In Unprecedented Times, The Accessory That Really Matters Is A Great Mug

Decorate your conference calls.

After a week and a bit of video conference calls, it’s fair to say you’re on intimate terms with the photogenic corners of your coworkers’ WFHFits and home offices. If this hasn’t made you feel worse about your curtains/dining table/wall art/lampshade/book collection, you’re clearly impervious to interiors envy.

Something inspiring unexpected pangs of jealousy are mugs. The once humble receptacles you use to drink your hourly cup of tea get so much airtime that they’re by far the biggest indicator of your homewares taste or, dare I say it, lack thereof.

From sleek clay mugs with no handles like Arket's to the mood-lifting, sunflower-coloured ceramics at Argile Et Couleurs, there's something to suit every stop on the minimalist to maximalist spectrum. The only problem? It won't do anything to help your caffeine addiction.
