Ben de Lisi vintage telephone cushion from Debenhams

Telephone cushion

An unlikely source but this Ben de Lisi designed vintage telephone cushion has a good retro look. Produced as part of the designer's range for Debenhams, the image of a classic dial telephone is printed onto the front of the cushion. 

The telephone is depicted in a vibrant red contrasting to the white background and black piping of the cushion. If you like this, there's an accompanying design featuring another object of vintage affections – the typewriter. 

The cushion is in the Debenhams sale and is currently available for £14.40.

Green Space beach towel by Ben de Lisi at Debenhams

Ben de Lisi beach towel

It's not really the weather to be heading to the beach though if you're lucky enough to be heading off to catch some sun abroad season or just want a retro look to fit in with the rest of your home, you may fancy this Green Space beach towel, part of Ben de Lisi's range at Debenhams.

Like the rest of the range, which includes the Blocks mug featured at end of last year, it's got a distinctively 1950s feel. In fact, looking at its graphic design, if it wasn't a towel you could almost hang on your wall as a piece of art! 

Even better news is that the towel is currently reduced to £9.60.

Ben de Lisi’s 1950s-influenced homeware range for Debenhams

Ben de Lisi mug

Following on from the Jamie Oliver doormat earlier in the week, here's another range of slightly unexpected products: dress designer's Ben de Lisi's homeware range for Debenhams. The whole range is apparently influenced by his love of the 1950s modern movement, resulted in products like the mug pictured above, the 'Blocks mug'. He's also used the same bright colours and pattern on canvas prints. 

There's more tableware available too. Shard is another mug, this time decorated with grey and red slants of colour, while the Chatter collection is a white crockery range, each item trimmed or covered with a colourful brick-like pattern. 

The whole range is definitely worth a browse, with prices starting at £5 for the mug.
