Sharpen up

This desk tidy comes in the shape of a supersize pencil sharpener. Even better, it's made from highly sustainable rubberwood. It costs €22.75 for a single sharpener in light or dark wood, and €38.50 for this double version from suck.uk.com.

Head spin

The Vibrant Mandala clock (€33.86) is designed by Michelle Arena for ArtWow, a company that allows artists to upload their designs onto a variety of products. If you're not an artist, you can still create one-off personalised products (see artwow.co).

In the groove

There's a mesmerising quality to the deep carved rings around the base of the Vaucluse Lamp, designed by Rebecca and Rhona Roe of Hedgeroe Home. The lamp (48 cm high) also comes in a bleached wood finish and costs €205 from hedgeroe.com.

Vintage vinyl

The Eclectic E10N (€69 to €369) is a floor mat made from a thick sheet of printed vinyl. Because it's more easily moved than a real tile floor, this is a good one for renters. When you move house, you roll it up and take it with you (see beijaflorworld.com).

Keen as mustard

Mustard yellow is everywhere this summer. If the Coleman's bright version is too strong for your palate, try it in softer Dijon mustard tones. This one's the Mustard Velvet Ibex Chair with golden metal legs and it costs €790 from lambdesign.ie.
