Ikea's reasonable prices and love of good design extends into prints as well as the rest of the home. This season's offering have a great retro flavour, including this Fish Supper poster which features a design by, often-featured on this site, Jane Foster.
We're still recovering from Christmas but things to mark Valentine's Day are starting to creep into the shop. Whether you're ready for that or not, Jane Foster's Valentine-inspired Love Grows print is sure to look good whatever time of the year it is.
Jane Foster's bright and cheerful retro textiles and designs are always a delight, and her new London print doesn't disappoint.
It uses a very simple design to illustrate London: Big Ben, the London Eye and a London bus. The print is enlivened by the application of some of her colourful 1960s/70s patterns to the outline of the objects making London suddenly look like a lot happier place. There's also a similar print available of Paris, showing a Citroen 2CV parked outside the Eiffel Tower.
A 40 x 50cm print will set you back £14.99.

Jane Foster's designs are no strangers on this site. So it's no surprise that when she designs something as simple as this Tilda doll kit, she injects a bit of retro style into that too.
Like the Clothkitty doll of old, it's a flat design printed onto linen cotton you then sew together and stuff yourself. Less stuffy than your average doll though – this design with her long hair and stripy Breton dress is a bit Jane Birkin-esque or, at the very least, the doll looks like she dresses with some 60s style.
The doll kit costs £20.

We've featured many of Jane Foster's designs on this site before which all draw heavily on her love of vintage fabrics and retro patterns. It's now easier than ever to get a piece of her style, with her new dedicated vintage cushion website.
The Jane Foster store has always sold cushions that she'd made from found fabric alongside her own designs. Re-using vintage material as cushion covers is certainly not a unique idea but Foster's great eye for a good pattern leads for a fantastic range to pick from, mostly dating from the 50s, 60s and 70s. If your sofa is looking a little dreary this colourful store will have something to liven it up instantly. She'll even take commissions.
Prices for the cushions range roughly between £15 and £30, depending on the rarity of the fabric used.
