Alto steel waste bin at Habitat
The old school dustbin has long since been replaced by the much-maligned wheelie bin, but you can bring it back (albeit inside your home) with the Alto steel waste bin, available at Habitat.
Nicoll high back chair from Habitat
The latest collection from Habitat features some great retro-inspired items. There's the Wilmot sofa we featured last month and, for seating with a summery feel, take a look at the Nicoll high back chair.
David Mellor Pride cutlery in stainless steel
We've featured the designs of David Mellor on this site before, an 'unsung hero of design in the UK'. Though he worked on many different designs throughout his career, he's best known for his work in metalwork, particularly cutlery. His first, and also one of his most famous designs, Pride, has now been issued for the first time in stainless steel.
Pride was designed back in 1953, when Mellor was a student at the Royal College of Art. It's been in production since the Fifties too, however only in silver plate. It's now been produced in the moderately cheaper stainless steel – retaining the same modern shapes that won the cutlery a place in the Design Centre Awards back in 1957.
Prices start at £7 for a teaspoon and go up to the thousands for some of the canteens.

The bubblerack is one of those treasured things, something practical that also manages to look good. Primarily a coat rack, the retro bubbles shaped design could also double as a piece of wall art. The rack is made from powder coated steel and is available in the suitably sixties colour options of white or orange.
The rack is designed by an American company called Wallter and costs $145.
