If you’re a regular visitor to Supernice, you’re sure to be aware of how much we love the Gem glass table collection. And this Gem clear glass coffee table from the lovely people at Habitat is one of our favourites.
Designed by Matthew Hilton for Habitat, the low table features 10mm toughened safety glass with one interior shelf and two compartments. This means you can store stuff in it like a normal coffee table, if you really wanted to.
But who would want to? The whole point of a beautiful glass table like this is the table itself, and the feeling of light and space it can add to your room. Sure, you can use the integral shelves to display a nice piece of art of some curious objects as conversation pieces. But at Supernice, we believe that anything you add to this table will take away from its awesome tableness. (And yes, tableness is a word!).
Obviously you’ll need to keep the table away from sticky fingers, scratchy abrasive things and hot items, but as long as you haven’t got kids, animals or cups of tea, you’ll be fine.
Oh, and make sure you’ve got plenty of room around it, because it’ll hurt if you bask the corner of your leg on it!
The Gem clear glass table is available now from Habitat for £395, reduced from £495
Wall stickers or decals are a great way to add style to your home without leaving a mark when you move out. Here are a few great decals that we’ve found on Etsy – a great resource for home design that’s not available in normal shops.
5 – Birch tree decal
These nice subtle stickers can add a outdoorsy feel to your room, and add focus to a boring wall.
Available from DreamKidsDecal on Etsy
4 – Large hippo Decal
From subtle to ridiculous, this is our favourite decal – a huge cutout photo of a hippo that sticks to your wall! Not sure it would fit in with a suburban woodchip and chintz, but that’s why we love it!
Available from ArtfeverUK on Etsy
3 – Jungle nursery decals
Decals are a great way of cheering up a nursery or older child’s room. Take a look at this lovely, fun jungle scene. Many of these decals are described as great fur nurseries and kids’ rooms, but don’t feel limited by that. These happy monkeys could brighten up any room, or even a fun-loving office or shop.

2 – Motivational messages
How about enormous slogans stuck to your wall? You need to make sure you’re happy with the wording because you’re going to be reading it day-in day-out. Or why not create your own wording with made-to-order lettering decals?
Available from DesignDivasWallArt on Etsy
1 – Tokyo window view decal
This is the most extreme type of wall sticker, covering an entire wall with a city view from a Tokyo high rise window. We’d certainly prefer this view than the rainy Leeds outlook we see from our office window :-s

Browsing through Not On The High Street this morning, we came upon these bar code pendants from Pippa Knowles.
It’s a neat idea, and a cool way of personalising jewellery that’s different from the usual numbers and letters. You can choose your own numbers, and Pippa will create a lovely silver piece with real meaning for the lucky recipient.
As always with not on the High Street, you’ll be paying a but more for the ease and efficiency of dealing with a large organisation rather than directly with Pippa herself, so why not have a click through and look at all the other barcode jewellery creations?
