When we say garden or conservatory furniture, put any idea of white plastic and wicker monstrosities out of your head. Instead say hello to the Faulks Sofa by Conran for M&S.
With the imminent arrival of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, another flurry of vintage street parties will no doubt follow.
Ever fancied getting your humble abode styled by the master of British mid century design Terence Conran but don't have a totally limitless budget? Never fear, the series of Essential books by Terence Conran are here!
Marks and Spencer might be last on most people's list of places to look for a vampish retro look, but you can count yourself pleasantly surprised thanks to this Stripe Jersey Dress from their new collection. Taking inspiration from an early sixties style, this is a dress to turn heads.
The jersey fabric is the ideal choice to enhance the wiggle dress style of this piece, with the contrasting stripe and black panelling creating killer curves too. The high slashed neckline ideally balances a slinky fitted bodice, while capped sleeves add some youthful appeal.
It's now available from Marks and Spencer for £45.
Always fancied yourself as a bit of a star from the golden age of cinema? While that may not be a very realistic daydream, you can at least capture some of the glamour from that era with this Hollywood floor lamp from Marks and Spencer.
The lamp mimics the look of an old-fashioned spotlight with its large metal round shade and tripod legs. Top that off with the chrome finish and surely – at least in lighting terms – you will be ready for your close-up.
The lamp costs £99.
