Deadgood Bookshelf – £35.00
Deadgood are the home of British modern furniture, and they also have a host of innovative accessories including this ingenious bookshelf by Max Lamb. It ‘incorporates a simple U-Bend to support your favourite book, in turn, creating a perfect bookend to lean additional literary classics up against’.
Fonteyn Dressing Table – £349
Designed by Steuart Padwick, the Fonteyn dressing table comes in a range of finishes, from oak and walnut with a number of different colour options too. ‘Inspired by a dancer’s poise, this compact table is elegantly balanced, with slender, tapered legs and gracefully curved edges’, and you can take a look at it further here.

Designed by John Green, the Embrace table range was originally thought up during John’s uni days. It is ‘proudly handmade in the UK’, with each unit signed and stamped on completion before shipping. It’s also available in oak and birch finishes.
Camerino Valet Stand – currently sold out
The Camerinohttps://brosefogale.ecwid.com/ is ‘a contemporary valet stand that provides a convenient place to hang your belongings, keeping your house tidy and giving a home to your pocket ephemera’. It has flown off the shelves from the online store, yet you can sign up to be contacted when it’s back in stock. (And if you really can’t wait that long, they have lots of other items in the range, too).
For those who appreciate the design of the Camerino Valet stand, we’ve covered it before as a great example of compact bathroom design products.

Combining American fire escape design with British craftsmanship, the fire escape shelf unit looks modern and interesting as well as being the perfect place to display some of your favourite items. Each piece is handcrafted, meaning they are all truly unique and individual.
Tea Cup Stool – £159
No list of great British design pieces would be complete without a nod towards a true British staple…a good cup of tea! We fell in love with this tea cup stool, which could also easily double up as a coffee or side table thanks to its size and surprising versatility. It also comes in 9 different colours if white isn’t your…cup of tea.
Mensa Coffee Table – £2,000
Blow the budget with a piece of artwork in the form of a coffee table. The Mensa coffee table is ‘constructed using birch plywood modules with stainless steel rods to add to the structure and rigidity’.

‘Made from premium glass, hand-blown and slumped by a master glassblower each tank has it’s own unique form and individual characteristics’. Therefore this is a truly luxurious and interesting way to display your household pet! The Bubble tank will be a conversation piece as soon as you choose where to put it in your home.
This shape reminds us of a few amazing decanters we reviewed in April.
