And last stop on the show trail is....Birmingham's Spring Fair, where Talking Tables brought some much-needed colour and life. A truly magnificent stand showcasing Talking Tables' fabulous SS16 ranges made us rather emosh. It's been a fabulous, fun-filled seven years - SEVEN YEARS - working with TT and we're thrilled to see how the brand has grown and flourished. No seven year itch for us - we love 'em as much as we did the first time we clapped eyes on them....

We’re glued to the concluding series of Mr Selfridge on ITV. Having featured in the inaugural series, we’re absolutely delighted that heritage German toy manufacturer Steiff is once again making an appearance. In the final series, a group of young orphans are invited to the store by Harry Selfridge to be read extracts from Winnie-the-Pooh by author A. A. Milne. Historically, the literary link is entirely accurate as illustrator EH Shepard’s iconic illustrations of the pot-bellied bear were based on his son’s Steiff teddy, Growler. At the end of the reading each child is given a Steiff teddy bear as a keepsake of their magical afternoon. Tune in tonight to make sure you don’t miss out on this bear-y lovely episode.

Another January, another fantastic show at Maison et Objet for British manufacturing champions Original BTC. Several gorgeous new collections were on display including the sleek, 1960s inspired Walter table and pendant lights in brushed satin copper and now - stop press!! - in glamourous brass, complete with twistable dimmer switch. With Valentine's Day on the horizon, we may just have to invest...

It was a day of Modern American Glamour as Jonathan Adler previewed his new collection at Maison et Objet, featuring sleek black lacquer, surreal details, warm, natural woods and of course plenty of brass. We have our eye on the sexy St Germain chair with corset-style back, the Globo table with jewel accents and the Eve mirror complete with extending fingers. Ooh la la indeed!
