I spotted this whilst browsing a catalogue a short while back. The first thing I noticed was the look of this vintage-style tripod metal floor lamp at Argos, which looked really impressive in a 'real' setting. The second thing was the price – and how low it was.
Never quite sure how effective these things actually are as mirrors, but as a piece of period design, this French midcentury sunburst metal and wood mirror is certainly worth a look.
These Dear Mats from The Original Metal Box Company are a perfect gift for any beer drinking design lovers out there.
The Surpil SL10 chair designed by Julien Henri-Porché has a long history, dating back to 1927, but came from a very practical need.
It was designed foremost for functionality: suitable for use in public spaces and also able to be stacked. Made from metal, the choice of material reflects the need for practicality. However, the chair still manages to look elegant and worthy perhaps of something more than outdoor furniture.
The price would suggest so too: it costs £228.

We've featured quite a few pineapple inspired home accessories and this Wall Sconce from Shoreditch boutique Caravan is unlikely to be the last thanks to the kitsch appeal of this tropical fruit.
The pineapple takes centre stage, flanked on either side with an elegant candle holder. The metallic brass finish is particularly well set off by the turquoise candles pictured above. Measuring a substantial 52cm x 42cm x 15cm it would make a great feature for a retro lounge or hallway.
The Wall Sconce is yours for £89 – if you can't make it to the shop then you can buy it here.
Some time back, we highlighted the rather cool wall signs featuring Sir Peter Blake's I Love London and I Love Recycling design. Well, even better, there are now giant metal prints of the designs available – but in very limited numbers.
Printed onto recycled tin (to fit in with the theme), each one is signed and numbered by the artist, with the London print limited to 75, while the Recycling print is in a run of just 25, both sized at 62 x 81cm – the largest tin prints Blake has ever produced.
