Arnold Pendant Light

Arnold Pendant Light

Revive your lighting with this Arnold Pendant Light, £49.

While I often write about things I love that we have here on Furnish, I rarely write about things I have bought. So this “Fab Find” kinda changes all that as I’ve recently purchased the rather fabulous Arnold Pendant Light by made.com.

I’d been on the hunt for a new pendant light to go above my dining room table and this striking Arnold light caught my eye. It combines simple white shades with bright red flex to create a simple yet eye-catching and very effective piece.

The perfect addition to my dining space, my Arnold is still in its box waiting for an electrician to come and fit it, but I’ll post a picture as soon as it’s up.

Colour Watch: Hot Pink and Teal

Some gorgeous hot pink and teal pieces

Be bold and brave with the daring combination of teal and hot pink.

Not for the faint hearted, this week’s colour combination takes its inspiration from bold and beautiful Designers Guild fabrics which started firmly putting colour-phobes in their place many moons ago.

A daring pairing, these striking colours just seem to work together, particularly when teamed with a neutral backdrop. Here at Furnish, we have lots of gorgeous items in these colours from furniture to accessories to really make your scheme pop with colour.

For the brave, a piece of teal furniture will instantly lift your room and we have some great pieces available. This Bedside Teal and Silver Cabinet by Shimu offers just enough Eastern style without being too over the top, while the Vintage Teal Armchair by Alexander and Pearl is a must for retro lovers.

When it comes to this colour combination, it’s important to go for the boldest shade of pink you can bear – that way it really pops against the teal. For a bold bedroom, try adding this Passion Pink Full Length Mirror by The French Bedroom Company or breathe life into a tired, plain wall with this Butterfly Clock in Fuchsia by Red Candy.

Optic White Gloss Desk

Work in style with this Optic White Gloss Desk, £375.18.

If you work from home, like I do much of the time, you’ll know how important it is to have a good desk.

Aside from being far better for working at than balancing a laptop while sitting on the sofa, having a dedicated workspace definitely makes me more efficient and takes away the temptation to have a sneaky peek at Murder She Wrote.

We have a great selection of desks here at Furnish but one of my favourites is this Optic White Gloss Desk by Neofurn.

Sleek and stylish, it has a generous top which is perfect for spreading out, while the elegant curves mean you’ll be pleased to sit at this desk and get on with your work.

Metal Storage Trunk

Get your storage sorted with one of these Metal Storage Trunks, from £99.

Despite having lots of storage space, I also seem to have lots of clutter.

I confess to being a hoarder and have only recently been able to part with copies of the magazine I worked on almost 10 years ago. So a massive clear out is on the cards.

As such I’ve been on the hunt for some stylish storage solutions to make sure I can find everything when I need to.

We have a huge choice available here at Furnish from baskets and boxes to blanket and storage chests.

These Metal Storage Trunks by Bodie and Fou are just the ticket and, as they’re so stylish, you won’t mind them being on show.

Strictly Studded Floor Mirror, £495, from The French Bedroom Company

Create a stunning focal point with this Strictly Studded Floor Mirror from The French Bedroom Company, £495.

In my book, mirrors are absolutely essential in the home. Yes, of course you need to know what you look like before you leave the house, but they offer so much more than just being somewhere to preen yourself.

A gloomy hallway can be instantly lifted, and a plain wall can be brought to life with the simple addition of a mirror.

I’m a sucker for those bevelled edge 1930s style mirrors, but have also fallen for this rather gorgeous Strictly Studded Floor Mirror from The French Bedroom Company.

Impressive by its size alone, this full length mirror features a subtle studded edge which adds interest and will turn it into a striking focal point for any room.

Bin your rubbish beautifully with this Rock and Roll Trash in White from The French Bedroom Company, £95.

Let’s face it – bins aren’t exactly the most glamorous of interiors objects, and are often chosen for their functionality, tending to be practical rather than stylish.

However, here at Furnish we believe you deserve both form and function which is why we’re smitten with this Rock and Roll Trash in White from The French Bedroom Company.

Far from being dull, this classic pedal bin has been brought to life with ornate handles which means that rather than hiding it away, you’ll be proud to have it on display.
