This Eames Elephant Mouse Mat wasn’t actually designed by the famous design duo as their designing days were over before the need for mouse mats arose.
It was designed by Hella Jonerius for Vitra, but taking inspiration from Eames’ famous plywood elephants. It is made from the high quality soft leather that Vitra use to upholster their sofas and is available in a choice of black or snow (an off-white shade).

More retro kitsch courtesy of Urban Outfitters and this retro TV mouse mat.
Printed with an image of an old telly, complete with dials and mock-wood encasing, it helps you remember what we used to spend our lives looking at before computer screens and the onset of the digital age. It certainly brings back some fond memories for me of thumping the telly, desperately trying to get a picture.
This slice of nostalgia costs £6
