At the Milan Furniture Fair in April, Magis launched a cardboard playhouse designed by the Spanish designer, Javier Mariscal. Now available in the UK as part of the Mariscal: Drawing Life exhibition at London’s Design Museum (more on the show itself, in the next few days) “Villa Julia” is a bijou residence with some handsome cladding work and its own garden tap. Viewing recommended…

“Villa Julia” is available from the Design Museum Shop – though, as yet, doesn’t appear to be on the Shop’s website – and comes with a set of stickers so that children (or fans of playhouses) can personalise their own Mariscalian villa.

It’s not cheap at £159 so if you’re looking for something a little more affordable, then there’s always this limited edition Colours Are Always Beautiful poster (£12.50) which is also sold in the Design Museum Shop.
