Peter’s Friday Favourites

The clocks are going back, the blankets are coming out of storage and the heater’s being switched on for the first time in months. It’s getting chillier every day – which we think is great news, because we love cosying up for the winter!

Welcome to our latest edition of Friday Favourites, where every week, we take a look at five of our favourite new arrivals. This week, we’ve got a few products that are perfect for getting ready for the colder weather to hit – whether it’s rugging up on the couch or getting out into the garden to plant that herb garden you’ve always talked about, now’s the perfect time, and we’ve got exactly what you need…

iittala Kastehelmi Candle Holderiittala Kastehelmi Votive Candle Holder

Kaste-what? It’s kastehelmi, and it’s the Finnish word for “dewdrop”. One look at the Kastehelmi Votive Candle Holder’s distinctive pattern of dewy dots and you’ll see why. This cute little candle holder is new from Finnish designers, iittala, and it’s exactly what you’ve been looking for to add a sense of warmth and comfort to your favourite room. After all, it’s the little things that set your home apart – the simple touches of luxury here and there that express your unique personality. And this beautifully-detailed votive candle holder is certainly loaded with character! Just wait until you take a look at the rest of the Kastehelmi collection

Linen and Moore Pasha

Linen and Moore Pasha Throw Rug

Seriously, how cosy and comfortable do Linen and Moore’s new Pasha Throw Rugs look? They’re made from softer-than-soft cotton, with tasselled ends and a detailed herringbone pattern that reminds us of a big, warm, woolly jumper. Wrap yourself up in this generously-sized throw rug and send winter chills packing – in style, of course! When it’s not cold, your Pasha Throw Rug will look lovely simply folded over the arm of your couch, draped over an armchair or sitting at the end of your bed. Plus, it’s available in a heap of different colours! Wonderfully warm and good looking, Linen and Moore’s Pasha Throw Rug has it all.

Robert Gordon Pot of Gold Mug Set

Robert Gordon Pot of Gold Mug Set

For those with a flair for the dramatic, Robert Gordon’s new Pot of Gold Mugs are the ultimate. Combining deep, enticing matte black and shiny gold, these mugs really know how to steal the show. We’ve already written one post here on the Peter’s Blog about how much we love metallic finishes…and we’ve also written about our favourite retro-inspired products. Looking at these elegant mugs, we think these mugs would fit onto both lists perfectly! Fill these mugs with coffee or tea and they’ll warm you up on cold winter mornings…

Georg Jensen Cobra Glasses

Georg Jensen Cobra Dinnerware

We know – Georg Jensen featured in our last edition of Friday Favourites! We don’t mean to sound like a stuck record, but when we saw Georg Jensen’s new Cobra collection of dinnerware and glassware, we couldn’t resist showing it off. Like the rest of Georg Jensen’s Cobra range, every piece in the range uses snake-like curves to achieve an effect that’s utterly charming. It’s tableware with a twist.
