This month, we’re ex­cited about pa­tri­otic paints, min­i­mal­ist table­ware and Ladurée’s mouth­wa­ter­ing mac­arons

A tough-luxe aes­thetic influenced by ma­chin­ery and mo­tor­cy­cles has won Brit la­bel Buster + Punch a cult fol­low­ing. Founder Mas­simo Buster Mi­nale sums up its style as ‘re­fined re­bel­lion’, re­flect­ing the brand’s obsession with pre­ci­sion en­gi­neer­ing. It shouldn’t come as much sur­prise then that its lat­est launch, Pop­star, is a leather-clad gin bar – suc­ces­sor to the 2013 Rockstar whisky bar (which, ru­mour has it, was de­signed for a Rolling Stone). Yet that’s not to say Buster + Punch is strictly for the mu­sic glit­terati. ‘Our cus­tomers want to in­vest in home fit­tings that tell a story beyond their func­tion, spend­ing a lit­tle ex­tra to stand out from the crowd,’ ex­plains Mi­nale. Con­sider the solid oak body, mar­ble ‘mix­ing’ plat­form, quilted back panel and bronze light fit­ting and we think you’ll feel ad­e­quately showy. So there’s one way to toast the New Year in good taste.
