Items to love, News and Trends

international inspiration

I’ve always loved the gift shops at the Tate Modern (tate.org.uk/modern) on London’s South bank. After the hysteria of High Street superstores, there’s something about the hushed, almost reverential feeling in a gallery shop that soothes the soul. It helps that it’s chock-a-block with beautiful, covetable items – from glossy coffee-table books to art posters, stationery and journals to jewellery and homeware… So imagine my delight when I found this mug by Designers Anonymous for Tate that reminded me of these ‘Rainbow Warrior’ images shot in New Mexico. Simply serendipitous.
