Marvellous moquette - House Gymnastics - Hats - Ribbon Stairs - Free wine and Kuniyoshi

Marvellous moquette
Recognise this? The fabric used to cover Tube seats is reborn as retro upholstery for your home.

District - Misha Black 1978

House Gymnastics
‘A cross-breed of yoga, breakdancing, climbing and gymnastics in a domestic setting’ - Harrison and Ford show us inventive new ways to exercise at home, including the Armchair Handstand, the Door Wedge and the Banister Balance.

Watch this online video for a private view of ‘Hats: An anthology by Stephen Jones’, on now at the V&A.

Ribbon Stairs
The staircase that definitely makes a statement - thanks to treads made from 10mm thick sheet metal and clever concertina folds.

Free wine and Kuniyoshi
Pop in to the Royal Academy this May for the Kuniyoshi exhibition and receive a free glass of wine with your main course at the Academy Restaurant.
