Focusing on what makes her smile, which is something we all need this season, Anya Hindmarch selects the Claymen family by Aman Khanna. Chosen for its "craft and simplicity," this hand-shaped collection is inspired by human emotion, each piece leaving the studio with a unique expression.
Among Hindmarch's other favourites are Sir Terence Conran's Michelin-inspired Hector Bibendum Table Lamp, Tobar's playful Chattering Teeth, which sit on her office desk, and the Bellhop Table Lamp, whose portability illuminates her country escapes. Lastly, Hindmarch recommends the Conran-exclusive Original Peanut Butter from Jackpot; "like a work of art."
Esteemed British designer Anya Hindmarch founded her eponymous business in 1987, becoming the first accessories designer to hold an on-schedule show at London Fashion Week.

"We were all so sad to hear of Sir Terence's passing. He was such a hugely influential figure for British design, retail and hospitality," reflects Francis Sultana. The designer believes the Brimstone Side Table epitomises our founder's taste; "classic, uncluttered with a love of craftsmanship and honest materials."
Sultana also compliments our Art Deco-informed Stainless-Steel Barware, which makes an excellent gift, as well as our exclusive assortment of Christmas Tree Decorations. Sultana argues that "there is always room for colour and kitsch on a tree... you just need to know where to draw the line!"
In-demand interior and furniture designer Francis Sultana seamlessly fuses art with design, as evidenced throughout his eponymous studio, currently celebrating its 11th year.

Crossing paths with both Vico Magistretti and Fritz Hansen over his illustrious career, Sir Paul Smith highlights the Carimate Chair. "Anyone that's seen my office will tell you I absolutely do not need another chair, but I'd be very happy to have this one!" reveals Sir Paul.
The Carimate celebrates a century of Magistretti's design prowess, re-launched in a limited and numbered edition of 999. First brought to the UK by our late founder Sir Terence Conran in 1962, this enhanced version combines an FSC-certified beech frame with a handwoven flax linen seat.
Revered for his services to fashion, Sir Paul Smith's design expertise knows no bounds, as showcased in his collaborations with the likes of Anglepoise, Caran d'Ache and Land Rover.
