1 Beat the blues

Designed by Young & Battaglia and handmade in the United Kingdom by Mineheart, this shade is a great way to bring some blue skies into your home, especially if you are suffering from heat-induced cabin fever.

2 Coasting along nicely

Thin slabs of high-quality agate are trimmed with a gold electroplate to create these beautiful Jonathan Adler coasters. Each set of four has a unique character, occasionally containing translucent and crystalline inclusions.

3 A good cause

A combination of scrap wood and blue “tensioning” straps creates a bright, cheery stool made from 100 per cent recycled materials. Best of all, the stools are made by the Activiteitencentrum Balders-Hoef, a social enterprise in the Netherlands that creates meaningful activities for people with physical disabilities.

4 First place

Michele de Lucchi’s First chair is a design classic, and now available from Cities boutique in Dubai’s Galleria Mall. The postmodern design consists of a round tubular steel frame, combined with the daintiest of circular backrests.

5 Smoke and mirrors

We love the delicacy of this teacup from Bloomingdale’s Home. It looks like a sliver of blue smoke is making its way across the surface of the cup – and might disappear at any moment.
