Constant Candle Company X Bridget Hemmings
Ceramics artist Bridget Hemmings has created a selection of unique porcelain vessels in a range of colours – all with her signature gold lustre rim – which can now house Constant Candle Company wax refills. Customers can choose the colour of the ceramic and their desired scent – with pre-orders open now.
Barneby Gates Wallpaper
Barneby Gates has released new patterns ahead of the autumn. Painter’s Stripe is a new take on a classic – the wide brush stroke has a painterly feel thanks to the brand’s signature surface printing technique and is flanked by a double row of hand-drawn pin stripes. Meanwhile, Lattice Cane is a small-scale geometric design which works well as a backdrop for a gallery wall or to inject some subtle interest into a space.
Smith & Goat
This independent, family-run business creates beautiful objects made from concrete. Available online and from their Walthamstow store, their scallop trays are a great way to dip your toe into the trend. Those wanting to fully embrace the look should go for one of their shell-shaped sinks or wavy side tables – plus, everything is made to order in a choice of 20 colourways.
Ceraudo Wall Hangings
Embodying the brand’s Italian heritage, these new decorative wall hangings feature an array of plaster bows and plinths, making them a playful way to decorate your walls. While the bows are a sweet addition in any room, the plinths are more versatile and can be used as a bedside table or in a hallway.
A.Prin Art Frames
We’re obsessed with Benedict Foley’s candy-coloured picture frames, new styles of which are now dropping every month. Be sure to keep an eye on his website for the exact dates and times of new releases – for August, we’re loving The Serpentine.
Dulux Turns 90
Dulux is celebrating 90 years of adding colour to people’s homes with the release of a glossy, coffee table book charting the evolution of domestic interior design over the decades. With contributions from a range of experts – not to mention plenty of pictures of the iconic Dulux sheepdog campaigns – all the proceeds will go directly to three chosen charities: The Outward Bound Trust, Rainy Day Trust and Old English Sheepdog Rescue & Welfare.
Host Home Tableware
Designed in London and handmade exclusively for Host in Positano, this new ceramic collection comes in a selection of sunshine and sorbet-inspired shades perfect for al fresco dining. Mix and match the floral and scallop designs to create the kind of table setting that epitomises summer.
By Anna Elizabeth Ottoman
Upholsterer and lampshade maker By Anna Elizabeth usually only takes on bespoke commissions, but she’s also created a small number of original designs to sell through her Instagram. The Bobbin Ottoman can be made in any size, shape and colour, and even using the client’s own choice of fabric – although there’s also stock available of this eye-catching pink and green combination.

Matthew Williamson X Obeetee
Interior designer Matthew Williamson and rug manufacturer Obeetee have collaborated on a new collection. Translating Matthew’s unique way with colour and pattern into rug designs for the very first time, the collection is inspired by the natural world and sun-steeped landscapes. There are eight designs in various sizes and shapes, including rectangular and circular rugs and runners.
Kam Ce Kam Furniture
Founded in 2019, Kam Ce Kam is a furniture and interiors brand encapsulating innovative design and traditional manufacturing methods. Designs incorporate age-old techniques, such as cane weaving and stone carving, but also include creative, contemporary styles using natural and sustainably sourced materials. We love the elegant and simple chairs, and marble-topped cabinets.
A new homeware brand was launched in July by Livvy Wentworth-Stanley, Arbala offers a range of not-so-predictable homewares, many of which involve collaborations with local craftsmen, mixing and matching traditional techniques with a touch of contemporary style. For us, the standout has to be the wicker stool in the natural colourway.
Kelly Jessiman Ceramics
Made at her kitchen table and fired in her backyard, Kelly’s functional pieces make for joyful home additions. The blue and white candlesticks in chequerboard and stripe motifs are a fun way to brighten up a mantlepiece or bare shelf.
The Lorfords Vintage Cloth Collection
This new seating range from Lorfords Contemporary is made using sustainable materials, processes and practices. Reflecting founder Toby Lorford’s belief that sustainable, handmade, durable furniture should become integral to the design world to allow it to adapt to a growing environmental responsibility, the result is a collection of earthy colours with unique woven textures.
