Co Kerry-based artist Molly Ellis is the creator of this Ewe Sir paper weight. We’re digging the butterfly, but she has lots of other designs, they cost €25 and are in stock at The Design & Craft Studio, Main Street, Charleville, Co Cork, and on line at www.thedesignandcraftstudio.com and www.etsy.com/ie/shop/EWESIR

I love the simplicity of this polished brass candle holder by Ilse Crawford for Georg Jensen, it costs €99 from www.makersandbrothers.com 

I adore this Branch Out deluxe set by Studio Lorier I spotted on DaWanda.com. But with the €849 it will stay but a wish. It’s a multipurpose piece of furniture, with a small footprint. 

The branches can be connected in countless ways too, so a flowerpot, table, lamp or a next branch can be connected. So clever.
