Clover coasters from Pryl design


These clover coasters from Pryl design are almost too eyecatching for resting your cup of tea on.  

Designed by Julia Nielsen for the Swedish company, the classic four leaf clover is transformed into a psychedelic design which looks like it has been drawn from the late 1960s, rather than 2011. The clover design comes in three eye-popping colours, all printed onto triangular laminated birchwood – perfect for cheering up a dull table or desktop. 

A set of three costs £12.

Plum Flower Dress from Fred Flare


The warmer weather can often mean that fitted fashion is the last thing you'll want to wear during the day. The stylish and practical solution is all in the fabric choice, however, as shown in this Plum Flower Dress by Fred Flare.

Taking a structured shape inspired by fifties daywear, the use of a light fabric and slightly loosened fit means this won't be as restrictive as many retro reproduction pieces. The plum floral fabric is a nod to the Hawaiin tropical influence found in American fashion at the time, too.
