A new study has been reported this week that claims tea has health benefits. So we’ll all be drinking more tea until another study contradicts it next week, but in the meantime, why not serve your tea in style, with Alvar Aalto’s Tea Trolley.

Introduced at the Paris World Fair back in 1937, it was based on a design created for a tuberculosis sanatorium, but this version was updated for domestic use.

It is available to buy online from Bauhaus 2 Your House, priced $2,359 (approximately £1,200). Admittedly that is a lot of money for a trolley, but the greatness of this one has been recognised by MoMA who have a one in their permanent collection.
