DEEP HEAT

New from Lignet Roset is the Clam sofa bed. Shown in this beautiful mustard-hued upholstery, it manages to be both sleek and comfortable. Belying its slender proportions, it has a generous sleep area when unfurled. An easy-to-use click mechanism helps it convert from upright sofa, to a lower, loungey-style day bed to a spacious double bed, with a lightness a world apart from the standard sofa bed.

Each year, new or young designers are invited to submit work for the Concours Cinna Révélateur de Talents, a design talent contest launched by Ligne Roset’s sister brand, Cinna. Designers Léo Dubreil and Baptiste Pilato presented their first project, Shell (later renamed Clam), which won them two first prizes in the contest, one from the jury and the other from the public.

The wit and originality of Italy's luxury design atelier, Fornasetti, is beautifully captured in these bold citrus motifs, for its new 'Arance' wallpaper.Arance are a prolific theme throughout the Fornasetti archive, originally appearing on the tray ‘Fette d’arancia’ in the 1950s and repurposed by Barnaba Fornasetti in the 90s as a graphic fabric print. It nowforms part of the new 'Senza Tempo' wallpaper collection, which consists of 19 whimsical designs produced as part of its latest venture with British wallpaper creators, Cole & Son, launching in the UK in March.

Produced in Portugal, the ceramics areslip cast with a high gloss hand-glaze.

ON THE SCENE

Missoni's new Panorama collection sees nature transformed into a spectacular tableau.

These gorgeous cylindrical lamps won our vote.
