A bookcase by British designer Simon Pengelly has a concave front, with shelves spaced closer together at the centre and becoming more curved at the top, bottom and to one side.

The wooden bookcase can be used side-by-side with another that has a mirrored pattern to create a concave front.

Pengelly has also created a set of sofas, chairs and benches with simple grey or beige upholstery.

Lazy chairs and tables by Freshwest have legs similar to strings of sausages, finished in a colourful stain except for a single chipolata-shaped element on one leg. On other models, just one sausage is coloured while other elements are left natural.
