Functional products are rarely fun and designer goods often come with ouchy price tags. The Design Dispensary is different. Specialising in globally sourced homewares and accessories from boutique companies, everything serves a purpose and does it with style. Sure, some items aren't exactly everyday necessities. Though others you'll wonder how you ever did without. But remember: utility is in the eye of the beholder. Or deerholder, in the case of the antler coat-rack. More favourites include the chalkboard clock, lilypad table and grassy picnic rug. Confuse neighbours and amuse friends for years to come. M. PADULA
