An Aimsir print by Maria Atanackovic.

Damn fine day

Glorious printing here by Maria Atanackovic. It’s called An Aimsir and is part of a collection by a range of artists, who all made work in response to the joys of an Irish summer. This 11-colour hand-pulled screen print (420mm x 594mm) is one of an edition of 10, signed by the artist. It costs €160 from damnfineprint.ie.

Keep in trim

Lawn-mower robots are the way of the future and the Husqvarna Automower® now responds to voice commands. Use Amazon’s Alexa to speak to it, change its schedule, or to ask it where it’s already mowed. This is helicopter parenting for domestic devices! Prices from €2,650, for stockists see husqvarna.ie.

These bud vases are made from the test tubes from an old science lab with salvaged copper pipe and brass fittings. Use them the conventional way, by placing the flowers in water, or fill them with dried flowers (€35 for a set of three from kopperkreation.com).

Cover up

Before you change the chair, consider changing the cover. Chair FX is an Irish company based on Gorey, Co Wexford, that offers a range of chair covers for dining chairs and sofas. This one’s in mustard yellow and designed to fit a bar-stool type chair. At €12.50, it’s much cheaper than reupholstering. See chairfx.com.
