Dreaming of foreign climes? Then celebrate places close to your heart or simply enjoy the intricate topographical detail of vintage maps. Use inexpensive maps pasted up print-room style, or cut them up for decoupage and decorations all over the house.

Hot Collectable: Fase desk lamps

Made for the Spanish civil service from the 1950s and thrown away in thousands as a symbol of Franco’s government, Fase lamps were rediscovered by the design world when one appeared on the desk of Don Draper in HBO’s hit series ‘Mad Men’.

Made in Madrid, their UFO bulb housing and signature boomerang base comes in a number of styles and articulation with prices starting at around €300 for a lamp in good condition.
