Have yourself a cooler Yule – Snowflake necklace

8 Dec

Christmas. A time of tinsel, bad jumpers and, dare I say it, outright tat. So, this year, why not break with tradition and get yourself a cool yule conversation piece. These fab perspex necklaces from Brookadelphia –Snowflake and Ice – are handmade in Brooklyn and Philadelphia (hence the name). Get yours here.

A rather sexy… tea towel?

13 Nov

Ok, here at Conversation Pieces HQ, I may have gone a little tea towel crazy. Who knew drying the dishes had this much potential? My new favourite is Emma Bridgewater’s rather sexy Daniel Craig tea towel. Yours here for a mere £6. The dreams of course come free ;)

T-shirtless? Time to get some Threadless.

7 Nov

Hankering after a tee that’s a bit smarter than the average? Then check out Threadless. It’s a brilliant US site where people submit their t-shirt designs, other people vote on them, and the designs with the most votes become real, but limited edition, t-shirts. Plus if a favourite t-shirt gets sold out, you can vote for it to be re-printed. Genius.

Yours for only $15 each (or sign up for their newsletter and they’ll let you know when they have their most bargainous $10 sales). A word of warning though, these t-shirts get addictive – I’ve lost count of how many I’ve bought!

Cardboard Rocket wendy/play house

30 Oct

Everyone knows that kids prefer boxes to their actual toys – but it’s not exactly interior design friendly to have a random cardboard box sitting about the house.
So why not give them a cardboard rocket to play in instead?

Made from recycled cardboard, the Paperpod Rocket from Nigel’s Eco Store adds
a bit of eco cool to play-time. Best of all, your kids (or you) can decorate it with paint, crayons, pens, glitter… whatever. And when they’re done with it, the Paperpod Rocket folds up flat for easy storage. Gets yours for £29.99 here.

"This is not a book" shelf… the Self Shelf

2 Oct

Here’s a conversation piece to make you smile… the Self Shelf.

By Nicole Van Schouwenburg and Irene Klinkenberg, the Self Shelf is a shelf that looks like a book. It’s attached to the wall using the supplied bracket and will ‘invisibly’ support your favourite books. Ideal if you’re into witty, minimalistic design.

The only giveaway that all is not what it seems: the title. ‘Ceci n’est pas un livre’ means ‘this is not a book’ in French. (And, of course, the author’s name: S.E.L.F. Shelf.) Get yours from Twenty Twenty One.
