Atelier Raff x Sukun
The new ‘Candy Cane’ collection from Atelier Raff has been designed in collaboration with luxury bedlinen brand Sukun. Made using a 400 thread count, 100% fine cotton and completed with a vibrant, ruby red frill border, the collection fuses the Atelier Raff and Sukun aesthetics, as well as both brands’ commitment to put sustainability front and centre. A win for the planet, and for your home.

An expert in creating transformative, beautiful spaces that bring a brand’s ethos to life, she’s now turned her hand to ceramics. Her white chamota clay vessels have a sculptural quality that will be the star of any shelf display, with or without added flowers or foliage. A great gift for interiors fans this Christmas.
Aesthete The Label
As well as sourcing unique vintage pieces that have their own history, the founders of Aesthete The Label stock a number of artists and designers in residence, alongside an evolving and expanding range of contemporary in-house designed products. From marble-swirled trays to smart candle holders, there’s something to suit every interior taste – plus, we appreciate that everything is cruelty free.
Bettina Ceramica has added a range of traditional Italian tablecloths to its covetable collection, as well as a hand-painted ceramic tray and dinner plate. Inspired by the founder’s family linens and time spent browsing antique markets, each piece incorporates an Italian needlework technique known as ‘Punto Tagliato’ – where portions of the linen are cut away then reinforced with intricate embroidery. We also love the 'Barocco' tray, which has been reimagined in contemporary ceramic as opposed to traditional silver.

The Naples plates are handmade in France in collaboration with heritage porcelain maker Leglé, while the napkins and tablecloths are handmade in Italy.
Rosie Sugden x Joshua Ellis
New from cashmere brand Rosie Sugden are these gingham-check cashmere blankets in three on-trend colourways. Woven in her signature vintage four-ply cashmere in a 250-year-old mill, the result is a beautifully soft, classic blanket with a modern twist. Drape yours over the end of a bed or an armchair to make the space feel even more inviting. We love how they’ve been finished with a twisted fringe for textural interest.

The quilted placemats have a delicate ruffled trim that contrasts well with the striped piping edge – layer them with the festive stripe tablecloth or use alone for a simpler look. Finished with a ditsy floral on one side and fun print on the other, you can also use both ways for maximum versatility.
