A little mermaid
This ceramic mug from Typo is shaped like a mermaid’s tail, which curves around to form a distinctive handle. It’s a novel way to consume your cuppa.

There’s a stunning fragility to this paperweight from Zara Home, which looks like a jellyfish gently floating through the air. Standing 18 centimetres high, it’s guaranteed to be a conversation starter, wherever you put it.

Too nice to light
We love this turtle-shaped candle from Zara Home. The only problem is that the etching is so beautiful that we don’t think we could ever bring ourselves to light the wick.

It’s not your typical scene – a crocodile with a fishing wire trying to catch its dinner – but that’s what makes this jug from At Home in the Country so covetable. The animals are crafted from pewter and the jug can hold over a litre of liquid, so it’s the perfect showpiece when you are hosting a dinner party.
