A LAP TRAY THAT ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD...
A BAG THAT IGNITES YOUR INNER CARNIVAL QUEEN...
iWoodesign Pamper Tray Warm Walnut £650
Paula Cademartori Anna Appliquéd Leather Shoulder Bag £985 net-a-porter.com
Usually the idea of a ‘Lap Tray’ would conjure up visions of a terribly unglamorous TV dinner. But behold the brilliantly named ‘Pamper Tray’. The notable Scandinavian aesthetic of the Pamper Tray comes from its clean lines, lack of adornment and simple silhouette. Veneered in a stunning warm walnut, the minimalist piece is offered a sense of the traditional caused by the wood’s naturally striped pattern. Being itself completely stowable – courtesy of its ingenious folding design – the tray features side storage for papers or remote controls and includes removable magnetic brackets for angling a laptop, making it perfect for working from. Although we prefer the idea of breakfast in bed. Hint Hint.
Italian-Brazilian designer Paula Cademartori designs lavish yet functional pieces meant to be cherished. This ‘Anna’ shoulder bag is crafted from pastel-pink leather with appliqués in vibrant shades of plum, periwinkle and papaya. We can’t help but think of bright lights and carnivals when we look at this oh so fun and fabulous bag.

We’ve fallen head over heels in love with Liz Nehdi’s stunning designs. The Meandering Thames Scarf, a favourite of ours, is a beautiful painterly design in pink, mint and baby blue, balanced by subdued neutrals such as yellow ochre and navy. Based on an original painting by Liz Nehdi inspired by the iconic river of her adopted home of London, this generously sized scarf can be folded and styled in a multitude of ways. The unique design is complemented by luscious silk twill and hand rolled edges. Swoon. 15
