Apple cushion by Too Much Too Young

Too much apple
We've featured some of their kids sets before but if you're grown-up and want to get a bit of Too Much Too Young's style, take a look at their apple cushion.

The design echos the naivety and 60s/70s style of their designs for children, showing the simple outline of an apple. It's printed onto white cotton with a suitably apple like cushion back. 

A stylish way to get one of your five a day, the cushion costs £25.

Lotta Kuhlhorn pear mugs

Lotta pear

It was only earlier this week we showed you Lotta Kühlhorn's jazzy lindyhop coasters. Here's another design from her, suitable for decorating the retro home, these attractive pear mugs

Like the products featuring her apple design, she uses a simplified, colourful version of the fruit. The pears come in bright pop shades of red, yellow and pink, as well as the more traditional green. Use them them next to your Orla Kiely pear mugs in the kitchen for a very fruity cup of tea. 

The mugs cost £7.25 each.

Violent Elegance’s La Mela-inspired t-shirt


We featured La Mela (The Apple) a while back. Designed by Enzo Mari in 1963, its influence continues to be seen everywhere, not least in these t-shirts from Violent Elegance

The t-shirts feature the same graphic depiction of the apple, right down to the black stalk. The simplicity of the design works well printed onto the white cotton American Apparel t-shirts they've used. Those who are less purist may be interested to know the design is also available with a green apple (different to Mari's original red design). 

The t-shirts cost £26.95.
