bibliochaiseEveryone needs a chair to kick back into with a good book – but the Bibliochaise Home by Nobody & Co might just take it a step too far.

La Bibliochaise has been created by a copywriter: Alisee Matta and an art director Giovanni Gennari forming the design brand Nobody & Co.

The idea is simple – a comfy chair with removable covers, coupled with a wooden frame with room for your personal library. And that’s a lot of book space – 5 metres of shelving built in, with enough variation in slots to fit most of your volumes.

A must-have piece for avid book readers with style (and deep pockets!)

The chair comes with a choice of white, black or aubergine-varnished wood, all available for around £3,550.

zack loft towel holder We always thought the Loft towel holder was a great idea. Designer stainless steel with no drilling required – you just have to be careful to place it carefully first time because the self-adhesive backing is very strong! We just received this impromptu message from a customer:

Just a quick email to say that the Zack Loft towel holders are brilliant. They are stylish, easy to fix and very practical. No more towels on the floor! I have bought them before, will buy them again and recommend them to others without hestiation!
Best wishes and thank you for your excellent service.

So, no more excuses, get organised in the kitchen or bathroom! The Loft Towel Holder is available from Proleno for £6.95.

Despite the recent miserable weather, I’m still hopeful that we will have some summer sun before too long. The prospect of balmy evenings in the garden with a glass of chilled wine (carefully counting the units of course!) is particularly pleasing. So let’s take a look at that essential accessory – the wine cooler.
Egg-O wine coolerThe new innovation on the block is the Egg-O, conceived and developed in Vienna. The unique feature of the Egg-O is the lid, which has flexible fins on the inner side. This allows the lid to adapt to different bottle shapes. With the handle incorporated into the cooler, there’s no need to remove the bottle for pouring – the wine keeps chilled for longer and you don’t drip condensation everywhere. The robust construction also makes this great for picnics. The Egg-O is available in four colours – blue, red, green and cream. You can buy the Egg-O at Proleno for £26.95.

Bachus wine cooler

If you want something stylish, with functionality, take a look at the Bachus wine cooler by Zack of Germany. In brushed 18/10 stainless steel and incorporating three cooling elements, the Bachus will grace any table indoors or out. The inner cooling pack liner can be frozen before use to provide additional chilling. The Bachus is available at Proleno for £38.95.

Oletto wine cooler Zack have a number of stainless steel wine coolers in their range. The Oletto, shown right, is the only one that has a mirror-polished finish – this will really catch the sun if it ever comes out!!
You can buy the Oletto wine cooler for £41.95.

Thanks to LH from the United Kingdom for the following review:

Kitchen roll holder I have just received the ‘Astello kitchen roll holder’ (short version) and have to say that the product is nothing short of SUPERB!. Extremely well packaged and made to an even higher standard. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!! To potential other customers, this product is very sleek and elegant and will fit in tremendously well to any kitchen, whether tradiitonal or modern in design.

Product arrived within just two days via Royal Mail first class post (recorded delivery). I cannot emphasise enough how well-made this wall mounted kitchen roll holder is. Although more expensive than many similar products, it delivers in quality alone – TWICE ITS ASKING PRICE. In summary, this is a very worthwhile investment. The product is made of high grade stainless steel which is very apparent as soon as the box is opened. There is an immediate detection of HIGH QUALITY – FIRST AND FOREMOST.

In addition, all necessary accessories are supplied with this product (screws, etc.) and individually packaged within the box.

TREMENDOUS!!!!!!!!

multi kitchen roll holder Originally due for release in November, production of Zack’s Combo multi-roll holder has sadly been delayed. Judging by advance interest, these are likely to disappear as soon as they arrive on the shelves. It’s not surprising – the usual sleek styling from Zack in brushed stainless steel, coupled with neat functionality makes the Combo a great addition to any kitchen. Delivery is now expected during January – we’ll post here once they are available.
