in the latest issue of blueprint magazine i discovered ruth cross, and her mug and teapot cosies, which i love even though the concept of a :cosy: is kind of granny/crafty. i think these would look amazing in a super-modern/industrial space. unknown to me, she is also the designer of the mr. and mrs. jones juicers which have been on my home wish list for a while.
i also like these creepy looking cups (i'd probably use one to keep pens in on my desk)
i really love chunky knitwear. one of my goals this year is to learn to knit and make some pillow covers and other little projects.
