Simple pleasures: Falcon enamelware

23 Aug

When I was a child we had a set of Falcon enamel mugs for camping, bought from the village hardware store. I’ve loved the oh-so-simple style ever since. But while those in the know realised the white and blue designs were a style staple long ago, it seems that Falcon themselves have only just caught onto their cult status. After 91 years as a household favourite they’ve finally kitted themselves out with a smart new website, contemporary re-brand and some lovely new photography.

Feast your eyes on this.

I love it when old fashioned brands get a new lease of life. Some everyday items deserve to be hailed as design classics and it’s good to see that Falcon are not only giving their existing range a push, they’re launching some new products too – keep an eye out for the prep sets and tumblers (lovely for serving hot chocolate, ice cream or even popcorn) – on their way soon.

Tokyo drift

Today I am loving these Paris Tokyo cushion covers from The Conran Shop. Not cheap at £69 each but you could probably convince yourself you’re getting two countries for the price of one…
