Send in the clowns
Dust off your loom – hand-weaving is trendy again. Don’t have the kit? Then check out Rubelli’s Oskar 30129-002 Trevira CS in Paglia, (£118 per m, rubelli.com).
It re-creates the texture of a hand-made Iranian rug and has an organic, irregular finish. Team with an elegant plain in a similar shade, such as Romo’s Asuri 7726/45 linen-mix in Honeycomb,
(£47.50 per m, romo.com). Its subtle sheen will make for a rustic yet luxurious look. It may be named after the white-faced fool, but Alessi’s new Pierrot beech coat stand is no joke. Super-stable and easy to assemble, it’s strong enough to hold up to 30 kilos worth of coats – now there’s a challenge… £165 (alessi.com)
