4 products for 4 rooms – dining hallway living working

June 14, 2011

I’m running a series of blog posts, each covering product recommendations. This post features products I discovered last month during Clerkenwell Design Week.


Young and Norgate is a small group of designers and craftsmen based in Devon.  Among the furniture on display was the Zimmer sideboard, a perfect piece for any dining room and available with 5 different colour fronts, with other colours available on special order.  The craftsmanship in their furniture is first class and each piece is lovingly made using the highest quality materials available.  Other furniture available includes a writing desk and bedroom furniture, they also accept commissions.


Cycling has grown in popularity over the last few years but one problem, especially if you live in an urban area, is the storage of the bike when you are not riding it.  Quarterre have designed a number of solutions that will make the cluttered communal hallway a thing of the past.  The bike rack shown will hold two bikes in the space of one, is well designed and manufactured and even includes leather pads to protect your bike frame.


Bolon are a Swedish company that manufacturer textile flooring that is hard-wearing but also has a soft feel.  Although designed for public environments if you have a large living space and don’t want wood flooring it would be very suitable.  The product is available in 6 base colours and also 2 striped versions, and comes in either a roll or tile format.

Every home office needs a good quality desk light and the new TypeC task light from Anglepoise would be a great choice.  Designed by Kenneth Grange, it is their first light combining their unique balance system with the latest LED technology.  The new TypeC includes an interchangeable head and driver unit therefore ensuring sustainability for the future.
