Ceramic retro tattoo-style heart shaped box


This unusual ceramic heart shaped box features a retro tattoo-style design. The lid is covered with the words 'love forever' alongside all the emblems you'd expect from a traditional tattoo: a bleeding heart, birds, cupid. However, it's all rendered in white porcelain with a matt finish, rather than in pen and ink. 

The box is much bigger than you might think too, measuring 30cm x 28cm, and making it quite a declaration of love for your home. 

It's priced at £69.

Stig Lindberg Aster porcelain


You'll probably recognise Stig Lindberg's Bersa porcelain design with its distinctive leaf motif. However, Gustavsberg also have reissued another of Lindberg's works from the 1970s, the Aster design.

Looking equally as Scandinavian cool, the cup features a large floral pattern in either red or blue against white. And, like the Bersa, it doesn't come cheap either. A coffee cup will set you back the equivalent of  $80.
