Comfy seating is key to making you feel like you’re at home, and the Yam chair by Norwegian brand Northern is subtle enough to blend in with most interiors, yet striking enough to stand out in a contemporary space. Each seat in this series designed by Mattias Stenberg has been made with soft contours that enhance comfort and add support to the overall structure.
Northern, ‘Yam’ chair, £1,330
Cosy and decorative textiles are great for making a house feel more homely. The more pillows the better, we say! This square-shaped cushion cover is decorated with an orange Love pattern, printed onto a natural-coloured linen fabric. It’s a design based on the graphics of the book Spirit&Life, which was published in celebration of Marimekko’s 50th anniversary.

Sound and light are both great means of creating a nice atmosphere in your home, and with the aGlow Bluetooth speaker, you get both in one. With its beautiful details and clean look, it gives you an all-round experience of a functional speaker and elegantly designed product. You can wake up with the alarm clock function or grab it by its leather strap to bring the music with you wherever you go. Even at night, aGLOW will do its best to lighten up the dark with its integrated colourful LED light, while playing your favourite tunes.

Artwork truly makes a house feel like a home, and we love the abstract style and autumnal colours of this art print by Berit Mogensen Lopez. This beautiful series of prints is gouache on watercolour paper, where texture, transparency and the organic shapes create a floating and dream-like expression in a unique universe.
