Klaus Haapaniemi was not a name I was aware of (nor is it one that trips easily from the tongue), but the artist looks to have an interesting textile range with products like this Blue Rabbit Cushion.
Mention Lucienne around these parts and chances are we'll be thinking of Lucienne Day. That's certainly the case in this Lucienne and Company tea towel from Papa Stour, which is named after the designer.
The Opinio 360 table lamp makes no secret of its Space Age influences.
If you are looking for a retro twist on traditional tableware, Iittala have released their classic Kastehelmi Collection in grey just in time for Christmas.
Iittala’s Maribowl is a classic of Finnish design, having been in production since the 1960s, and also has associations with that other great Finnish design company, Marimekko, as its founder , Armi Ratia, made the bowls even more desirably by using them at her famous garden parties.
Perhaps some of the Maribowl’s continued popularity is that it works as either a decorative item or a functional serving bowl – I’m picturing it filled with a huge ice cream sundae. It is available in a variety of different colours with the price being dependent on how difficult it to manufacture glass in that colour, red being the most tricky pigment to use.
Prices range from £16 for smaller Maribowls in shades of blue, green and grey through to £49 for a deep red colour, with shades of yellow, orange and brown priced somewhere in between, at Hus and Hem.
