A piece of art that transforms into a ping pong table – yes please!
We love this limited-edition Morag Myerscough ArtTable from our friends at The Art of Ping Pong. The ArtTable has been conceived as an art piece designed to be used as a fun ping pong surface when not hung on a wall. The idea evolved from the modern need for compact living and the love of beautiful objects with a real life purpose to populate our living spaces. Read The Art of Ping Pong Glorious story here.

We’re big fans of holistic wellness brand Wildflower and are obsessed with their unique CBD Cool Stick. The stick is a great supplemental product for an active lifestyle and an alternative to synthetic-based pain creams. It offers instant, convenient relief from muscle, joint and back pain. Harnessing the unrivalled pain-killing powers of broad-spectrum, CO2 extracted, hemp-based CBD – which contains less than 0.3% THC – this natural pain remedy has been scientifically formulated to offer reliable relief for everyday aches and discomfort.
HER Studio London is a proud, female led print studio based in East London. Best mates, Bex & Helen have a combined 20 years of experience in the textiles & fashion industry. Their prints grace only the coolest brands so it was no surprise when they collaborated with Adidas. Checkered details pop from the classic Superstar 3-Stripes and heel, because it wouldn’t be a HER Studio London collaboration without their signature eye for prints. Oooh, they can be personalised too!
