Christian Lacroix New York Eagle Cushion

Add a touch of city style with this Christian Lacroix New York Cushion, £90.

I’m off to New York in less than six weeks and I can barely hide my excitement. In fact, I’m constantly annoying my nearest and dearest with updates on just how long there is to go before I step onto Manhattan Island.

Having done all the touristy things on my last visit, I’ve promised myself time to scour all the fabulous interiors shops so I come back with some goodies for my home.

One store I’m definitely popping by is Christian Lacroix, so it’s rather fitting that I’ve come across this Christian Lacroix New York Eagle Cushion by Amara Living.

This gorgeous silk cushion features a graffiti eagle with an intricately patterned reverse, and is the perfect way to add some colour and pattern to a sofa or armchair.

Add some shimmer to your storage with this Set of 3 Silver Baskets, £40.04.

I’m always looking for new storage ideas for my jewellery and those smaller bits and bobs that I don’t want on show, so I was delighted to come across this gorgeous Set of 3 Silver Baskets by ALSO Home.

Handmade in Vietnam, these three boxes are crafted from bamboo, come in varying sizes and have been given a touch of glamour thanks to their silver finish.

Ideal for the bedroom, these elegant boxes would look fabulous on a dressing table yet would also look great in the living room.

Droog Do Frame Tape

Get crafty with this Droog Do Frame Tape, £12.95.

Since learning how to sew properly, I’ve gone craft crazy. The only problem is I need to have a rest from cushion making otherwise no-one will be able to sit on my sofa without throwing them on the floor.

So, given my cushion hiatus, I’ve been looking for something else to occupy my time, and I’m thrilled to have come across this Droog Do Frame Tape by Dutch by Design.

Designed to resemble a Baroque-style frame, this clever decorative tape takes the hassle out of having to get your posters and pictures framed.

You simply add the tape to the edges of your favourite pieces of artwork and voila – beautifully framed pictures.

Some of our favourite tealight and candle holders

Cosy up during the dark evenings with our fantastic selection of candle holders.

While spring will soon be here and the dark nights are starting to get shorter, we still have a few weeks to get through (but seriously – enough of this rain).

Modern lighting can be harsh, but candlelight gives any room a softening glow from the living room to a candlelit bath.

We have some gorgeous candle holders here at Furnish from simple tea light holders to elegant candelabras.

If you want to inject some colour into your scheme, these Butterfly tea light holders by Lifestylebazaar are perfect, while the Green Chunky Tea Light Holder by Artstar is just right for adding a touch of glamour to a mantelpiece.

And if you're looking to create a stunning centrepiece, then this Menu Double Candle Holder by Red Candy is ideal for creating an elegant dining table, and is also available in black, white and stainless steel.

While we’re deadly serious about our interiors here at Furnish, even we like the odd bit of fun, a little bit of quirkiness, which is why I’ve fallen for this Wise Owl Side Table by The French Bedroom Company.

Crafted from white glazed ceramic, this super cool side table resembles a giant owl ornament, which is ideal if you like playing with scale when it comes to furnishing your home.

This little chap makes the ideal bedside table with plenty of room to keep all your bedtime necessities close at hand, and would also make a welcome addition in a kitsch-influenced living space.

Gold Cushion

Embrace the metallic trend with this Gold Cushion, £55.

Metallics were big on the catwalks of New York, Milan, Paris and London, so it makes sense that this is one of the hottest trends in interiors at the moment.

From copper lighting to silver embossed candle holders, everything has been given a glamorous touch.

If you’re looking for an easy way to tap into this trend, then look no further than this simple yet ever-so gorgeous Gold Cushion by Artstar.

Ideal for pepping up a tired sofa or armchair, this cushion will also look equally as good teamed with crisp, white bed linen.

The writing's on the wall

Treat your walls to a makeover with our wordy wall art.

If your walls are a little lacking in interest, then a wall sign or some written artwork is the perfect way to spruce them up and give them a new look.

They are perfect if you want a change but are not ready to commit to wallpaper or a new paint colour.

Romantics will love these LOVE Ceramic Letters by The Orchard which make the perfect wedding or anniversary present, while the Fabulous Sign by Signs For Homes is great for adding a touch of diva to any room.

And, if your spirits are in need of a little lift, then this Happiness is a Way of Life - Shabby Chic Sign by Fields of Blue should do the job.

Velvet Boudoir Chair

Purple Velvet Boudoir Chair

Enjoy comfort and colour in your bedroom with this Velvet Boudoir Chair, £350.

I have always thought that having an armchair in your bedroom is the height of luxury.

It means you must have a decent sized space in order to accommodate one, and it rather suggests you have time to lounge around in your bedroom. Unfortunately I have neither!

But if I did, the chair for me would definitely be the Velvet Boudoir Chair by Primrose & Plum.

Green Velvet Boudoir Chair

I love the elegant shape and velvet upholstery (available in rich purple or bright green) and, as regular readers will know, I can’t resist a button back when it comes to chairs.

Of course, this would also work brilliantly in a living room, hallway or landing.

Kara Nest of Tables

Add sleek, contemporary lines to your living room with this Kara Nest of Tables, £930.

Now that I’m a grown up (!) people tend to buy me things for the home at Christmas. One of my favourite Christmas presents this year was a beautiful Vintage G Plan nest of tables from my parents, which has made me realise just how useful and versatile nests of tables are.

We have all sorts and styles of nesting and side tables here at Furnish but one that’s really caught my eye is this rather wonderful Kara Nest of Tables by Tom Schneider.

Simple yet beautifully curvaceous, they have been lovingly crafted and are available in six wood options from pale maple to dark and dramatic wenge.

Fonteyn Drinks Trolley

Enjoy some retro style with this Fonteyn Drinks Trolley, from £239.

Regular readers will know I’m a big fan of occasional furniture and, at the moment, I have my eyes on this rather fabulous Fonteyn Drinks Trolley by made.com.

Deliciously retro, this Steuart Padwick piece has got Mad Men style written all over it.

Sadly, I don’t host enough cocktail parties to warrant a drinks trolley but this would also be a fab alternative as a kitchen trolley. Available in walnut with red, or oak with blue accents, this simple yet luxurious trolley has handy wheels which make it both beautiful and practical.

Branch Hat and Coat Hook, £129, from Lifestylebazaar

Keep your hallway tidy with this Branch Hat and Coat Hook from Lifestylebazaar, £129.

I love living in a 70s townhouse, but the one thing that’s missing is an actual hallway which makes storing coats a bit of a problem. While I’d love a freestanding coat rack or stand, sadly there simply isn’t room, but I’m thrilled with this stylish alternative from Lifestylebazaar.

Available in black, white and natural oak, this hat and coat hook has been designed to look like a tree branch with handy “twigs” on which to hang your belongings.

And as it’s wall-mountable it’s perfect for those who are short on space, and is great for adding interest to a plain wall.
