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.
The British studio's Inside Out cabinet has line drawings of possible contents on its doors.
