I can take or leave a lot of the modern-day Alessi designs, but the vintage pieces are another matter. Often timeless and modernist-inspired, they mix functionality with style for a price that doesn’t necessarily break the bank. This Alessi Citrus Basket is a typical example.

Dating back to 1952, it’s the work an Ufficio Tecnico design in mirror-polished steel, with plenty of room for your fruit of choice. And even when the fruit runs out, it’s good enough to display around your living room.

Yours for £72.
