Sobro Coffee Table
As if the return of House of Cards wasn’t enough excuse to never leave the sofa again, the guys over at Sobro had to go and invent the greatest living room innovation since the remote control.

You know where to find us.
Available at Indiegogo, priced £500.
Sven Cycles Roadster
The last Sven we Brits came into contact with may have left a bad taste in our mouths, but that’s all change. The award-winning British bicycle builder of the same name has launched a lineup of semi-customised models, including the all new Roadster. Crafted in Dorset, the hand-painted black frame is designed to feel as good as it looks thanks to an upright riding position and swept back bars that deliver a relaxed ride.
Available at Sven Cycles, priced £1,500.
Acqua di Parma Travel Set
Italy has long been famous for its food, culture and impeccable sense of dress. But the country has also offered something equally desirable since 1916. Acqua di Parma’s range of grooming accoutrements have been on the bathroom shelves of the world’s best dressed for more than a century and are now available in travel sizes, so you can smell good on the go.
Available at House of Fraser, priced £99.
The Pliqo Bag
If heading away and needing to take a suit you could wear it (and bear several hours of discomfort) or put it in your case (which is sure to result in creases), or you could invest in Pliqo: a smart (and stylish) folding garment hanger that lets you fold your suit down to the size of a laptop bag with minimal creasing.
Available at Kickstarter, priced £120.
Troubadour Goods Stationery Set
It’s probably been so long since you last held a pen that you’ve forgotten what your handwriting looks like.

Comprising a handmade Italian leather notebook cover, pencil case, A5 notebook and Swiss-made pen; there’s no excuse for scrimping on thank-you notes, now.
Available at Troubadour, priced £35.
Karim Rashid X Stratus Wines Decanter
New York-based designer Karim Rashid has partnered with boundary-pushing Canadian vineyard Stratus to create a decanter that ticks the boxes of both form and function. Made to break the mould of the traditional bottle, the unusual shape actually catches sediment from unfiltered wines to enhance their taste.
Available at Stratus Wines, priced £75.
The Light Phone
Going on holiday in 2017 isn’t as simple as just switching off. With apps and Wi-Fi available everywhere, the mind is often still in the office even while the body is on the beach. The Light Phone has been designed to reverse the trend, working as a second phone on the same number as your smartphone, but – shock horror – all it can do is make and receive calls. Radical.
Available at The Light Phone, priced £130.
