Kaico enamel milk pan 

My husband Mikhail gave me this milk pan for Christmas last year. I use it every week for one thing or another - for me that makes it the perfect present.






Anglepoise Type 75 Mini

I've had one of these lamps on my desk for five years and I love it. Elegant and a beautiful dusty colour.



Hario glass teapot

I use one of these teapots every single day to steep my fresh ginger tea.

Claska bath towel

We stay at The Claska Hotel every time we are in Tokyo and these towels from their Do Store are great.



Arnold Circus Stool

Martino Gamper's Arnold Circus Stools not only look great but are very durable. We use them in our staff room and they give character to what would otherwise be quite a simple space.
