There’s something reassuringly old-school about the Yamaha CD-S1000 and the A-S1000 amplifier. Rather big and heavy but very well built with lovely wood trim on the sides. Available in both silver and black.
For more information visit the Yamaha website.
The chrome legs on the DFS Cavali Range looking pay more than a passing resemblance to to the classic Pieff furniture of the 60’s and 70’s.
The range is also in the current 1/2 price sale and available in much nicer colours to the one shown in the pictures. I personally would go for the cream or beige.

Furniture is for life, not just for fashion. Nicole Swengley looks at the growing popularity of investment pieces in this interesting piece for the Telegraph:
The Ben Rose Home-site of the famous movie ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, cantilevered over the ravine, these two steel and glass buildings, which can never be duplicated, have incredible vistas of the surrounding woods. This is a unique property designed by A. James Speyer and David Haid, both notable architects of the 20th Century.
Available to buy for a mere $2,300,000 through Sothebys

REJUVENATION RE-LAUNCHES ATOMIC AGE WITH NEW SATELLITE LINE OF MID-CENTURY MODERN LIGHTING AND HARDWARE
