The 'Hide Away Shelf' by Danish design studio Nordic Function is innovative and beautiful in its simplicity.

This clever and streamlined design is a stylish solution to keeping your home looking organised and clutter-free!
Lupa (Portuguese for 'magnifying glass') is a Porto-based homeware brand founded in 2014 by graphic designer Maria Helena. The 1902 French silent movie 'Le Voyage dans la Lune' by Georges Méliès served as an inspiration for the brand's first collection. The result is a quirky, visually pleasing collection of pillowcases (pictured) and other goods.
JAN & JOHN is a design studio founded by a father (woodworker) and son (designer) duo from The Netherlands. Their first collection consist of artisan lamp designs featuring a traditional light bulb resting on a square base with flat, pentagonal faces and straight edges. Beautifully crafted out of oak wood, the minimalist design is sure to complement any interior.

Hibiscus Globe is a delicate, 100% handmade lighting design by Scottish designer Kate Colin. Each piece is unique and carefully folded into a round, floral shape. The lamp emits a beautiful, soft light and its folds, creases and angles become more apparent when lit.
orikomi (Est. 2013) is a Portugese brand of beautifully crafted origami-inspired lighting designs. As the right lighting is crucial to the atmosphere of your home, orikomi's principle is that design should be both affordable and perfectly made. What we also love is that orikomi's lamps are not just aesthetically pleasing designs, but highly recyclable products as well. Pictured is a lampshade from orikomi's 'summer collection' inspired by the little things that make the sunniest season of the year great - think: Mango juice, the smell of fresh strawberries, diving in a bright blue sea... count us enthusiastic!
We love 'Sheepad', an endearing creation designed by Aleksandra Michałowska for WellDone Dobre Rzeczy. The wool of this little sheep is actually a set of felt coasters that will protect your tabletops from stains and heat. Sheepad is sure to add a bit of whim to any room, and makes for a great (and practical) gift!
Q.Qute is a lighting design brand from Hong Kong launched earlier this year by a passionate group of creatives. Q.Qute's designs are all 3D printed and (as the brand's name implies) very cute! We love that the lamps are inexpensive and don't cost the earth, as they are made of polylactic acid (PLA), which is a biodegradable, renewable and recyclable material. Pictured is 'Retro Owl', an endearing creature that is sure to add a touch of whim to any (children's) room!

We are absolutely smitten (or should we say, over the moon?) with this magical lamp by In-es.artdesign! 'Floor Moon' is an artistic lighting design inspired by the moon’s mysterious aura. In order to mimic the soft, luminescent quality of the moon's surface and its lunar craters, the artist use Nebulite, a material composed of resins and fibers.
Mustard is a brand of incredibly fun gadgets that make wonderful gifts. Their mission? To elevate the everyday and putting a smile on your face by creating qualitative and quirky designs. We're pretty smitten with a lot of Mustard's creations, so picking one design to feature here was quite hard... pictured are their 'Mini Monster Sharpeners', cute pencil-munching creatures perfect for the office and classroom!
