In spite of my love of the latest advances in technology, I’m rather old-school in that I still write a journal. This time last year I remember opening my brand-new diary, its crisp blue pages blank and practically crackling with the potential of all the plans that lay ahead. The reality, as we all know, was somewhat different. The pages on the whole have stayed empty. With events and gatherings, both large and small, shelved or postponed, it’s been a year when very little has been followed by very little else. However, during the season when festivities would usually be in full swing, no matter how different it feels to normal, I think it’s still crucial to seek out the glimmers of hope and joy, to have some fun, even if…

MAKING WAVES The designer-maker firm, Jan Hendzel Studio, responsible for the finely crafted furniture in some of the country’s coolest spots, from members’ hotel Birch to Hackney Wick eatery Silo, has carved a niche for itself as the design industry’s go-to for innovative bespoke woodwork. ‘Bowater’ is the studio’s first full furniture collection and is a showcase of its unique, sculptural style. Comprising nine pieces made from British timbers, the range includes playful details such as oversized turned handles and rippled surfaces. Sideboard, £3,900 (janhendzel.com). Solar system Part of Natuzzi’s new ‘Circle of Harmony’ collection, Claudio Bellini’s ‘Frost’ coffee tables bring together tinted glass and warm grey Fossena stone in striking geometric compositions. Completing Bellini’s ‘Solar’ range, the design recalls the 1970s with its glamour-tinged brutalist feel. From £2,010 (natuzzi.com). WORK OF ART Cristina Celestino…

push //pull

How did Push//Pull begin? I started selling a few pieces on Ebay seven or eight years ago when my collection outgrew my flat in Newington Green. This led to a few interiors projects, and I started working with Soho House, sourcing all the vintage pieces for their Soho Home range. Are you drawn to anything in particular? Pared-back modernist pieces appeal to me most, but I’m also buying more handmade one-offs. Real homes are always a proper mix of styles and eras. Tell us about your ‘Originals’ range… It’s designed to sit alongside the vintage edit. With the sofas especially we felt there was a gap in the market – people always asked me for vintage ones, which often aren’t as comfy as modern designs. We wanted to produce something of the…

how to buy affordable art

I spend most of my time researching homeware, wading through antiques fairs for a bargain and searching Instagram for interesting new lifestyle designers, so I am over the moon to be sharing my interior findings with you every month. And, to kick off 2021, I’m starting with a look at the world of affordable art. Most of us have, in some way or another, personalised our homes over the past year. Being sat indoors looking at our own four walls has brought out the Sarah Beeny in us all. Buying art is one of the quickest ways to transform your space, but it can also be super-expensive and intimidating. Personally, I’m no expert and can be put off by the jargon around art. However, in the last few years, a wealth…
