Brass tables that look like crochet, a brutalist sideboard and a magnificent stone bath. These are the products that caught my eye this week
The Il Granito natural stone bathroom collection is now available in the UK from West One Bathrooms. Produced in Belgium, each piece is handcrafted and includes seven different designs available in 11 different stones including travertino and verde alpi. Wow!
Les Naturels collection, new from Arte, takes inspiration from the natural and irregular texture of raffia, sisal and woven grass to create wallcoverings that bring warmth and interest to walls. As well as bold prints, Les Naturels includes textured plains in a calming colour palette of stone, terracotta and sage green.
Allegra Hicks has launched a new capsule collection available exclusively from The Invisible Collection. The Crochet Collection of occasional tables is made in bronze but looks like soft crochet. Handmade using the lost wax technique the pieces are cast at a foundry in Naples.
For AW 23, Studio Atkinson has launched Noughts & Crosses oak furniture entirely made in the UK and inspired by an antique bamboo dining table sourced by Susie at a French market many years ago. By contrast, glossy Two Tone lacquer side tables have also been added to the collection inspired by the rich colours and stripes found in Liquorice Allsorts.
Terra is a bold collection of wallcoverings from Masureel taking inspiration from vessels and structures created from natural clay. Sculptural forms are replicated in natural shades of charcoal and burnt earth punctuated by splashes of intense colour. For this collection Masureel has consciously chosen materials with a lower impact on the environment.

Original BTC has updated its popular Hector, Bibendum and Oxford shades with an antique brass finish, a slim twisted cable (replacing the signature cotton braided cable) and each of the bone china shades is presented for the first time in a velvety matt finish to emphasis its inherent warmth and opacity. The shades are all manufactured at Original BTC’s factory in Stoke-on-Trent
The Imperialis collection, new from Omexco, presents opulent marquetry designs crafted from Paulownia wood. The veneer is delicately placed against a gilded backdrop resulting in eight art deco inspired designs. The Paulownia tree, originally known as Kiri, was discovered in Japan and brought to Europe in 1835 by Philipp Franz von Siebold, a collector of Japanese plants. In recognition of Imperial Grand Duchess Anne Pavlovna’s interest in botany, von Siebold bestowed the tree with a new name – Paulownia.
