If you've ever shopped for tiles, you'll know how difficult it is to find anything other than plain shades. So we're glad to see the launch of these geometric wall and floor tiles by Lindsey Lang.
There's been masses of publicity – and products – around the Underground's 150th anniversary – we featured Horace Taylor's Brightest London reissue earlier in the week. But, perhaps the best tie-in yet is Fired Earth's London Underground collection based on some of the Tube's best tilework.
More "wish you had this?" than "wish you were here", Welbeck Tiles sell gorgeous gift tiles based on vintage Cornish postcards.
A clever trompe l'oeil print creates the effect of vintage aged tiles without the hassle of cement and grout and the paper used is tough enough to be used in place of ceramics. The design incorporates original Victorian tiles but with the addition of hand-drawn flowers for a contemporary twist.
The tiles in the design measure 17.5 x 17.5cm
This design is one of ten, all printed on to hard-wearing paper sourced from managed forests. The paper costs £20 a metre.

After the Keith Haring stickers we featured last month, Ikea have offered up some more designs: the Marhult decoration stickers.
The designer of these designs is unknown but the stickers show food stuffs such as ice-cream, cherries and pineapple, all depicted in a bright retro palette and a suitably Scandinavian flavour. These stickers are suitable for using on tiles so – if they're to your taste – they're perfect for brightening up a kitchen.
The stickers cost £5.99.
