Elle Deco Sanna Annukka mug for Shelter

Shelter mug

Good cause, great design and an opportunity for a nice cup of tea – what's not to like about the Elle Deco Sanna Annukka mug produced to raise money for Shelter

One of several artists asked by Elle Deco to contribute to this project to raise money for the charity, Sanna Annukka's folk-inspired designs are no stranger to this site and this limited edition mug reflects her style. Apparently she looked to summer flowers for her inspiration and it has translated into a bold decorative design, with the red and black looking striking against the white of the Churchill mug, as well as reflecting the colours of the Shelter logo. 

The other mugs in the set have a more contemporary feel with designs by Stephen Jones and Richard Woods. 

The mugs cost £7 each with 50% of the selling price going to Shelter.

John Lewis revival mugs

Pots and mugs

We've featured the John Lewis Revival furniture range previously including its mid-century inspired sideboard. You can now get the mugs to go with the furniture too, with their Revival mug range

Like the furniture, the designs are very much influenced by the 1950s and 60s, such as with the Pots and Pans mug pictured which features sketchily drawn ceramics. The other mugs are covered in more naturally inspired designs with the elm leaf and the seed mug.

Each mug costs £5.
