Conran Collection for M&S

Conran

The first, and hotly anticipated, Conran Collection for M&S arrives this Autumn, with a wide range of products such as furniture, bedding, lighting and kitchenware, including the Ackroyd sofa pictured.

An impressive array of goodies are on offer, from modular sofa systems to rugs to laboratory-themed vases, all with the level of design expertise and mid-century styling you'd expect from the Conran brand. A total of 70 pieces will be available online and in 25 stores across the UK from mid-September.

Although little information about the collection is available online currently, details of all the products are in the M&S Autumn 2011 catalogue which you can pick up in store.

Switched On Set back and updated

Made

Ok, it's not really gone anywhere, but we've not been able to update Switched On Set as much as we'd like in the past - but all that changed from last weekend.

We hope to update everyday now, so if you like the idea of a more contemporary flipside to Retro To Go, check out the site, add to your RSS feeds, sign up the daily mailout, Twitter etc etc. No Facebook, but if people want it, we'll set one up.

The chair above is one of today's finds, it's the latest Made.com design. Check out the site for more on that.

WowHaus website launches - finding interesting property along the way

Wowhaus

I'm not very good at doing nothing. So when I went down with a bug over the weekend, I found myself developing a website idea I've had a for a long time to fill the time. That site has just gone live, going by the name WowHaus.

The idea is simple. Find the most interesting houses and properties on the market. Classic, vintage, retro, modern, run-down, cheap, expensive - any type really and anywhere at all. UK and beyond. We like nosying around houses online, so why not feature the pick of them?

Don't expect a volume of posts each day (like Retro To Go). The site is more of an experiment and will be updated as and when we find interesting houses. But please bookmark it, sign up to the feed or follow the site on Facebook or Twitter to get the latest finds that way. Feedback welcome - it's early days, so we're open to ideas.

River Island relaunch Chelsea Girl range

Chelseagirl2011

Though many high street brands have injected some vintage inspiration into individual pieces of late, it's River Island that's ahead of the pack with their Chelsea Girl range. Taking on the name and image of River Island circa 1965, we loved some of their 2010 items, and the relaunched 2011 fare looks set to impress.

Taking inspiration from the brand's own archive designs, the line offers 60s, 70s and 80s looks with a sprinkling of modern cut and fabric choice. From the original UK fashion chain, expect easy to wear pieces that are unmistakeably retro. Shown above are two of their sixties looks, paving the way for some impressive looks at high street prices.

The line launches in River Island stores and online on the 24th of March, with Selfridges planning an exclusive pop-up shop too.
