These look decent for cheep, they come in packs of two, and do different sizes.

I know it's not exactly what you're after, but it could be worth checking the glassware/ vases section in TK Maxx, lots of interesting and unusual shaped stuff and you can get some Terrarium-esque pieces which work well with succulents.

Looking for a 90cm Vitsoe 'up & over' cabinet. Can swap for a 2 door 90cm cabinet if anyone's interested. Will also consider selling

I'm after some suggestions for a sofa for my new place. I like the aesthetics of the modern low backed sofa but the reality of vegging out after a heavy weekend on something like a hays mags modular doesn't appeal in all honesty. Any suggestions for a good compromise between looks and comfort would be appreciated.

The Hay Hackney sofa is decent, the raf x kvadrat textiles are fantastic

Where are people typically buying their art from? I've found loads of stuff recently but it seems inevitably the stuff I like is ££££'s. Can anyone recommend some galleries or websites selling work by less well established artists that doesnt cost thousands. I'd love some work by James naughton but I haven't got thousands to spend unfortunately.

I have two online galleries, predominantly selling post war work from the 50s through 80s. Prices start at around £40 up to five figures so plenty of choice. Happy to do a little fuk discount too. PM if interested.
