Sometimes we have all the function and none of the fun. Homewares are about more than just what works for us, but in the sage words of Marie Kondo, what sparks joy, too. This week, we wanted to highlight homewares that do more than ticking a box of usefulness but simply add to your space in joyful and creative ways.

Below are 11 of our favourite creative homewares brands.
