It all started after I saw this fabulous shower curtain at Rockett St. George:


London Underground Shower Curtain

Suddenly I noticed all around me, designs using subway maps. Not just London either, New York, Tokyo – and all such great items. I think it works so well because they are so graphic  and instantly recognisable. While looking into it I also came across a fantastic online shop Art Meets Matter, here are some of their London Underground inspired designs (check out the rug!):

Art Meets MatterNow before I show you any more tube inspired loveliness I just want to give a shout out to some more products by Art Meets Matter on the London theme:

trendOk…I have to admit I have no idea if this is a trend or if for some strange reason my life has inexplicably become filled with these lip ticklers (thankfully not my own…) but for the last few months I seem to have been plagued by them. But if it’s not a trend, why not? Look how many cool products there are promoting the good old fashioned ‘tasche! It started with me commenting to friends about how many young guys I had seen on the tube sporting really long, twirly moustaches (strangely I only ever see them on the tube…where do they go??). Then I went on a hen do where the theme was also the hairy beasts, which was hilarious. I highly recommend it should you need a simple party theme…one friend now has the nickname Blakey due to her uncanny resemblence to the character from On the Buses. And then I saw this on Etsy by Suddenly, It’s Real! :

Half Pint Mustache

And now we’re coming to the real reason for this post…I think I just wanted an excuse to mention it. I recently bought one for a friend as a birthday present and I am so jealous. I may have to get myself one, I love them! Then I kept coming across this brilliant bandana on the internet:

So I decided to do a bit of digging and I’m glad I did because look at all of this hairy loveliness:

updateI know I’ve been very quiet recently – it’s not through laziness I promise, I’ve just been super busy recently. Do not despair though, I have still had my eyes and ears to the ground, seeking out some great products that illustrate brilliantly some of the trends I have mentioned before. I WANT EVERYTHING!!! Enjoy…

Non disposable, disposable stuff…

How great are these??! What a fantastic idea, Jack Bresnahan has designed these great lids that recycle boring old tin cans into various household items. I love them! (via Designvagabond)

I came across these amazing pottery bowls by Maggie Weldon on Etsy last week. By the time I’ve come to write about them now they’ve (unsurprisingly!) all sold out! I’d definitely suggest keeping an eye on the shop, I hope she’s going to add some more stock soon:

I fell in love with the Mid Century Chairs print by London based company Grace & Go some time ago. Having checked back recently I saw the Heavens to Betsy range of homewares and bags. Too slow again the range is now sold out…must be quicker!!

Ok, this is a bit of a loose connection but I was trying to find an excuse to include the great jewellery company Me & Zena. I got the ‘Take Me Down’ necklace last year for my birthday and I just love it. I took a look at their website and they have some really great new necklaces, incuding one in the shape of the British Isles so…ta da! Theres my link…

trendI first posted on this subject back in February but I’m continuing to see some really great designs based on traditionally British icons so I thought I’d do an update. I love the crown hook and postage stamp mirror and Twisted Twee’s father and son T-shirt set based on the pint symbol is brilliant. The popularity of the Union Jack as a design doesn’t seem to be abating and after the success of the British war poster ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ it seems this trend is going from strength to strength.
