The copper and brass trend in the home is experiencing a long and worthy tenure and it extends to bars and restaurants too, especially copper mugs. In Season 2 (episode ‘Bali H’ai’) of Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill and Kim Wexler drink Moscow Mules served in hammered copper mugs which are perfect for the vodka, ginger beer and lime combo – the copper tends to bring out the flavours. The copper and lime colours also look fabulous together.

Baccarat Chateau White Wine Glass, As seen in Fifty Shades of Grey, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League

Christian Grey chooses a most discerning wine glass with which to entertain his guest in Fifty Shades of Grey. Bruce Wayne aka Batman also favours the same tapered glass in Batman V Superman. It’s a Baccarat Chateau White Wine Glass. Inspired by the taste-vin silhouette that sommeliers use, the wide rounded bowl opens up complex notes, aerates the wine and highlights the subtly smooth aromatic body.

The tapered lip enables the diffusion of aromatic richness and prevents the wine, when swirled, from rising too high up along the glass. This sophisticated stemware is worthy of any celebratory occasion or festive soiree.

The perfect present for wordsmiths, those who hanker for the days before iPhones and laptops ruled our lives and of course, Kubrick fans.

Ettore Sottsass’ legendary “Valentine” portable red typewriter in Alex’s room in A Clockwork Orange is one of the most famous examples of 1960s Italian design and bears witness to the time when Olivetti was leading the way in industrial design “the pre-digital precursor to the MacBook, as emblematic of style as it was of mobility”.

The ultimate office chair! Bruce Wayne aka Batman’s desk chair from the ultra high tech batcave in Batman v Superman has a series of 11 torsion spring-loaded bearing joints which conform to your exact spine impression, then lock into place for one-of-a-kind fit.

Barcelona chair by Knoll as seen in: Tron: Legacy, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, American Psycho, Casino Royale and Justice League

The one and only Barcelona chair by Mies van der Rohe.

Sexy as hell and an icon of the modern movement, the Knoll Barcelona chair designed by Mies van der Rohe is a star performer in many films including Tron: Legacy‘s digital world “Safehouse”, in Bruce Wayne’s modernist abode in Batman v Superman as well as Amercian Psycho and Casino Royale. With very good reason, it should also star in your home.

The Barcelona Chair by Knoll is one of the most recognised objects of the last century. The simple elegance and graceful profile has made it a widely celebrated modern lounge chair that epitomises Mies van der Rohe’s most famous axiom, ‘less is more.’ From the hand-buffed steel frame to the individual leather squares carefully welted together, the Barcelona Chair by Knoll is a singular modern lounge chair that pays tribute to the marriage of modern design and exceptional craftsmanship.

Although an exemplar of the machine style, the chair is largely hand-made: the cushions are made from 148 separate pieces of leather and the chromed stainless steel frame is hand buffed to a mirror finish.

Often imitated and copied, here at F&F we advocate buying the real deal.
