The mainly monochrome range still packs a punch with space-age chairs and sofas as well as industrial-style tables made from matte carbon fibre, giving them an unusual tactile appeal.

Pieces of history This month, wall covering company Little Greene will reveal its fourth collection of London wallpapers. The prints are inspired by the English Heritage wallpaper archive and named according to the area where each original fragment was first found. The Albemarle Street covering was discovered in a low-ceilinged secondfloor bedroom, yet it boasted a pattern repeat of six feet. The Upper Brook Street design is based on a bright kniphofia flower decoration that was found hand-painted over a pre-hung paper in the late 18th century. Upper Brook Street in minuit, £170 per roll, littlegreene.com 75
