Forget the computer, the printer or the chap from UPS, the one must-have in any home office is a really nice mug. At the moment I'm enjoying the delights of the Repeat Repeat range (pictured) but my full library of mugs also includes a more cultural mug of coffee, from Art Meets Matter which features designs using classic Penguin paperbacks (Jane Eyre, My Man Jeeves, Civilisation, etc), covers of Arthur Ransome’s novels including Swallows and Amazons, and some wacky Pop Art posters. I drink out of The Pursuit of Love every day. For those of you with a more celebrity bent, there is also a series of mugshots of famous folk who have fallen foul of the law (Hugh Grant, Keanu Reeves, Jane Fonda).
Or perhaps you'd prefer Noggin the Nog. Bagpuss. Ivor the Engine. The Clangers. You can now have one of your childhood favourites on your mug courtesy of Josie and Katy Firmin who run Cosmo Place Studios in London and Canterbury. Read more about them at their web site here.
