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

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.
