Is there such a thing as a nice-looking dog bed? I have just moved to a small, open-plan apartment and there is nowhere to tuck away my dog’s bed, so I would like to replace it with something a little more pleasing on the eye.
There is a pretty patterned range of 100 per cent cotton donut dog beds that are as pretty as they are practical. The Summer Dog prints range comes in two colourways (seaside, pictured, and sorbet ) and features colourful dog shapes printed on a neutral background. Snug and secure for your dog, the beds are handmade in the UK, and are also machine washable. A 60cm bed costs £45.

I have been looking for coloured glassware for a small summer celebration in our garden this year. I want the table to look special, but also invest in glassware that I will use in the future. Any suggestions?
LSA International’s handmade Asher tumblers come in ten rich colours. The glasses are sold individually so you could mix and match colours, or opt for all different colours, which include tropical green, lime, amber, white, violet, mocha, black, cobalt, turquoise and red. There are wine glasses available in the same colours and co-ordinating Basis jugs.
