It’s getting to that time of year where you need to be putting together a full and thorough Christmas wish list to avoid the inevitable disappointment of receiving presents that you don’t want or need. Thankfully, you can now make and create your own personalised Christmas Wish List by signing into The Club and using the save tab on each item to put them straight into your list. From there you can add, save and share your list as you so wish. You get rewarded for doing it, too. Anyway, if you’re looking for a place to start building up your wish list then this week’s Top 5 is full of the finest new releases to get you started. From the FLOS Snoopy Lamp, limited-edition prints from Hein Studio and Bang & Olufsen’s A9 Speaker.

Bang & Olufsen’s relentless determination to create products that push the boundaries of audio technology continues to place the company at the forefront of audio innovation. You’ve probably had your eye on one of the their speakers for some time, and it’s likely that this year is no different. However, if you are debating which one is best for you then we’re here to point you in the direction of the Beoplay A9 Speaker. The classic multi-room speaker not only looks great thanks to its slim and sculpted design, but it works with everything. Connect wirelessly to any device and enjoy the powerful 480 watts sound in whatever colour, fabric and material that you choose.
Hein Studio has been a refreshing addition to the OPUMO Art rails because the Copenhagen-based studio – led by Rebecca Hein Hoffmann – works with contrasting materials and colours, and the diversity of organic and minimalist shapes, to make every print completely unique. Each abstract print is limited-edition – signed, stamped and numbered by Hein – and is the perfect building block to begin your wish list because of its simple ability to 'beautify everyday living.'
The best presents are often the unique and unexpected ones. Well, Ren London’s latest batch of contemporary cushions offer just that. Not only are the soft linen cushions incredible comfortable, thanks to the generous duck feather insert, but they’re also a bit of a statement thanks to the handmade Noah design. Because of the handcrafted nature of each print, no two cushions are the same. Which means, you’ll be giving someone the perfect accompaniment to their afternoon nap this festive period.
Menu have been a favourite of ours for quite some time because their constant pursuit into the symmetry between aesthetic and functionality continues to serve up a range of elegant homeware that make usually laborious tasks, such as turning on a light, more charming than ever before. Not to mention seasoning your dinner. Powerful and charmingly understated, this pair of Menu grinders are a kitchen-table must-have. The ceramic mechanism can tackle a wide range of spices, nuts, seeds and dried fruits but the best thing – something you’ll really grow to love and appreciate – it’s so easy to clean.
Initially unveiled in 1967, the Flos Snoopy is the ultimate expression of carefree, happy design, marrying humour and technique without complicating a thing. It’s composed of a thick glass disc and a black enamelled reflector that rests on a crisp marble base. You know that, you’ve wandered at it many times before. You probably also know that table lamps don’t get much better. So it won’t hurt adding it to your list for another year then.
