Tulip Dishcloth from Klippan
We frequently feature tea towels on this site, but dish clothes are a little bit rarer (probably with good reason). This Tulip Dishcloth from Klippan is possibly only the fourth such item we’ve featured.
The retro tulip design was created by Lotta Glave (one half of the Swedish design team Bengt & Lotta). It is available in a choice of colours, either shades of blue or red/yellow/green. Each dish cloth costs £2.44, which is undoubtedly more than you’d pay for a normal pack of cloths, but cheap enough if you want to add that final finishing touch to a totally retro kitchen.
Buy them from the Scandinavian Design Center.
Klippan fish tray
There seem to have been a lot of fish on this site recently, from Marianne Westman's My Garden tray to the Jonathan Adler plate. Here's another slice of retro fish style, the Klippan fish tray.
The tray is designed by Bengt & Lotta, who frequently pop up on this site, and is typical of their fun and graphic style, which frequently references traditional Scandinavian folk art. The tray is covered in fish of all sizes and shapes, decorated in different patterns and colours.
The tray costs £18.95.

Klippan Flower Power Cushion
A bright and cheerful design as befits this sunny day!
The Klippan Flower Power Cushion uses a pattern by Swedish designer Lotta Glave. It features retro-style flowers in red, orange, green and yellow with its name adding to its 60s feeling. It measures 45cm square and is made from a linen mix material.
The cushion costs just shy of £24 from Interior Addict.
