The Snow Lounge

There’s no sign that our little flurry of snow happened where I live, except for the lone snowman standing confusingly in our garden. It seemed over a little to quickly for my liking. Are you hankering after the snow? If so, you might consider bringing the snow indoors with this Sled Coffee Table & Snow White Rug by Duffy London.

The sled is walnut and birch plywood and with the grooves in the deep snowy rug it could have just slid in from outside. It is £2495 from Duffy London but you can get it for almost a thousand pounds less from Hidden Art Shop. Either way it’s a lot of money for something that would probably only work in winter with log cabin style decor but I’m still hankering…

What do you think of it?

Feeling Fuzzy About Felt

I’m feeling fuzzy about felt at the moment, particularly laser cut felt and especially Michelle Mason’s Stella rug, available in black, cream or purple.

I’m hankering after the cream rug but know it would last all of five minutes in our house before one of the cats threw up on it or a bunch of teenage Goths trampled it with their New Rocks. So until I find a safe place to put it I’ll satisfy my laser cut felt hankering with my bargain £1.95 Enchanted Forest Place Mats from Dot Com Gift Shop.

Yes, they are cream placemats. After I diligently followed the cleaning advice to sponge clean only, I too thought it was a mistake to get cream as they started to look like they might grow legs and take themselves off to the bin in shame. So despite thinking I was sending them to their deaths I spritzed them with Vanish and put them in the washing machine on a cool wool wash and they not only survived but look as good as new. So they are in fact semi-practical. If you’re still not convinced, they’re also available in black or red at £3.95 each.
