Cut a dash
The trouble with cut crystal is that it’s massively pricey and needs to be hand-washed. These grey Diamond glasses are both colourfast and dishwasher-safe. They come from the new Irish online store Lil & Co Home, founded in 2021 by Laura Gaffney and Ciara Doyle (€72 for a set of six from lilandcohome.com).

Sweet repose
Bistro sets look gorgeous but the cheaper versions can be flimsy. Not this lot! They’re made of powder coated steel so they won’t blow away and land on your neighbour’s car. Store them in the shed for the winter. The table costs €180 and the chairs are €150 apiece from orianab.com.

Bare bulb
A cage pendant fitting is just crying out for one of those Edison-style filament bulbs that LED technology can now mimic so cleverly. This one’s a bargain and costs €39.99 from Homesense (see homesense.ie for store details).
