There's something of the popsicle about the colour range of Ikea's new Sommar wine glasses. They're made of polypropylene plastic so you can bounce them off the floor and cost €4 for a set of six from ikea.com.
With the silhouette of an ape at one end and homo sapiens at the other - and your books in between - the Evolution Bookends are a hoot. They're made from iron and cost €25.44 from redcandy.co.uk.
Life in the fast lane
Designer Sacha Lakic likes luxury cars and fast motorbikes - and you can kind of tell. This is the high-backed version of his Edito armchair (€2,060) for Roche Bobois and it looks like it's missing a gear stick. See roche-bobois.com.
The pattern of this Meena Tribe Triangle cushion is inspired by the intricate marble carvings of the Alhambra palace. It's hand-embroidered in white against a warm mustard background and costs €110 from hedgeroe.com.
My cup of tea
Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic embraces the trend for things that go together but don't quite match. This is the green version of the Paisley mug (€8 from dunnesstores.com). It comes in different colours and patterns, but the shape is consistent.
