea towel

Now panic and freak out tea towel

Now panic and freak out tea towel

As much as we like the odd phrase used around the home, the use of quotes and wording in home accessories is being rather done to death at the moment.

So we were pleased to find this alternative tea towel, which is a nice antidote to some of the sweet and sickly quotes that are in abundance.

The Now Panic and Freak Out tea towel uses the phrase coined by Olly Moss in response to the phrase Keep Calm and Carry On.

The tea towel is available to pre-order (delivery will be in time for Christmas) from Illustrated Living for £7.95.
